Senior Cycle Curriculum

Senior Cycle students follow a two year programme leading to the Leaving Certificate Examination. During Transition Year students are given the opportunity to sample all Leaving Certificate subjects, therefore assisting them in making their subject choice for senior cycle. Subjects are offered at all levels with students being encouraged to pursue subjects at higher level.

We take a student-centred approach to subject options where students are surveyed well in advance of entering senior cycle. Every opportunity is taken to ensure that student preference is met. Students are provided with advice and guidance, through our career guidance service, when it comes to making subject choices appropriate to their abilities, interests and aptitudes.
