The Curriculum (Senior Years)

Transition Year will be compulsory and will be a vibrant part of the life of the school.

The Leaving Cert curriculum will offer a similarly comprehensive array of subject option.

Subject to demand, the school will also offer Leaving Certificate Applied and Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme.

There will be an extremely wide variety of extra-curricular options available and we will expect/need EVERYONE to get involved in some way.


Music will be available to Leaving Cert Higher Level but will also be part of the school for personal enjoyment.  We anticipate concerts, talent shows and performances throughout the year.  A thriving Music Department will be a key feature of the life of the school with an orchestra and choirs. Drama Clubs will be part of each year from 1st Year.  A Transition Year show and participation in Drama Festivals and competitions will be encouraged.
