Curriculum

The school has a history of academic achievement and offers a broad-ranging curriculum to its students.

Senior Cycle

At Senior Cycle students take three core and four optional subjects for examination purposes. The core subjects are English, Irish and Mathematics. Exemption from Irish is given to students who satisfy the criteria laid down in circular M10/94. During Transition Year students are again exposed to a wide variety of subjects.
Aptitude tests are taken and one of the functions of these tests is to aid the student in making her choices. The Guidance Counsellor will meet with all Transition Year students to review test results and discuss option choice.

An information talk is held for parents with regard to courses offered and third level course requirements. Students also receive information regarding the optional subjects available and the selection process. The school offers two Leaving certificate programmes: Established Leaving certificate and Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP)
