Transition Year

This is the year after Junior Cycle, during which a student can take the opportunity to develop personally, develop skills and take a year out from the pressures of examinations and consider what path they wish to follow in the future.

Advantages: Students’ development is encouraged through sport, the arts, social action, work experience, critical thinking, various skills and teamwork.

Core subjects are essential elements of the Transition Year. Research has shown that those students who participate fully in Transition Year generally perform better in the Leaving Certificate and have less difficulty with the independent learning style required in third level institutions.
