Transition Year

“The Transition Year Programme promotes the personal, social, vocational and educational development of students and prepares them for their role as autonomous, participative and responsible members of society”

– Department of Education Guidelines

Our Transition Year Programme is an optional year that bridges the gap between the more dependent learning style of Junior Certificate and the Leaving Certificate. It is a popular option in our school, with
places offered subject to availability.

It encourages personal and social development and recognises the need for students to grow in independence. Transition Year fosters academic achievement as students prepare for a Leaving Certificate programme, further study and adult and working life. It encourages the development of a wide range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills
