Transition Year

Transition Year provides a bridge between Junior and Senior Cycle. It offers a broad educational experience promoting the personal, social, academic and vocational development of each student. It provides us with opportunities to create new learning environments in which each student can discover their own individual talents, aptitudes and abilities.
Some highlights from our TY programme include the comprehensive taster programme of all Leaving Certificate subjects, trip abroad, along with many other activities and initiatives.
