Transition Year

Transition Year is a one-year optional programme taken after Junior Cycle and before the two-year Leaving Certificate programme. It provides opportunities for students to engage interactively in the learning process and encourages independent research and learning.

Our Transition Year programme, within set guidelines, is designed to suit the needs and interests of our students while taking into account the possibilities offered by local community interests.

There is no state examination at the end of Transition Year. Assessment is carried out on an ongoing basis and can include school-based assessment of projects or portfolios, oral, aural, practical and written activities.

Evaluation of activities such as work experience or community service will often involve the providers or hosts of such activities.
