Transition Year is an optional one-year programme which provides a bridge enabling students to make the transition to the Senior Cycle more successfully.
It offers a different agenda to the other five examination-driven years of secondary school. More than in any other year, it is the level of input from each pupil that is significant.
We offer a broad and varied programme of activities throughout the year, which aims to introduce students to new and interesting subjects and allow them to develop new life skills.
A planned schedule of activities is developed for each term, ranging from trips and excursions to workshops, work experience and community care. A particular highlight is the in school initiatives which involves every student such as; Green Schools, Amber Flag, GAA Future Leaders, Young Social Innovators, Pen Pal Project & many more.
It is the development of independent learning, the commitment with which the wide-ranging activities are engaged and the support and encouragement of parents/guardians which leads to the success of each Transition Year.
