Transition Year

Transition Year is designed as a ‘stepping stone’ from the Junior Cycle to the more academic demands of the Senior Cycle. Students who have completed the Junior Certificate are strongly advised to undertake this programme which has been greatly enhanced over the years. It encourages an awareness of the world of work and contributes to the growth of self confidence and personality through a wide range of academic, cultural, aesthetic, sporting and leisure activities. As part of Transition Year Programme students have an opportunity to go on an educational tour abroad.
