Senior Cycle

Senior Cycle

All students are prepared for Leaving Certificate. In addition to the three core subjects, students select four elective options from the choices available.

At Senior level, students may opt to take a subject at Higher or Ordinary Level.  All students have Religious Education, Career Guidance and Physical Education classes weekly. Academic excellence is rewarded at the end of the school year with prizes for First, Second and Third place in every class. Awards are made to individual students for outstanding achievements in all subjects as part of a ceremony that recognises contribution in all areas of school life.
