Junior Cycle

Students experience all subjects in First Year. This is considered to be best practice as it allows them to make choices later on based on knowledge and the experience of having studied all subjects. The subjects taken are: Irish, English, Mathematics, French, History, Geography, R.E., Art, Home Economics, Music, Science, Business Studies, P.E., S.P.H.E. and C.S.P.E.

Junior Cycle Changes

From 2014, a new junior cycle is being introduced on a phased basis. It will feature newly developed subjects and short courses, a focus on literacy, numeracy and key skills, and new approaches to assessment and reporting. English is the first subject to undergo this change from September 2014. This new Junior Cycle will build on students’ learning in Primary School and help them to prepare for the Senior Cycle. It is designed to make students more confident and independent in their learning, well-equipped to face the challenges of the Leaving Certificate.
