We aim to offer two European Languages (French and German) in 1st Year. Students partake of as many of the above subjects as possible, allowing them to identify their areas of interest and aptitude.

At the end of First Year, students will choose between the different Subject Options

available. Subject Options are carefully considered, to provide the widest possible choice for the students.

Accounting,  Agricultural Science,  Art & Design,  Biology,  Business,  Chemistry,   Construction Studies,  Design and Construction Graphics (D.C.G.),  Engineering,  English,   French,  Gaeilge,  Geography,  German, History,  Home Economics,  Mathematics,  L.C.V.P.,  Physics.



All students have access to state of the art information technology (see Facilities)

Transition Year is a time for participation in all subject areas – again this gives students the time to re-assess their aptitudes before facing the terribly important subject choices for Leaving Certificate.

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) operates for those students with the appropriate subject choices.

Subject choices for the Leaving Certificate are made at the end of Transition Year. Choices made at this stage are informed and well thought out. Subjects are time-tabled only if there is sufficient demand.


The majority of our students attend Third Level, while others choose apprenticeships or work placement.
