Transition Year

The Transition Year Programme is a unique one year programme that promotes the personal, social, vocational and educational development of students and prepares them for their role as autonomous, participative and responsible members of society. TY provides a bridge to enable students to make the transition from the more dependent type of learning associated with Junior Cycle to the more independent learning environment associated with Senior Cycle. It encourages the development of a wide range of transferable critical thinking and creative problem solving skills. They study many subjects including English, Irish, Maths, Geography, History, Music, Science, Computer Studies, Chinese, Business, Engineering, P.E. & Leadership. TY students participate in a wide variety of school excursions both nationally & internationally. They will raise money for charity, participate in work experience and gain confidence through active participation in the programme.
