CSPE, English, History, Gaeilge, Mathematics, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science, SPHE.

Students are offered the following optional subjects on a carousel of 2 weeks each as part of our taster programme and then may choose to keep one subject in each category for the remainder of the Junior cycle. Categories change due to student preferences.

Category 1: Business/ Home Economics/ Engineering

Category 2: Wood Technology/ Coding/ Geography

Category 3: Art/ Digital Media Literacy/ Graphics

Category 4: French/ Applied Technology/ Wood Technology

*Please note that subjects may change due to numbers.

The three-year Junior Cycle programme is complemented by the Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP) that supports learners and sets out clear learning objectives. It enables the learners to take part in a range of innovative initiatives, to arrange educational outings and interactive learning experiences. The positive progress of our learners is rewarded during our celebration day. The JCSP is not separate from the Junior Certificate programme is merely acts as a means of guiding students towards the successful completion of the Junior Certificate.
