Junior Cycle Curriculum

Our curriculum constantly adapts to meet the changing needs of students and offers a diverse range of subjects at all levels in both Junior and Senior Cycle.

Junior Cycle Curriculum

First year students will study all of the core subjects and option subjects for all of their first year. They will then choose three optional subjects to study with their core subjects for their Junior Cycle programme. We encourage all students to study a language as one of their three optional subjects. Science is compulsory at Junior Cycle. Students are surveyed on their subject choice in the latter half of first year and every opportunity is taken to ensure student preference is met resulting in the highest possible satisfaction rating.
