The Leaving Certificate is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering them a chance to specialise towards a particular career option.
The curriculum summaries on our website are intended to assist Senior Cycle students and parents of the College. They will also be of assistance to Transition Year students when making subject choices. They will allow students studying a subject to look ahead and plan in a given subject area. The summaries will also assist with study and revision.
These curriculum summaries are a guide. Each subject department in the College covers material in a different manner and the summaries published reflect this. While it is intended that topics are covered at the times indicated, circumstances may necessitate alteration to the programme.
