Our classes are mixed ability classes in first year. Currently our pupils take 9 subjects to Junior Certificate for certification. All pupils study Gaeilge, English, Maths, History, Geography, French and Science for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year. In 1st year every pupil currently studies Business Studies, Metalwork, Materials Technology Wood, Technical Graphics and Art. At the end of first year pupils currently choose two of these five options. All pupils will study Physical Education and Social, Personal and Health Education ( S.P.H.E.) from September 2017 as Short Courses as part of a Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement (J.C.P.A.).
