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.
Our extensive Transition Year Programme includes a wide variety of subjects, enjoyable extra curricular activities, International Day and an Overseas School Tour.
The Transition Year Co-Ordinator is Mrs. Anita Rowntree
