LEaving certificate

The Leaving Certificate  is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering some specialisation towards a particular career option. Students following the Leaving Certificate (Established) programme are required to study at least five subjects, one of which must be Irish. In general, students take five or more subjects (usually seven) for examination. All subjects are offered at two levels, ordinary and higher. Irish and Mathematics are available at foundation level also.

In our school, teachers, students, guidance counsellor and parents/guardians work together as a team on subject options, career guidance and on-going progress, to ensure each student is best placed to achieve her maximum potential. Teachers and members of the Care Team are available to parents throughout the year, for discussion or advice. For more information visit www.ncca.ie
