Students continue with this course of study for the 2 yr duration and as with Junior Cycle students, sit all house exams, class exams and in February of 6th Yr, they sit ‘Pre’s’ which means sitting a full Leaving Cert preparation examination held, as much as possible, under exact Leaving Cert conditions.

From the Career Guidance perspective, colleges are invited to the school throughout the year to address students on their future post-leaving course options. Students are also advised to attend a major careers exhibition to view options for those who wish to enter the employment market straight from school.
