Leaving Certificate


Senior Cycle

At the end of third year students make a decision about which option they will choose for Senior Cycle. A range of information sessions are held for students and parents to help them make a more informed choice.

Students have a range of options:

  1. Transfer directly from Junior Cycle to participate in a two year Leaving Certificate programme with an option to do LCVP (Leaving Cert Vocational Programme) depending on subjects selected.
  2. Transfer from Junior Cycle to participate in an alternative Leaving Certificate Programme- the Leaving Cert Applied two year programme
  3. Select Transition Year (one year programme) prior to completing a 2 year Leaving Cert/LCA programme.
