Transition Year Programme

St. Brogan’s College Transition Year Programme is a highly organised and extremely successful programme within the school.   During Transition Year students begin their Leaving Certificate courses in Irish, English, Maths and French.  They also cover parts of every Leaving Certificate subject thereby getting a taste of all subjects to assist them in making  a choice for the Leaving Certificate.

Transition Year offers pupils a broad educational experience with a focus on personal and social development. It encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning, thereby transforming them from dependent to independent learners. The value accorded to Transition Year is reflected in the fact it is a compulsory year in the school.

A number of non Leaving Certificate subjects are also studied helping to broaden the educational focus of the student.
