Junior Cert Cycle

The Junior Cycle places students at the centre of the educational experience and offers students more active ways of learning.  Over the three-year Junior Cycle students will engage in a number of classroom based assessments that will help develop life-long skills.  While there will be a final summative assessment, set and marked by the State Examination Commission, the new Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement that each student will receive at the end of their three years, will capture all the areas of learning that students have been engaged in.
