About the Repeat Leaving Certificate Programme

The Repeat Year is a stand-alone programme run in a separate section of the school. It operates on a different timetable to the rest of the school. A full and wide range of subjects and levels are available from very experienced teachers who have helped pupils to dramatically improve their grades and CAO points. Detailed notes in all the subject areas are provided by the teachers. Throughout the year, they provide

  • Constant supervision.
  • Caring support structures with a dedicated Year Head.
  • A safe and secure environment for teaching and learning to take place.

Most of those students who have taken part in the programme have gone on to further their studies at third level institutions in Dublin and elsewhere.

Other Benefits

Compulsory supervised day and evening study takes place in a controlled and silent environment. Seminars on study and exam skills take place at the beginning of the school year. Students are encouraged to avail of the services of the school’s Career Guidance Department. Comprehensive career guidance is indeed a core part of the programme. The individual career needs of each student are carefully explored and discussed on a number of occasions during the year.

Regular Progress Reports are compiled and sent out to parents throughout the year. The Year Head is available to deal with any concerns that parents might have as the year progresses. Mock Exams will take place in February mid-term.
