The Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme that forms the first year of a three-year senior cycle in Our Lady’s. It is designed to act as a bridge between the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate programmes.
The Aim of Transition Year
- To provide a transition between Junior and Senior Cycle and to lay the foundations for further study
- To introduce a new range of experiences beyond the scope of the traditional curriculum
- To encourage initiative, self-reliance and responsibility
Transition Year is a vibrant and creative programme which offers our students an opportunity to grow, develop and mature in a number of ways. Academic progress is maintained through well defined and delivered core subjects as well as through a variety of non-conventional alternative modules. The creative and physical aspects of the programme give students the chance to explore and develop skills outside the normal academic subjects, whilst our extra curricular activities also let students engage with social issues, both locally and nationally.
