Transition Year

Transition Year

The Transition Year programme - which is compulsory at Cabinteely Community School - is designed to consolidate the work of the Junior Cycle so that students are better fitted to undertake the two-year Leaving Certificate and maximise their results.

The programme also provides courses and activities which would not normally form part of the Leaving Certificate programme. These are expected to provide a broader range of experience for the students and a greater understanding of their future needs.

All students in the programme take:

  • Irish
  • Mathematics
  • English
  • History
  • Geography
  • Religious Education
  • Physical Education
  • Computer Studies
  • Personal Development (SPHE)
  • Film Studies
  • Careers
  • Tourism

Other course modules include:

  • Business Studies
  • Art
  • Home Economics
  • Woodwork
  • Metalwork
  • CAD (Computer Aided Design)
  • Technical Drawing
  • Leisure and Recreation
  • Music
  • Drama
  • French
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

Research assignments and project work are an important part of the programme.

Each student undertakes two weeks of work experience during the year. This is an essential and integral part of the programme.

The supply of text books and essential materials is organised by the parents.To meet the cost of this programme each student is required to pay a fee. Day-to-day stationery and writing materials are the responsibility of the student. Other costs may be involved from time-to-time for transport to "out of school activities".
