A solid 5th year is the foundation for a successful Leaving Certificate. For this reason 5th Year students are introduced to the Leaving Certificate syllabus and the effective work practices required in the Leaving Certificate. During the 5th year, students cover 75% of the exam syllabus, which will provide an invaluable foundation for 6th Year. Students are monitored academically with regular testing and continuous assessment in all subjects.
