“We all need someone to inspire us to do better than we know how”.

At Ard Scoil na nDéise, we aim to provide a caring, happy environment which enables our students to reach their potential.

The school offers Junior Certificate, Transition Year and Leaving Certificate. We offer a wide range of subjects to meet the changing needs of our students.

Junior Certificate Courses

Junior Cycle

Our First Year classes are based on mixed ability. From our experience and from research, this has proven to be best practice. It gives the students a chance to settle into their new environment before they make decisions regarding subject levels and subject choices.

During their First Year in the school students take all of the subjects listed below. The only choice our students have to make before commencing First Year is whether they take German or French.

Core Examination Subjects – taken by all students.

  • Gaeilge
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • German or French
  • History
  • Geography
  • Civic, Social & Political Education (C.S.P.E.)

Optional Examination Subjects

Our students sample the following subjects in First Year. Towards the end of First Year, they make an informed decision and choose two of the following to study to Junior Certificate level.

  • Art or Music
  • Business Studies
  • Home Economics

Non Examination Subjects

We offer the following subjects to Junior Cycle students. We feel they play a huge part in ensuring a well rounded education for our students and provide them with important life skills.

  • Computer Studies
  • Elocution (First Year Students)
  • Physical Education (P.E.)
  • Religious Education
  • Social, Personal & Health Education (S.P.H.E.)
