Transition Year in The Teresian School is an incredible learning experience full of personal growth and unmatched opportunities. We have been running Transition Year since 1987, refining and improving it every year based on the needs of the individual year group. Transition Year in The Teresian School is not only the best possible preparation for the Leaving Certificate, our varied curriculum and co-curricular opportunities produce well-rounded, dedicated citizens of the world.
Our curriculum offers students a wide array of scope to refine their knowledge base from the Junior Cycle and to expand their horizons in new and exciting directions. Each subject focuses on the skills necessary to excel in Senior Cycle so as to prepare our students to reach their full potential.
All students have the opportunity to sample every subject, regardless of what they took for Junior Cycle. This allows students to approach each subject with a mature mindset and to facilitate them in making their choices for the Leaving Certificate.
We also provide TY specific subjects and modules, such as Chinese Language and Culture run in tandem with the Confucius Institute in University College Dublin; I T (applications and Programming); Sports Science and specific project classes.
Assessment in each subject is project and deadline based. This approach is used in tandem with regular assignments as a method of ensuring students take ownership of their learning and to prepare them for the world of work. Students select pieces of work from throughout the year to assemble a Transition Year portfolio.
