Teaching and learning are at the core of what we do in our school. We are innovative and progressive, offering a comprehensive range of subjects and programmes. Junior Cycle, Junior Certificate Schools Programme, Transition Year, Leaving Certificate Applied, Leaving Certificate and Adult Education programmes are all available in our school. We embrace progress, working closely with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment as a framework school for the new Junior Certificate (JCSA). Modern teaching methods are explored in the school through our close relationship with a number of 3rd level Universities. Teachers are encouraged to explore active teaching methodologies and almost half of our teaching staff have participated in the Instructional leadership programme and Active teaching methodology workshops. We were the first pilot school in Mayo for the Droichead Programme which puts us at the leading edge in assisting and developing newly qualified teachers. We are currently one of a small number of schools involved in the review of the Leaving Certificate with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment.
The school provides study time of two hours each evening from 4.15 – 6.15pm, Monday to Thursday, 2-4pm on Friday. There is a study room available in the mornings for students who arrive early to school.
