Transition Year Programme

Our transition year programme is an important feature of our school. It follows junior cycle and is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students who give everything they have got to the programme.  Students are encouraged to take part in the programme.  In Ashton it is not compulsory, but in recent years almost every student has opted for the programme.  The main aims of the transition year programme are to promote maturity and to help students to develop the learning and study skills that are required for the Leaving Certificate.  Additional aims include providing opportunity for students to identify their future educational and vocational needs before choosing their leaving certificate subjects.

Please listen to this student testimonial to hear more about the transition year programme.
