Scoil Chonglais Post Primary School

Transition Year

The Transition Year (TY) is a one-year programme that forms the first year of a three-year Senior Cycle. It is designed to act as a bridge between the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate Programmes. Currently approximately 75% of schools offer the programme.
Transition Year is optional for students in most schools.

Transition Year offers learners an opportunity to mature and develop without the pressure of an examination. It also provides an opportunity for learners to reflect on, and develop an appreciation of, the value of learning in preparing them for the ever-changing demands of the adult world of work, further and higher education and relationships.
