Transition Year

Transition year offers students a broad educational experience with a view to the attainment of increased maturity before proceeding to further study. Students will be actively involved in new methods of learning based on work both in and outside the classroom. They will be taught to think for themselves and develop problem solving skills, two of the key goals of the transition year programme. Transition year will commence in Mountmellick Community School in September 2015.
