Transition Year

Ringsend College started a 4th Year Transition Year in September 2015. The aim of the TY Programme is to give our students the benefit of an extra year to mature and develop before they take on the Leaving Certificate Programme.

Students take part in a range of core subjects including English, Irish, Maths, PE and French. There is a strong focus on academic achievement as well as a range of activities to broaden their learning experiences.

As part of the TY Year the students learn about community work, practical subjects from our Night School Programme and also enjoy a cultural trip abroad as a group.
