Junior Certificate Programme

In September, 1st Year students set out on a programme of studies which prepares them for the Junior Certificate Examination which comes at the end of their 3rd Year.

Some subjects are core subjects and are taken by all students. Other subjects are optional and give the student a choice - it is important to aim at a broad range of subjects which will keep many options open later on. Non examination subjects are shown in italics.

Beech Hill College will be offering the new Junior Cycle - find out more on www.juniorcycle.ie
