St Joseph’s Mercy Secondary School


For the first three years of their schooling, our students prepare for Junior Cycle, consisting of both Classroom-Based Assessments and examinations. In their fourth year, our students have the option either to join the Transition Year programme or to continue straight into their Leaving Certificate programme.

Our students’ final two years are spent preparing for the Leaving Certificate examinations. Some of our students can also sit the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme simultaneously.

Further information about our programmes can be found in our school prospectus.
