Students undertaking the Transition Year Programme will untertake an intensive curriculum over the course of the academic year. This will include a 'hands on' approach in many areas. It is a vibrant and creative programme offering our students an opportunity to grow, develop and mature and prepares them to be 'future-ready.' The creative and physical aspects of the programme give students the chance to explore and develop skills outside the academic, whilst our SPHE/RE, extra curricular and social placement activities also let students engage with social issues, both local and global.
