Transition to a new school in Senior Cycle

Many students, both male and female, for a variety of reasons transfer to Plunket College to complete their Leaving Certificate.

Here in Plunket College we understand that moving into a new school can be a stressful time for parents and students. We do all we can to support parents, and students, during this transition period.

Open Days take place in November, February, or March. Everyone is welcome to attend. Notices of Open Days are circulated, and are also available on the college website.

New students have the opportunity to explore the college and engage in activities during Open Days. Opportunities are provided during the admissions process for students and their parents to be provided with full details of all the college offers. Information sessions are also held for parents and students. When students arrive in September they are supported by the Home School Liaison Teacher, the Guidance Counsellor, and their Class Tutor who is available to provide a high standard of pastoral care.

Catering for the Needs of All Students

As more students now remain in school to complete their Leaving Certificate we in Plunket College are aware that some students may experience difficulties coping with a large range of subjects in Senior Cycle.

Here in Plunket College we aspire to meeting the needs of these students by offering a smaller range of subjects which cater for students’ interests, and academic needs.

The aim is to ensure that all students achieve a Leaving Certificate which equips them with the necessary certification to progress to further education

Repeating may seem like the end of the world but the dedicated and hard-working teachers and staff at Plunket College make repeating less stressful.  I'd recommend it to anyone.

Denise, Repeat Leaving Certificate

"I never thought that I would go to university because of Leaving Cert points, never mind have the opportunity to study in an area (Psychology) where it is so difficult to get a place.  I owe how well I did in university in no small part to the year I spent on the Counselling & Psychology course in Plunket College; it was indispensable in getting me where I am now, a second year Psychology student in NUI Maynooth.
