Subject Options for First Years going into Second Year


It is important that you take great care in expressing your preferences. Every effort will be made to assign students as many of their top preferences as possible. All students take:

Subjects for examination (6)
• Irish
• English
• Maths
• History
• Geography
• Religion

• S.P.H.E.
• P.E.
• C.S.P.E.

Optional Subjects for examination (4)
• Students select 4 optional subjects – see below.

We STRONGLY recommend that every student study a Modern Language (French / German). Therefore, please indicate either French or German as your child’s first preference. If your child does not wish to study either French or German a letter must be written stating their rationale and given to our Guidance Counsellor – Mr. K Clarke.

Please follow the online guide below and indicate FIVE subjects of your choice in order of preference -1 being your first choice and 5 your reserve choice. Please ensure the preferences chosen are subjects that your daughter is currently studying.

Business Studies
Home Economics
