The Leaving Certificate is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering some specialisation towards a particular career option. Students following the Leaving Certificate programme are required to study at least seven subjects, three of which must be Irish (unless an exemption applies), maths and English. All subjects are offered at two levels, ordinary and higher. Irish and Mathematics are available at foundation level also.
At Woodbrook College our students are stimulated by their educational surroundings to become confident, independent learners. We offer a wide-ranging and balanced curriculum, preparing our students for life in the 21st Century.
This is an exciting time in education. We have a clear vision of the environment we are creating. Our students are always at the core of our plans.
We offer our students a wide range of subjects at Leaving Certificate level. All students will study their three core subjects: English, Irish, and Maths. In addition to this, students will choose four option subjects. The optional subjects on offer are:
