Senior Cycle

Loreto Secondary School, Balbriggan is one of 40 schools collaborating with the NCCA on a review of the Senior Cycle Curriculum in Irish schools.

This collaboration features two consultative cycles of thematic discussions about senior cycle education with the NCCA. The first cycle will focus on the purpose of Senior Cycle and thinking about the future, while the second cycle will explore pathways and flexibilities in Senior Cycle. Each cycle will begin as a school-based discussion, but will then widen out to conclude with a national seminar involving representatives from the collaborating schools and the education partners. A summary report of the main findings of each cycle will be produced and published after each national seminar. More info ...
