Junior Cycle

16-February-17

Our Junior Cycle Programme

Junior Cycle students in Ballymakenny College complete up to ten subjects at Junior Cycle level.

All students study the following core subjects:

  • English, Irish, Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, Modern Foreign Language, SPHE, CSPE, Ethical Education.

All students in First Year undertake a "Taster" option of six optional subjects in their first term. Students then select 2 Optional subjects to continue studying:

  • Music, Technology, Technical Graphics, Home Economics, Art, Business Studies.

At the end of the Taster Options students complete a Subject Options form with their parent(s)/guardian and choose their subjects in order of preference. Students often decide to pick a subject because their friend has chosen the same subject. We would prefer if students pick the subject that they enjoy and participate most effectively in.

*While every effort will be made to facilitate students in their choice of subject, your child's first preference cannot be guaranteed.
