Mount Anville Secondary School

Junior Certificate

Entrance Assessment and Formation of Class

All students who have been offered a place will be assessed in the February prior to entry. There are four mixed ability classes in each Year; A, B, C, D. This assessment is not an examination in the competitive sense; it is merely to help to arrange the students in classes of mixed ability and to identify any student who may need extra help.

In Second Year students will be set in Higher or Ordinary Level Irish and Mathematics classes on the basis of

  • Teacher's assessment
  • Tests during First Year
Balance
  • Development of moral and spiritual growth through Religious Education.
  • Development of emotional and social growth through Social, Personal and Health Education.
  • Development of physical growth through Physical Education.
  • Development of artistic growth through Speech and Drama, Choir and Art.
  • Development of a critical sense throughout.

It is recommended that all students study a modern language in the interest of balance and career options.

Content

The following subjects are compulsory for all students: RE, PE, Irish, English, Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, CSPE (Civic, Social & Political Education), Choir, Keyboard skills, and Latin.

However, in certain cases an exemption from Irish may be obtained from the Department of Education and Science.

Students choose two further subjects from the list below:

  • Art
  • Business Studies
  • French
  • German
  • Home Economics
  • Music
  • Spanish

When the number of students electing for one of the above choices is low, the Board of Management reserves the right to cancel the option.

The syllabus for each subject is prescribed by the Department of Education and Science.
