School Curriculum

The Curriculum available at St. Fergal’s is based on the syllabus of the Department of Education and Science. It provides an excellent range of subjects at all levels in the Junior Certificate & Leaving Certificate. Success in State Examinations is rated highly and its importance is demonstrated in the teaching and learning methodologies practised in the school.  These methodologies have been highly commended in Inspection Reports by the Department of Education & Science.
