Leaving Certificate 2021- The Next Steps


Congratulations to all our Leaving Cert students on their excellent examination results.

This group of students have faced an unprecedented set of challenges over the course of their Leaving Cycle, including two lock downs, resulting in 16 weeks of online classes.

The uncertainty over the exact format their examinations would take, also dominated their final year in post primary school.  These issues, along with the social challenges of the Covid restrictions, presented unique set of challenges for these students.  However they rose the challenge and depart from us as young men who we are very proud of.

 There are a number of key dates coming up, where students have the opportunity to view their scripts and appeal their grades. These and CAO offer dates are listed below

 Also attached is a Candidate Information Guide to the Accredited Grades Process - Data Collection, National Standardisation & Quality Assurance Processes
