Leaving Certificate Programme


Students at senior cycle study complete the Leaving Certificate Programme. The Leaving Certificate is a two-year programme that aims to provide learners with a broad, balanced education while also offering some specialisation towards a particular career option. Students generally take seven examinable subjects and also engage in a variety of other subjects to aid their wellbeing and social development.

At senior cycle we are proud to offer a wide range of subjects for certification:

Subjects are normally studied at either Ordinary or Higher Level. Two subjects, Irish and Mathematics, can be studied at Foundation Level. Foundation Level is geared to the needs of students who might have difficulty with those subjects at Ordinary or Higher Level..

Students at Coláiste Iognáid study English, Irish and Mathematics and a foreign language ( French /German) and choose 4 subjects from the following:

  • Geography
  • History
  • Accounting
  • Business
  • Economics
  • Biology
