The new Junior Cycle features newly developed subjects and short courses, a focus on key skills, and new approaches to assessment and reporting. The Junior Cycle (1st - 3rd years) has been in reform since 2016 with all subjects being on stream at the start of the 2019-2020 academic year. The new Junior Cycle aims to have an inclusive and relevant education programme with improved learning experiences for all students, including those with special educational needs.
Adamstown Community College aims to provide our students with a broad range of experiences in their Junior Cycle that enriches their holistic learning. Students in first year will study the core subjects; English, Mathematics, Irish, Geography, History, CSPE, SPHE, PE, Ethics+Philosophy, Science, Spanish/French and Computer studies. They will also choose three additional option subjects from a range of subjects.
