Transition Year & 5th Year Programs
Transition Year ‘Get Ahead’ and 5th Year subjects are run together. This allows TY students get a head start on some of their subjects to help the focus on their core strengths for the Leaving Certificate program. One of the biggest criticisms of the TY program is that parents are concerned that students fall out of studying habits. This program allows them a narrow focus on a few subjects they want to improve from Junior Certificate or chase points for the Leaving Certificate.
It follows the 5th year syllabus for the following subjects: Maths Higher, Maths Ordinary, English Higher, Irish Higher, Spanish Higher, French Higher, German Higher, History Higher, Geography Higher, Chemistry Higher, Physics Higher, Accounting Higher and Economics Higher as the core subjects depending on numbers some may be combined with 6th Year classes. For languages there will be a heavy focus on the oral part of the course as it is such a main percentage of the leaving certificate paper.
One of the main focuses of the Navan Grinds Academy is to help students study effectively. Understanding that each student is unique and there are many different ways of studying and working on study techniques and revision schedules. It is an important process to learn as early as possible in second level.
