EXCELLING IN TEACHING AND LEARNING

The Edmund Rice School is a community of people dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in all its endeavours and in all aspects of its teaching and learning.

Tralee CBS takes a broad view of education and believes that success in education is measured by much more than results in the State Examinations; nonetheless it strives for academic excellence. The School has an excellent record in the State Examinations, with the vast majority of its students going on to University and third level colleges.

All junior cycle students study subjects leading to the Junior Certificate, the State Examination, taken at the end of third year. While a majority of subjects are assessed as part of the Junior Certificate Examination, the junior cycle provision also includes a number of subjects that are integral to the curriculum, but are not formally assessed in this way. The inclusion of these subjects in the curriculum ensures that students receive a broad, balanced education that introduces them to all the areas of experience relevant to the needs of learners at this age and stage of their development.

Non-examination subjects at junior cycle include Physical Education, Social, Personal and Health Education and Computer Studies.
