2nd & 3rd Year Curriculum


Voice, Choice and Flexibility are central to our curriculum planning. Moving into second year, students will choose to specialise in certain optional subjects and will be provided with more curricular time to focus on the depth of the learning in these subjects.

*Students will carry 4 of these subjects forward, which will be chosen based off student preferences.

Core Subjects

All students study English, Gaeilge, Maths, History and Ethical Education as part of the core curriculum.


Short courses are provided in CSPE, SPHE and PE. The team in Firhouse ETSS has designed the Let's C! course that is unique to our own school. It will be based on a modular approach and more information is to be found in the Learning in Our School section.
