Transition Year

At Castlepollard Community College we have an extensive programme for our students with a breadth and depth to ensure our students are given the best opportunity to flourish. We review our programme annually and our students are central to this process.

Civic Virtue is important to us, and our students play an active role in the wider community throughout Transition Year in order to serve others and support the common welfare of the community.
