The boys begin a three year course of study as laid out by the Department of Education and Science. The school provides a broad and balanced course of study in a range of curricular areas. The examination subjects include English, Irish, Mathematics, French, German, Science, Business Studies, History, Geography, Technical Graphics, Art, Music, C.S.P.E and Religious Education. Digital Media, S.P.H.E and Physical Education are also important parts of the curriculum.
