6th Year Leaving Cert Programme
This is a one year programme. Teachers start everything at the beginning and cover the entire syllabus in one year.
Our Ashfield College Virtual Open Evening is delivered by our Principal and members of the Ashfield College Team.
We are very proud of our wonderful school. Our Virtual Open Evening is a great opportunity for us to explain how and why our school is so special.
The evening is a great opportunity to find out more about our Day School and how our Application and Interview process works. We hope that you can join us!
We are currently accepting applications for our Day School for 5th Year and 6th Year 2022.

The entire exam syllabus is covered in each subject in 6th year, and students have the option to study additional subjects to maximise their CAO points.
The Ashfield College timetable combines focused tuition time and supervised study periods in a wide range of subjects.
Students have an unrivalled choice of subjects because, unlike most other schools, we build our timetable around the student. 6th Year students may choose from 24 subjects offered at Higher and Ordinary level:
Design & Communication Graphics (DC&G)
Ashfield College teachers are highly qualified subject experts. Our teachers have extensive experience preparing students for the Leaving Certificate in their chosen specialist areas.
Our teachers are passionate and responsive to each and every student. They combine a genuine love of their subjects with a proven track-record of success in second level State Examinations.
Many of our teachers are published authors of Leaving Cert text books, while others are Leaving Cert State Examiners. Several of our teachers are also involved in teacher training at a national level.
Our Ashfield College teachers teach their classes using our superb Ashfield College Manuals. These manuals are written by our teachers specifically for use in Ashfield College only. Our manuals are updated annually in order to ensure that we reflect the most current Leaving Cert exam papers.
Our manuals are professionally produced and cover the entire syllabus. Our manuals include accurate solutions to exam questions and subject-specific exam technique, all of which is vital for Leaving Cert exam success. Our manuals are not available to buy the shops and they are included in our school fees.
With extensive experience in online learning, we stream all Day School classes plus all grinds classes. All classes are also recorded, so students have an extensive back catalogue or e-library of recorded classes for the duration of their time with us in Ashfield College. We also utilise Moodle as an extra resource for students, providing a platform for sharing additional learning resources to our students. In Ashfield College, we are lucky to have a Head of I.T. and a team of Support Technicians. All of our teachers have received and continue to receive training in on to team in an online environment. We ensure that all students whether online or face to face have ample opportunity to engage and interact in all classes.
In Ashfield College, we are keen to ensure that students are supported both pastorally and academically. Below are some of the Support personnel available to all students.
6th Year students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities designed to develop new friendships, leadership skills and to promote teamwork and a sense of community. Activities 6th year students have enjoyed include careers talks from leading industry figures, 5-a-side soccer, trips to the theatre, cinema and art galleries, hiking, and ice-skating.
