Successful Full-Time Day School Alumni

We pride ourselves on helping our students choose the best route to realise their ambitions. This involves careful subject choice, study planning, and guidance while choosing their university course.  A very high percentage of our graduates get directly into the course of their choice. We are Ireland’s number one feeder school for this reason.

Wide & Unrestricted Subject Choice

Ashfield College’s Leaving Certificate teaching programme offers a choice of 24 subjects at Higher and Ordinary level.

Unlike many other post primary schools, timetables are designed to suit each student. This means that subject choices are unrestricted; each student is able to study the ideal combination of subjects to suit their individual needs.

Supervised Study

Supervised, structured sessions in our Study Hall are incorporated daily in each student’s timetable. This means that our students start working on their homework whilst in the school building and with access to teachers to help them answer their homework related questions.

Ashfield College’s Study Hall is continuously supervised which allows a completely distraction-free environment for our students

Continuous Assessment & Examinations

Ashfield College students will engage in a number of assessments at key points in the school year. In Ashfield College, we treat assessment as an important formative feedback mechanism as it informs students, parents and teachers on how a student is progressing in a subject, As we provide extensive feedback, assessment is also used to provide detailed guidance as to how a student can improve in each subject area. Our teachers provide detailed, specific, actionable feedback, and reports are issued for parents after each set of assessments. As we prepare students for the Leaving Cert, in Ashfield, we encourage our students, not to consider assessments as something to be scared of but rather, as incremental steps along a journey of progress as they prepare to sit their Leaving Cert. State Exams. This helps us to create happy, empower students who work consistently towards success.

Student Guidance
& Well-being

In Ashfield College, our students are at the heart of everything that we do. We strive to ensure all students are happy and consider themselves as valued members of the Ashfield school community.

Therefore, we provide an extensive range of both pastoral and academic supports, because it is our belief that a student needs to be happy within themselves in order for them to fully exploit the wonderful range of academic supports which we provide.

Our in house Support Team includes one-on-one meetings with our Year Heads, our Pastoral Counsellor, our Career Guidance Counsellor and our Study Mentor. Our Support Team provides support and guidance throughout the year with an emphasis on student well-being. Throughout the academic year we also have talks, seminars, and well-being initiatives for students, including our Well-Being Month.

Extra Subjects/‘Out of School’ Subjects

Students who do not attend our Day School may join us to study an ‘Out of School’ subject with us. This option allows external students the opportunity to study a subject which is not currently available in their own school.

The extra subject allows students the opportunity to study a subject which holds particular interest for them and, furthermore, offers valuable options when it comes to CAO points.

Subjects in this category include: Design & Communications Graphics, Agricultural Science, Home Economics, Applied Maths and Classical Studies.

The entire syllabus is completed in one year. 

These classes are scheduled after the usual school day, (typically from 5 p.m. onwards), thereby allowing students to join us from their own school. Classes are held two evenings a week.
