Get the edge with Leaving Cert Extra Subjects from Ashfield College

Every year, students maximise their Leaving Certificate potential by choosing to study an Extra Leaving Cert Subject/ ‘Out of School Subject’ with us in Ashfield College.

Our Extra Leaving Cert Subjects/ ‘Out of School Subjects’ are specifically designed for students to take up an extra subject which is not available in their own school.

Studying an Extra Subject/ ‘Out of School Subject’ allows students, external to Ashfield College, to reap all the benefits of the Ashfield College’s educational experience in a subject that complements their existing Leaving Certificate studies.

It allows students to maximise their potential CAO points yield at the end of the year.  Our Leaving Cert Extra Subjects programmes cover the entire syllabus in just one year and are suitable for both 5th and 6th year students looking to boost their performance in the Leaving Certificate exams.  We also assist and support students in relevant project preparation.

Extra subjects are scheduled at times that optimise a balance between classroom time, study time and project work for students.

Subjects in this category are:

  • Design & Communications Graphics (DCG)
  • Agricultural Science
  • Business
  • 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.

All Extra Subjects/ ‘Out of School’ Subjects classes will commence week beginning 13th September 2021.

What is the difference between Grinds and Extra Subjects in Ashfield College? Which should I choose?

Parents and students should note the essential difference between taking Grinds in Ashfield College versus taking an Extra Subject in Ashfield College.

Our Grinds programme is designed to complement work already being done by the student’s own teacher in their own school; it presupposes that a student already has a teacher in another school. As such, grinds can be considered as a ‘top up’.

Extra Subject/ ‘Out of School Subjects’ are for students who do not have a teacher teaching them the subject in their own school. As such, our teachers cover the entire syllabus with the student in the one year.

All Extra Subjects/ ‘Out of School’ Subjects classes will commence week beginning 13th September 2021.
