Senior Cycle

The fifth and sixth years at the college are spent in preparation for the second state examination Irish Leaving Certificate. The entry of students to third level education is usually based on their performance in this examination. In the senior cycle, the College policy is to have a maximum class size of 20 pupils. Thus a generous pupil teacher ratio is provided by Midleton College.

Small class sizes, within the context of a small total College pupil cohort, are a proven assistance to learning and teaching. Positive and respectful teacher pupil relationships are synonymous with the name Midleton College.

Small class groups allow an easy working environment, maximising each individuals' learning potential in a pleasant atmosphere. The aim of the College curriculum is to offer, within our resources, a broad curriculum that supports the academic and personal development of each pupil to the zenith of his/her abilities.
