The Junior Certificate Schools Programme
The JCSP is the first taste of examination research and project work for our first and second years. The JCSP prepares our youngest students, through the invaluable and entertaining projects, like the Make A Book Project, as well as through the discipline of achieving a range of JCSP Statement, for the Junior Certificate examinations that most will sit in 3rd year.
Junior Cycle
This is a new programme. Scoil Bernadette has embraced this course for our first, second and third year students.

"the new junior cycle will feature newly developed subjects and short courses, a focus on literacy, numeracy and key skills, and new approaches of assessment and reporting"
Junior Certificate
Exams are available for participation however there have been huge changes in recent years. We are assessing the impacts of these changes on our students' ability to complete these courses in addition to the Junior cycle.
