St. Mary’s Secondary School offer a wide and balanced curriculum for the Junior Cycle students. As a school we are always evaluating the subject options we offer so as to maximise the learning for the students in our care.

Currently our curriculum provision from September 2017 includes:

Core Subjects
- Irish
- English
- Maths
- Geography
- History
- Religious Education
- Social, Personal & Health Education (SPHE)
- Civic, Social & Political Education (CSPE)

Options
Students will choose an additional four subjects from the following options:

- French or German
- Business Studies
- Science
- Art, Craft & Design
- Music
- Home Economics
- Technical Graphics

Modules
Finally, students will also take an extra module in:
