Teaching & Learning

Curriculum:
In Coláiste Choilm we provide a comprehensive range of subjects to all levels. The range of optional subjects in both the junior cycle and senior cycle is based on student preferences. In mid-August each year we celebrate the academic achievements of all students as the vast majority move on to third level education. In the most recent statistics, the school has a transfer ratio of 97% to third level. Coláiste Choilm is the top feeder school to UCC and to CIT.
Teaching & Learning:
“Teaching and Learning is of the highest quality” – Whole School Evaluation Report 2014. Coláiste Choilm has no selective entry policy and hence caters for a wide range of abilities and backgrounds. The curriculum is designed to ensure that the academic progress of every student is nurtured. Classes are organised on a mixed ability basis within two bands in Junior Cycle. All students have access to higher subject levels.
