DES Inspection of Transition Year 2016

A Transition Year inspection was carried out by the Department of Education and Skills in Manor House in March 2016. The resulting report is excellent. The main findings include the following:

  • The quality of teaching and learning was very good overall with some excellent practice observed.

  • High levels of student co-operation and engagement were a feature of all of the lessons and students demonstrated very good confidence in speaking in public.

  • The excellent work of the Transition Year (TY) co-ordinator, with the full co-operation of the TY year head, teachers and whole-school support, has contributed greatly to the success of programme in the school.

  • Communication between the TY team and the wider school community is very good.
