Errigal College offers a wide range of Leaving Certificate subjects all at Higher and Ordinary level. Students complete a number of subject surveys prior to Leaving Certificate Year 1. Parents and students are invited to a Senior Cycle Options Information Evening where College staff outline and present all necessary and relevant information on all Senior Cycle options.
Career Guidance staff advises students on subjects which are necessary for certain courses at third level and students select four optional subjects in addition to English, Irish and Maths. Based on the subjects chosen the timetable and final choices are put together with the objective of giving as many students as possible the greatest number of their chosen subjects. Subjects run depending on numbers interested and this number varies according to available staff allocation and other resources.
The following subjects are available at the College: Geography, History, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Agricultural Science, HE, Business, Accounting, DCG, Architectural Technology, Engineering Technology, Construction Studies, Art, Music, French, and German. (Classes only run if there is sufficient numbers to allow this to happen).
In addition, students take PE, RE, SPHE and Career Guidance as important but non exam subjects.
