Arrangements for September 2020 are as follows:–
Year 1 of Junior Cycle: Enrolment for the academic year 2020 – 2021 took place in conjunction with our open evening on the 6th of November , 2019. If you wish to submit a late application to enrol your son/daughter in Bridgetown College for September 2020, please download a copy of the Application Form and include the following documentation. A copy of your child’s Birth Certificate and their PPS number. A copy of psychological reports, where they exist, should also be submitted.
Enrolment inquiries which relate to subsequent years or programmes should be directed to Ms. Anne Carroll, Deputy Principal. Telephone: (053) 913 52 57.
Students enrolling in First Year are required to complete a number of assessment tests. These are standardised tests in literacy, numeracy and cognitive abilities. The assessment session lasts approximately two hours. No special preparation is required. Very full explanations and instructions are given before each test.
Information gleaned from the tests is used to determine whether a student will need some extra supports in certain areas. They do not determine what class a student will be placed in.
This year’s Assessment Tests were scheduled to take place sometime at the end of March and start of April. At this stage we do not know when they will take place but please do not worry. They will not affect our organisations for September. They usually take place in the evening after school and parents will be notified in advance of when their son/daughters test is scheduled. Students should bring earphones if they have them. If not, we will provide them.
The School Transport Scheme is run by Bus Éireann. Application forms are available online at www.buseireann.ie and must be submitted before the last Friday in April. Children are eligible for transport where they reside not less than 4.8 kilometres from the school they will be attending. N.B. It is assumed that students will be attending their nearest post-primary school/education centre. Full details of the Post Primary School Transport Scheme are available on the Department’s website at www.education.ie. Parents are reminded that failure to apply in time may result in a student not having a bus ticket in September.
