Leaving Cert 2020

 Fri, 8th May, 2020

Dear Students and Parents,

The information that issued from the DES today regarding Leaving Cert 2020 can be found here:


We have a staff meeting scheduled for Monday afternoon to discuss all that is involved for our Leaving Cert students in Ardgillan. We will provide further information to 6th year students and parents by the end of next week.

The government have also just published a dedicated page for 6th Years with all the relevant, up to date information and FACTUAL information. If you have any questions I recommend to search for the answer here:


Our 6th Year Graduation will take place on Thursday 28th May and we will be inviting our students in to the school for one last time (times and dates for each individual student to be confirmed to ensure we are complying with HSE guidelines on social distancing measures) when we will present them with a goodie bag to say congratulations and to wish them well from all the staff in Ardgillan College.

We hope that today’s announcement gives some certainty and peace of mind to our students and we commend you on how hard you have worked during your time in Ardgillan and the strength of character and resilience you have shown, particularly in recent weeks. Teamwork, Respect and Excellence were very much in evidence in our school community of late. Please know that we are very proud of you all!

Le meas,

Nuala Ní Mhurchú
