Irish is a compulsory subject at Leaving Certificate Level.

Here at Hewitt College, students have regular one-to-one oral classes with members of the Irish department so that they can maximise their potential in the Oral Examination, worth a massive 40%. As well as course work classes, they also have weekly aural classes. Our 6th year teacher, Ms Elaine Hammond, is an experienced State Examination corrector and Oral Examination Examiner. Written work is regularly assigned, corrected and returned.

At Hewitt College, we are finalising our roadmap to safely guide our students on their Leaving Certificate journey.

For the coming academic year, no external student will be admitted to Hewitt College during term time.

– Supervised Study: These facilities are only available to full-time Hewitt College students.

– Grinds | Extra Subject: Will not be available on campus. We are currently organising our online grinds | extra subject programme.

We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment. However, our priority must be, as always, our full-time students. We have taken these measures to ensure their safety and continuity of learning.
