Additional Subjects

Students take on additional subjects outside of school with Kilmartin Educational Services for a number of reasons. Many students find that two subjects they hoped to take clash on their school timetable, some schools don't offer the full range of Leaving Cert subjects and some students simply wish to maximise their points!

Our experienced and highly qualified teachers will cover all the coursework, plus any additional project/practical work over either one or two years. Usually the classes will be one hour and a half in length per week. Christmas and Pre-Leaving Cert exams will also be set and the results will be posted home so that parents can monitor progress. Be advised that taking on an additional subject is not easy, particularly if you are hoping to cover the course in one year, but our teachers will guide you through the process and focus on how you can achieve the best possible grades!

Introduction to Music:

Music can be taken on as a grind or as an additional subject at KES. The Music course allows students a fantastic opportunity to maximise their exam success while also showcasing their many skills and talents in Music at Leaving Cert Level. It is advisable that all students have some prior knowledge of the Music Course offered at second level (i.e. Junior Certificate Music).

What we offer:

The tuition offered at Kilmartin Educational Services caters for the 25% listening and 25% composing element. Performance is not an option and not available at KES and students will be required to have appropriate material prepared for the practical exams themselves.

Cost and times:

The classes run for 1 ½ hours at a cost of €30. All material is covered over the 2 year course and students will receive extensive notes/handouts over the course of the 2 years.  It is imperative that all students taking Music outside of school be in attendance at all classes. If students are unable to attend they must contact me or the school at least 24 hours before the class time.
