Individual secondary school records on Schooldays.ie have been updated today (12/12/2023) to include details of the numbers of students from each school admitted to the different Universities and Institutes of Technology around Ireland in September 2023. By visiting any individual school profile on Schooldays.ie you can now view the data on college progression for the last thirteen years. The database now includes information from the following universities and colleges:
The initial figure in each year shows the number of students who sat or were awarded the leaving certificate in that year. The number of students who progressed to the different colleges/universities is then displayed followed by the total of number who went to college/university that year. It should be noted that sometimes the number who progressed to college will appear greater than the number who sat the leaving cert. This anomaly arises because in many cases the data provided from the universities/colleges also includes repeat students.
It is also important to note that the data does not include information on students who may have progressed to colleges or universities outside of the Republic of Ireland or those who many have taken up apprenticeships or PLC courses. Further notes on the data sources are available by clicking the link below the data on your school page.
Whilst on the school page, you can also view, where available, the Department of Education School Inspection Reports. Links to the available reports are displayed in the same right hand school menu. School data has also been updated to include the latest students number for the school (2022/2023) along with the latest data we have on Principal's names, school email addresses and website links - click on the 'Basics' tab for your school to view this information. If you notice any errors for your school, please email us the updated information to firstname.lastname@example.org .
