The Maths department at CBC is made up of very conscientious, professional, dedicated and hardworking teachers that fully embrace the challenges posed by of the new Project Maths syllabus. We sincerely want every student to be successful at Maths no matter what level they wish to take up. Every student is encouraged and gets every opportunity to do Junior Cert higher level Maths. We encourage students with an honour in Junior Cert higher level to study higher level for Leaving Cert.
With the introduction of Project Maths exams, there has been a significant drop in A grades in both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert Maths nationally.

However in CBC, we have reversed this trend and increased the number of top grades!
