About St Patrick's

St. Patrick's RC Comprehensive is a popular,oversubscribed school for boys and girls aged 11 to 16 that largely serves the communities of Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick. It is a small school with 569 pupils on roll and an annual intake of four forms. Numbers have increased since the last inspection. The intake is drawn in the main from three local Catholic primary schools. There are almost equal numbers of boys and girls overall but many more girls than boys in the current Year 11.
Inner Playground
Though the percentage of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals (18%) is average, they come from a wide range of social backgrounds. The percentage of pupils identified as having special educational needs (SEN) is average (22%) and those with statements of SEN (1.2%) is below average. Almost all pupils are from white British backgrounds. There are only two pupils who speak English as an additional language.
Attainment on entry is improving and currently is above average overall with a large proportion of high attaining pupils. The school is a member of the Thornaby Education Action Zone (a mini-EAZ) and receives additional funding from the Excellence in Cities (EiC) initiative.

Our Mission Statement

True Catholic education is not only concerned only with academic potential, but it is also concerned with helping pupils to grow to appreciate their worth and value. It is the task of the teachers to help pupils to realise their dignity, discover their purpose and reach their full potential.

Each individual is unique and equal to others regardless of nationality, colour, sex, creed, class, wealth or intellectual ability. The school aims to encourage everyone with their unique personality - with its particular strengths and weaknesses i.e. to educate the whole person within a loving and caring Christian environment.

St. Patrick's School aims to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at school and in society. It also aims to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experience of adult life.

Prayer and liturgical life is central to the school's existence and enhances the evangelical work done in school. This nurturing of faith supports opportunities for each person to give witness to the peace, harmony, justice and love of the Gospel.

The size of St. Patrick's School enables both staff and pupils to be acknowledged as valuable individuals and to worship as one community. The relationship between the school and the three parishes adds another positive dimension to the support provided to both staff and pupils at the school. We aim to help everyone find his or her happiness and fulfilment by living a full Christian life.

All people are formed, sustained and affirmed through the process of relating to others. One of the hallmarks of St. Patrick's School is the care and concern, the love and respect that are shown to the disadvantaged, disruptive or difficult pupils. No child in our school can be written off or dismissed. - John. Chapter 15 v 12. "Love one another as I have loved you."

A Catholic School carries the moral obligation of example and witness in its contacts within and outside of the school. The Catholic Ethos of St. Patrick's School is created and kept by the standards of discipline, courtesy, relationships, morality, Catholic practices and Christian attitudes visible in the community of the school.

The school aims to assist pupils to:

Develop their full potential

Encourage everyone with his or her unique personality

Prepare for adult life

Nurture Gospel values

Live a full Christian Life
