It is our pleasure to welcome you to this website which will give you information and insights on many aspects of life at St Patrick's Grammar School, Armagh.

Established in 1838, the school has a long and proud history, and has seen constant growth and development down the years. Originally providing for the education of quite small numbers of students, the school now serves over 750 boys from a wide catchment area that includes all of County Armagh and parts of Tyrone, Antrim and Down.


Background of St. Patrick's

St. Patrick's Grammar School, Armagh, was officially opened on Thursday 27th October 1988 by the late Cardinal Tomas O' Fiaich, then Chairman of the Board of Governors. The new school was the result of the amalgamation of two of the province's oldest grammar schools, Christian Brothers' Grammar School and St. Patrick's College, both of which had illustrious traditions.

The School

The School The Catholic Church has received the mission of proclaiming and establishing the Kingdom of God among all peoples. The specific mission entrusted to St. Patrick's Grammar School is the Christian education of its students. It is for this purpose that the school exists. Inspired by Gospel values, St. Patrick's Grammar School:

  • gives priority to education in a living faith whereby students grow to appreciate the life and mission of Jesus Christ with a view to being committed to the world as he was;
  • has a special concern for the poor and under-privileged;
  • is challenged to develop a curriculum which promotes the harmonious growth of the whole person.
St. Patrick's Grammar School works at forming a community composed of students, teachers, parents, management and other staff. This community:
  • seeks to live by Gospel values;
  • recognises the dignity of each individual;
  • contributes to the building up of the local community;
  • works for peace and justice in society.

The Student

The Student The central purpose of the school community is the religious, moral, intellectual, physical and social education of the student. This community seeks to create the atmosphere of Christian care and concern in which the student can grow to maturity. The school is committed to:

  • respecting the dignity of the student with his background, tradition and beliefs; valuing the potential of each and encouraging the strong to support the weak
  • enabling the student to develop a healthy self-image and to form positive relationships with others;
  • encouraging in the student a sense of creativity and of collaboration with others;
  • promoting the students' appreciation of his cultural heritage;
  • preparing the student, through academic and technical training, for his vocational role in life;
  • providing opportunities for the student to experience God in the wonder of creation, in worship and in service of others;
  • developing a critical sense in the student, helping him to challenge the forces that threaten human life;
  • providing a disciplined atmosphere in which the student is encouraged to grow and to take increasing responsibility for his own education and for the life of the school community

The Parents

The Parents The primary right and obligation to educate young people belongs to their parents. In choosing a School parents subscribe to its philosophy. Parents are encouraged to exercise their right and obligation by:

  • giving the school their trust and co-operation;
  • ensuring that their children respect, obey and co-operate with the teachers;
  • supporting the varied activities of school life;
  • taking responsibility, in collaboration with others in the school community, for the quality of education and for the character of the school.
