Every pupil wears our school badge with the words "Críost Romham", meaning "Christ before me" - taken from our school prayer St. Patrick's Breastplate.

We are proud of St Patrick's pupils and their achievements. We want you to share in the success.

In St Patrick's we have the full age range of pupils, from 11-19 years and the full ability range, from those with learning difficulties to those who get "A" grades in Academic or Vocational "A" Levels.

St Patrick's College is a caring community where each member of staff is dedicated to achieving excellence for each pupil. It is important to us that each of our pupils is happy in our school.

We believe that it is only when our pupils are happy that they will achieve their full potential.

Joining St. Patrick's College as a pupil is an opportunity not only to get a good education but also to develop new interests, make new friends and prepare for adult life.

This website should answer many of your questions about St Patrick's College. If it does not, feel free to contact the school and we will do our best to answer your query.
