Hello and Welcome to St Patrick’s College
I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. It will give you an insight into what the
College provides for its pupils and a glimpse into the strong and vibrant school community
which flourishes here.

St Patrick’s is an all ability, inclusive school which was opened in 1958 to serve the boys and girls
of the greater Banbridge area. We are a Catholic school where our pupils are encouraged to
participate fully in the Religious Education programme and practice of the school. We warmly
welcome students from other faith groups and value the richness and breadth they bring to our
school community.

At St Patrick’s we strive for excellence. We have high expectations for all pupils, not only in terms
of their school work and homework, but also in their personal appearance and conduct. We
encourage them to be the best that they can be. We work in partnership with parents, carers and the wider school community to ensure every child is fully supported to achieve their true potential,

Our curriculum provision has grown rapidly and we are well equipped to ensure that our pupils
access the full N.I. curriculum at Key Stage three and Key Stage Four. We offer a broad and relevant post-16 curriculum in collaboration with other schools in the Banbridge Area Learning Community. We provide a comprehensive careers programme for pupils at Key Stage 4 and at post-16 so that our pupils are well informed to make appropriate choices about career pathways.

I invite you to peruse our website to see what we have to offer.
