Message from Headteacher – Alison Byrne
Welcome to St Patrick’s RC High School. I am proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of such a dynamic, high-achieving and forward-thinking school that puts Jesus Christ at the heart of everything we do.
We are guided in our work by our strong Catholic ethos, based on the Gospel Values, which drives us to be the very best we can be, using our God-given talents and gifts.
It is our mission to ensure that children experience a truly great Catholic education that enables them to flourish academically and shine personally, preparing them for a happy and successful adult life.
Our school motto is, ‘amazing things happen here’ and you only have to spend five minutes in our school to realise that this is absolutely true. We have a strong and dedicated team of professionals who challenge and support students to achieve amazing things and they work hard to create an environment, built on mutual respect, whereby students rise to the challenges set for them.
Not only do our team work hard to ensure students achieve great academic standards, they are also fully committed to providing educational and extra-curricular experiences that support our students’ personal and social development.
Because of all the amazing things here on offer at St Patrick’s, we find that our students are mature, hard-working and happy to offer service to those less fortunate than themselves. Their conduct, high standards and caring attitudes make us incredibly proud. With a strong academic and moral education behind them, supported by our parents and carers, we find our students go on to achieve great things. Working together, we can ensure that they grow to live a happy and fulfilled life, rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
