Welcome to St Patrick’s Catholic College.
St Patrick's Catholic College is a truly Catholic school where Christ is at the foundation of all that we do. The College's Mission statement: 'Seek Ye first the Kingdom of God' invites all members of our community to respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ, understanding that through Him, we can have fullness of life.
"I have come in order that you might have life&mdashlife in all its fullness." John 10:10
The fact that we are a relatively small Catholic secondary school with high academic standards and a family atmosphere makes us special. Our success is firmly rooted in strong, supportive relationships between pupils, staff and parents based on mutual respect and high aspirations. This is a place where all students and staff are valued and respected as unique individuals.
As a Church school, our main aim is to develop in each child, a love of God and neighbour, and to develop an understanding of their own unique origin and destiny as children of God. We do this by striving to develop everybody's talents and potential to the fullest and by treating everyone, both in school and the wider community with care and respect.
In St. Patrick's all students will have the opportunity to develop spiritually and holistically. They have the opportunity to be taught to a level that suits their ability and enables them to achieve their own personal goals.

At St Patrick's Catholic College our aim is to provide a high quality education based upon the teachings of Christ; where all pupils are valued members of our community and able to develop their talents to the full.
True Catholic education is concerned with academic success and is also about helping young people to grow and appreciate their worth and value. It is our responsibility to help pupils realise their dignity and discover their purpose.
We acknowledge that each person is a unique individual and strive to respect each individual irrespective of circumstance, gender, race or creed. We will encourage everyone to develop their unique personality and educate the whole person within a loving and caring Christian environment. To this end we will promote a happy and caring environment within which each individual can develop their potential to the full.
We will develop a culture of high expectation and high achievement; working to achieve this through a varied and stimulating learning environment rich in opportunity. This is delivered through a curriculum that is relevant to the needs of our pupils and also considers local and national agendas, thus preparing them for life beyond St Patrick's.
We also work to establish and maintain close links with the home and the parish; as well as working in partnership with and offering support to organisations and groups in the wider community.
We are a welcoming school, with honest and open communication, that works in co-operation with our parents and carers in an atmosphere of mutual respect and friendship.
