English Language (EL) Department

Welcome to the EL Department at St Patrick's College.
   Our focus is on providing courses for students whose first language is not English. We have small, friendly EL classes for students at all levels, from Year 9 to 13. All students are tested on entry to the department to ensure correct class placement and at various stages throughout their time at College.
