Welcome to Our Lady and

 St. Patrick's High School

Welcome from Our Head Teacher

As your Head Teacher I am delighted to welcome you to the Our Lady and St Patrick’s High School website.

The site has recently been re-designed and we hope that you like the new layout and more importantly find it easier to access.

As you can see from the menus the site offers you a wide range of information about life here in the school. We do our very best to ensure that the material on the site is always current and we are continuing to develop the range of information provided.

Practical advice like important dates in the school calendar and details of our school uniform is always available for quick reference. We will continue to populate the site with important information that we continue to send home to parents/carers.

Information is provided on curricular areas and the programmes of study they offer as well as providing links to homework materials that can be accessed online rather than depending on paper copies. 

Information on extra-curricular activities and on the important work done by our Parent Council is available. You can also access useful links to other educational websites.

We regard our website as a key aspect of our partnership with pupils, parents/carers and the local community and we are determined that it will make an important contribution to the high quality educational experience we offer at Our Lady and St Patrick’s.

Please enjoy the site and we would welcome any comments or suggestions as to how we can make it even better.

The website is best viewed using the GOOGLE CHROME web browser.
