Excellence in learning and teaching is the core purpose of St. Patrick’s Grammar School. Our continued success is due to our ability to provide a modern, broad, balanced, relevant and enjoyable curriculum for our pupils within the statutory regulations. Pupils are imbued with the skills, dispositions and values that will lead to success both at school and in their adult life.
As a high performing self-evaluating school, St Patrick’s Grammar continually reviews its provision, mindful of the changing needs of society and the needs of individuals within the school community. An excellent curriculum is supported by an outstanding Pastoral Care system and numerous opportunities for involvement in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Diagnostic assessment of pupil progress is central to our continued success.
There are four internal assessments during each academic year which are reported to parents and opportunities for teacher-parent consultation, both formal and informal, are provided throughout the year. In addition to the one formal written report and Parent Teacher Meeting, the school maintains regular contact with the home to ensure effective communication and sharing of information.
