We strongly encourage our students to broaden their experiences, develop new and enhance existing skills and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world.


Through our Post 16 Enrichment Programme which we dedicate 3 timetabled periods to weekly, we aim to:

  • promote the fullest possible development of the academic, cultural, physical, moral, spiritual and social dimension of each student in a fun and enjoyable manner;

  • develop integrity and self-respect in each student and foster compassion, tolerance and respect for others;

  • enable students to gain the personal skills and confidence to shape their own futures, and those of others around them, in a rapidly changing world.

Through our extensive programme, our aim is that students will leave St Patrick’s Grammar School as confident, happy and independent young adults, fully prepared for the challenges that life will provide.
