The Governing Body and staff at St Patrick’s ensure that Christ is at the centre of our learning, and integrate the Gospel values and virtues into everything that we do.

Estyn in June 2022 recognised:

‘Pupils enjoy their time at the school very much. This is because they have positive relationships with their teachers and other staff, which help support a vibrant atmosphere around the school.’

‘The staff ensure that a caring and inclusive atmosphere pervades school life, and they embrace the school’s vision statement, ‘Together We are One’. This has a positive impact on pupils’ attitudes to learning, their care for each other and their behaviour.’

Section 50 in March 2023 recognised:

‘St. Patrick’s is an attractive, welcoming and distinctively Catholic school that celebrates the dignity of every community member and inspires prayer and reflection. School leaders ensure the mission statement is at the heart of school life. It is lived through the dedication of the staff, governors, clergy, pupils and the wider school community.’
