We are a Catholic School. Everything that happens here is informed by Gospel Values and the teachings of Jesus.
We are a loving community, where all are treated with respect, where a commitment to justice underpins all that we do and teach, and where the presence of God is reflected in our daily routine.
Our Lady & St Patrick's provides an outstanding education, based on the values of living life through Christ. The shared dedication of our wonderful staff team is an essential factor in maintaining our excellent standards; we want our pupils to learn, to grow and to be inspired by Gospel values, so that they can reflect God's love in their everyday lives.
Our Parish Priest is Father Paul Dadson, who plays an active role in our school.
Our school has its own distinctive mission statement which expresses our shared sense of purpose:
"At our Lady & St Patrick's, we recognise Christ in everyone as we grow together in faith and love, to serve our community"
Fundamental to this purpose is the belief that every person is made in the image and likeness of God, and finds fulfilment in God.
Our mission is to seek the ongoing development of every pupil and young person, and to promote their well-being and freedom. This vision shapes the daily life of our Catholic school as a community in which faith is expressed and shared through everything we do.
