Principal's Welcome

At St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s College we are proud of the foundations we build together for our young people. Our pupils are keen learners, talented sports people, accomplished musicians and artists and thoughtful, caring and considerate young citizens.

St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s College is an excellent school. We are a school which develops the whole child, academically, socially, morally and spiritually, to enable each to make informed choices as they travel on their personal journeys.

A good school is not made of bricks and mortar, but made of the people who work together, caring, supporting and encouraging each child to fulfil their potential. The quality of the teachers, classroom assistants, support and secretarial staff, in our college are second to none and I am certain that this has positively impacted on the lives of our young people.

In St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s College we work in partnership with pupils, parents, governors and the local community to ensure a positive learning experience for every child. We are fully committed to continuing to develop and strengthen relationship with all stakeholders.

As Principal of St Patrick’s & St Brigid’s College I continue to be deeply impressed by our pupils’ attitude to their studies,  commitment to learning and by the way they conduct themselves as they go about their daily business. Observing our pupils at work in the classrooms is always heart-warming and encouraging. Seeing pupils actively and enthusiastically engage in and take responsibility for their learning has confirmed my belief in our future and the future for our pupils. Their continued hard work and endeavour will ensure that they progress and develop and will secure each and every one of them a very bright future.

We are incredibly proud of the achievements of our young people. They have shaped this school and have built for it an outstanding reputation locally and nationally; providing a quality education for children from all backgrounds, denominations and communities.

Please take the time to visit us, here in Claudy to sample a warm, welcoming, inclusive, family environment and to get a feel for our school, where we firmly believe that, ‘Believers are Achievers’.
