Welcome to the website of St. Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh.
I trust that it will give you an initial impression of the life and work of the school and introduce you to our friendly, caring, supportive & successful educational environment.
We are a caring, child-centred school dedicated to educating our students to the highest possible standards. We strive to work as a school community to support the development of the boys. Therefore, our family links are really important to us.
Education in St. Patrick’s is wide and varied; academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development come together to foster the growth of 11 year old boys in Year 8 into young adults ready to make a positive contribution to society.
While boys are stretched academically and supported where required, we also offer a range of opportunities for students through our broad curriculum and our many extra-curricular activities. Students in St. Patrick’s will spend their days in the care of a highly qualified, well-motivated and enthusiastic staff who are always keen to work with the students. Never has this been more evident than during the current Covid-19 pandemic and periods of school closure.
I look forward to working with you in the future as parents, families and of course students.

St. Patrick’s Grammar School, Armagh, held an Open Day for P7 students and their parents recently. Visitors were welcomed on arrival to St Patrick’s by School Principal, Mr Dominic Clarke, and addressed by Niall McBride, St. Patrick’s Head Boy, and Year 8 student Ruairi Doyle, as they described their experiences in St Patrick’s. Ross Cunningham, a Year 10 student, also performed a song from our recent school production, Our Day Out. These speeches gave Primary 7 pupils and parents an impression of life in St. Patrick’s and highlighted the ability of staff to bring out the best in every student-academically, artistically and in sporting endeavours. Head Boy, Niall, summed up his experiences over the past seven years by referencing the school motto “Fratres In Unum” which translates as Brothers Together and spoke warmly of the support, friendship and academic opportunities afforded him in St. Patrick’s. Mr Clarke reinforced this by reassuring parents that “Here in St. Patrick’s your child will experience an excellent, quality, challenging education. We have the highest expectations for all students and St. Patrick’s staff work very hard to ensure that every student has the opportunities to reach their full potential.
We offer an 11-19 education – a broad, balanced curriculum that caters for all talents and abilities; challenging each boy to thrive and develop.”
Senior Prefects, Year 8 students and staff then teamed up as guides to direct the visitors around the school’s extensive facilities and to view the work of students past and present. Having viewed many of the school’s departments parents and Primary 7 students commented on the warm and friendly atmosphere of St. Patrick’s Grammar School
