This page will help you get a feel of what it is like to become a St. Patrick's Grammar School student. We look forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy your St. Patrick's Grammar School experience.




Moving from primary school to secondary school is an exciting time!  Everyone in St. Patrick’s is looking forward to meeting you and will help you to settle into school life.  You won’t have to wait until September to meet everyone at St. Patrick’s as our June Induction Evening will help you get to know your new Form Teacher, class mates and your way around the school. 

Below is a video showing a day as a Year 8 student: 

Our School Day begins at 8.55 with AM Registration and ends at 3.30 with PM Registration.

There are 10 classes each day including lunch.

Class times are shown on the table below:

Just ask! Year 8 students can ask any member of staff, senior students or their Form Teacher if they can't find their way.

Everyone at St.Patrick's will be happy to help.

Each Form Class meets their Form Teacher at the beginning of every school day. A Form Teacher takes registration in the morning and afternoon.

They will also inform the students of any messages for that particular day.

A Form Teacher will help students to settle in and answer all Year 8 Students queries and questions.
