History of St Patrick’s Grammar School
While there has been a boys’ post-primary school on Armagh’s Sandy hill
since 1838, the present St Patrick’s Grammar school was set in place in
1988 with the amalgamation of Armagh’s
two outstanding boys’ grammar schools,
two schools with long and proud histories of service and achievement,
St Patrick’s College and CBS, Greenpark.
St Patrick’s College had been established as a junior seminary
by Archbishop Crolly in 1838,
and was under the direction of priests of Armagh.
History of St Patrick’s Grammar School
In 1861 the Vincentian Order was invited to take charge of the school.
The Vincentians continued their apostolate in Armagh
until the amalgamation.
Generations of St Patrick’s students, from all over Ireland
and beyond, owe a debt of gratitude to the Vincentians
for providing an excellent all-round education.
The Irish Christian Brothers arrived in Armagh in 1851
at the invitation of Archbishop Cullen, later to be Ireland’s first Cardinal.
History of St Patrick’s Grammar School
Within a few years the Brothers acquired the Greenpark site
and established primary and post-primary schools.
Christian Brothers’ Grammar School, Greenpark,
built up a strong academic and sporting tradition for which generations of students
are grateful.
Christian Brothers remained on staff until 1999,
which was also the year that the long tradition of boarding
at St Patrick’s came to an end.

St Patrick’s Grammar School Today
From the beginning it was clear that the new St Patrick’s was going to be
a vibrant institution.
The present school now draws from over fifty different primary schools and
provides opportunities for students to meet new friends and develop their full
potential in a caring and supportive educational environment.
The school is noted for its warm, welcoming atmosphere and for the positive,
affirming relationships among students, teachers and parents.
Being a Catholic school, prayer and worship are part of school.
St Patrick’s Grammar School Today
There is an excellent record of academic success and the students achieve
top grades in public examinations across the entire range of subjects.
This success is due to the ability and commitment of the students,
the encouragement and support of their parents, and, in no small way,
to the expertise and dedication of our teachers.
The school has an excellent staff that co-operates to provide
the very best of education within the classrooms
and in a vast range of extra-curricular activities.
St Patrick’s Grammar School Today
St Patrick’s School is one of the leading schools in the country
when it comes to information and Communications Technology (ICT). Every one of
54 classrooms has an interactive whiteboard, data projector, computer
and other subject-relevant electronic equipment.
Everyone in St Patrick’s is expected to work hard, and they support each other in
an atmosphere of friendship and mutual enrichment.
They set high standards and help each other achieve them, and so, in enabling each
individual to reach his/her true potential,
they are all prepared for the challenges and opportunities of life.

Spiritual Awareness
The Religious Education Department works effectively to promote the
ethos of St Patrick’s Grammar School, that puts
the individual student at the centre of the educational experience.
At St Patrick’s, they are aware of the need for positive promotion of the
message of the church among students who, in modern times, may not have
the traditional exposure to the positive benefits of the faith.
They work as a whole-school basis in a way that will, they hope,
enrich the spiritual community of St. Patrick’s.
