We are a popular and vibrant school on the east side of Southampton, serving a very diverse community. We aim to develop the unique potential of all our children and staff and work hard to achieve high standards through love of learning, high-quality relationships and an inspirational curriculum.
We are a friendly, family school where everyone is welcome. We are blessed with a highly experienced and dedicated staff who work extremely hard to provide a stimulating and disciplined atmosphere, within which successful learning can take place. In the spirit of our mission statement, we aim to value and encourage all and strive to meet the needs of every individual.
As a Voluntary Aided school, St Patrick’s comes under the control of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth, and the Bishop appoints Foundation Governors who, alongside LA, staff and parent governors, take responsibility for ensuring that the school is run efficiently and, most importantly, that the Catholic ethos of the school is preserved. In addition, the Governing Body is responsible for considering all admissions to the school, employing staff and maintaining the school building and grounds.
We also enjoy the support of Southampton LA and we work in close partnership with the officers of the local authority to ensure the highest educational standards for all the children.
For any enquiries, please contact Mrs Adams in the school office.
We have declared that our mission is “to follow the loving example shown by Jesus Christ” and this is at the heart of all that we say and do. For this to become a reality, we believe that there must be a partnership between home, school and Parishes and we aim to involve all members of this partnership at all times. Thus we have strong links with our feeder Parishes and the Parish priests are regular visitors.
