It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new website. St. Patrick’s College, Lacken Cross is a small and vibrant co-educational school with a long and proud tradition of serving the needs of the local community in a caring and friendly atmosphere (run under the umbrella of the Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Education Training Board.) We provide top quality teaching and learning in our state of the art, modern school and pride ourselves on our student’s state examination results every year across a broad range of subjects.

Our greatest asset in my opinion, is our students. Visitors to our school consistently remark on the wonderful, friendly and inclusive atmosphere that exists among our school community. Our open-door policy exists to meet your concerns about your child’s needs. We welcome your suggestions and hope to work with you in the future as you entrust your child’s secondary school education to us.
