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.)

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.
