Principals Welcome

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.

Because of our size, we can provide your child with excellent pupil-teacher ratios. Our dedicated and enthusiastic teaching staff take the time to really get to know our students and encourage them to participate and achieve their potential not only academically but also in extracurricular activities which are an important aspect of school life. We pride ourselves on our sporting and musical prowess and encourage every one of our students to take part and be a team member.

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.
