Our students achieved excellent English results again and our highest ever GCSE Maths results. This is a fantastic achievement for all involved and a testament to the hard work and determination of our students, staff and supportive families over the past two years.


Principal, Mrs. Scullion said "These results are clear proof of our student's dedication to hard work,  the support of their parents and carers and the input from our staff at every level, who continue to ensure high quality teaching and learning. Well done to everyone on achieving their personal excellence, your hard work and effort has paid off, I am so proud of you all. A special word of congratulations to our Yr. 11 students who performed equally well and have set a high standard and solid foundation for their Yr. 12 studies".


We wish the very best of luck to those opting to study at other centres, undertake apprenticeships and enter the world of work, you will always be welcome at St. Patrick’s College and we hope you keep in touch to share your future achievements and success.

We are absolutely delighted to share with you that at the Families First NI Awards ceremony on Saturday 20th of May


WE WON......!!!!

'Co. Derry School of the Year 2023'


(Staff at the awards ceremony proudly representing the whole school and our wider community)


Mr. Kelly received 2 awards .....!!!

'Special Recognition GEM Award' Going the Extra Mile”


Highly Commended 'Co. Derry Teacher of the Year 2023'

(Mr. Raymond Kelly beaming with pride - pictured with his wife Leona and Principal, Mrs. Scullion)


It was an honour to be nominated and have the opportunity to represent our school and community but so special to have won and accept the Co. Derry 'School of the Year' 2023 award on behalf of all staff, pupils, parents and wider school community. When the process started, I could never have anticipated the response, it has been overwhelming at times with hundreds of comments submitted online. Each comment equally as heartfelt and sincere. The comments came from a mixture of past and present parents/pupils and other shareholders in our community who have engaged with and supported our school over the years.


Thank you to everyone who supported our nomination and submitted comments to the judges, it was so lovely to hear some of them read out and shared with the audience at the awards ceremony.


It was such a pleasure to watch Mr. Kelly be recognised for his contribution to our school and his positive impact on our young people through teaching, music, pastoral and personal engagements. The comments of support over recent weeks have meant a great deal to him and the awards he received were a fitting confirmation of what we all know about him. Congratulations Mr. Kelly.


When we have concluded our formal examinations later this term we will host a number of 'thanks and celebration' events for our pupils to acknowledge their vital role in our school community and their part in our whole school success in achieving these and other awards.


Thank you for your continued support for our school, it is very much appreciated and never taken for granted.

Mrs. L. Scullion - Principal

Our 'Anti-Bullying Week' assemblies highlighted the responsibilities we all share to include and respect each other at all times.
We encouraged pupils to wear 'odd socks' to help celebrate what makes us each unique and were delighted with the response.
Thank you all for being such good sports and engaging in the discussions around inclusion and respect.
Thank you to all the parents, pupils and staff who contributed to our bake sale this morning. We will direct all funds raised to our ongoing
Mental Health initiatives, resources, visiting speakers and after school clubs.
Thank you to our senior prefects for assisting in the organisation of the bake sale and for encouraging so many responses to our 'Positive Messages' noticeboard.
Pupils shared thoughts and messages about those in their lives that bring them happiness, show them kindness or inspire them in some way.
We all have a responsibility to look after our own and each other's Mental Health, being kind and speaking openly are attributes we
continue to seek out and encourage in our pupils.
Keep up the good work.
Upcoming Events

I am honoured to introduce myself as the Principal of St. Patricks College, Dungiven.

I believe St. Patrick’s College to be a wonderful school, which places a high value on quality education, Catholic Faith development, student wellbeing and the safety of everyone in our care. Our school thrives on the invaluable support we receive from our local communities.

We believe in developing the whole child academically, spiritually, emotionally, socially, and actively seek to provide opportunities and experiences that help them become more confident, well-rounded and ambitious young adults. We have a wide and varied extra-curricular programme reviewed periodically to ensure that there is something for everyone.

Our outcomes are strong at both GCSE and A Level. We are committed to delivering a broad and balanced curriculum that includes excellent opportunities for enrichment and leadership at all levels.

Our communities endured a challenging period during the worst of Covid-19 pandemic meaning our mission is more important than ever to go the ‘extra mile’ supporting our young people through our pastoral systems effecting positive change and growth in their lives.
