Our Specialist Subjects
At St Patrick's we recognise that education is far more diverse than the traditional English and maths. To that end we provide our students with a range of specialist subjects to complete the curriculum.
Physical Education (PE) at St Patrick's focuses on developing students Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS), teamwork, cooperation, respect and to promote the benefits of leading an active lifestyle. Each class attends a weekly one hour PE lesson where students practise their movement skills, develop new movement strategies and concepts to give them the confidence to participate in a range of sporting and game based activities.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT)

Our I.C.T Leader will be working in collaboration with teachers and students in the classrooms to support the use of contemporary technology to demonstrate students understandings in all curriculum areas. Students will explore how to use technology efficiently as a responsible citizen, and learn how to keep themselves and their information safe online. For more information click, click here.
