St Patrick's RC High School

School Experience Days with St Patrick’s RC High School and our Centre of Excellence.
St Patrick’s Roman Catholic High School is committed to supporting our next generation of teachers into this wonderful profession. Each year we welcome people of all faiths and non as they start their journey into teaching. For many of our future teachers this exciting journey begins with a visit to our school, organised by the St Patrick’s Centre of Educational Excellence.

Young people need the very best people to be their teacher. Someone who will help them grow and develop a passion for learning and support them to become the very best version of themselves.
If you have committed to serving our young people and wish to develop yourself as an evidence enriched teacher why not visit St Patrick’s and see our school at work.

If you are considering applying to join our family on our School Led Teacher training course we look forward to welcome you on your day with us.

Why not visit us before you apply to our course and meet our staff, pupils and current trainee teachers as you begin your own career in education?

The whole life of a teacher and school community is catered for during your initial day with us in order to allow you to gain a small taste and understanding of school life. You will get to see how our pupils and teachers work together to create an environment where:

“Pupils behave in a calm and orderly manner, both in lessons and during social times. Classroom environments are positive places where pupils can thrive. Pupils work well with each other, debating and discussing their learning confidently”. OFSTED 2022
