In keeping with European best practice and advancements in technology and education we allocate time to teaching STEM subjects in St. Pat’s.

We introduce our students to subjects such as physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, technology, applied maths and computer programming. These equip our pupils with the necessary skills for future education and employment.

Our city centre location affords us easy access to a range of visiting experts, workshops and exhibitions. We have close links with NUIG and a high percentage of our pupils attend their Centre for Talented Youth (CTY).

We are very proud of the fact that St. Pat’s received the Discover Science and Maths award 2016 on our very first attempt. Our school regularly exhibits at the annual Science and Technology Fair in NUIG.
