St. Patrick’s Boys’ National School has a long and proud tradition of educating boys in Donabate, Portrane & Balheary. Originally founded and endowed by Sophie Evans, grand-aunt of Charles Stuart Parnell and resident of Portrane House in 1824, the school was formerly known as Portrane Boys’ National School and housed in what now forms part of College Court on the Portrane Road.

Our Vision

St. Patrick’s Boys’ National School is a happy, bustling place of learning where chatter and laughter are a constant backdrop. In our school, the children are the focus of everything we do. As a Catholic school, we welcome children of all faiths and none. Central to our ethos, we passionately believe in nurturing children in a holistic way. The children’s academic, social and spiritual development are all equally important.

Here in St Patrick’s Boys’ National School, children will learn academically, but they will also learn how to become a confident and capable member of our community and the wider society.
