The pursuit of academic excellence is central to what we do here in St. Patrick’s BNS, Donabate. We ensure that our students reach their full potential. The teaching staff of 16 class teachers and 8 support teachers are professional, capable, well-organised and totally committed to our boys. We are passionate about creating a learning environment where the boys not only develop academically, but also develop a love of learning and thirst for more knowledge.

Our school welcomes children with specific and complex needs. We have a dedicated team of Special Needs Assistants who look after the care needs of our students. Our school is under the leadership of a full time and dedicated Principal, Brian Horan and Deputy Principal, Anthony Manning. We also have two school secretaries, Denise and Claire, who are always here to help.

Our School Chaplain is Fr. Pat Reilly.

Our dedicated Board of Management is composed of representatives of our patron, parents and teachers and is appointed every four years.
