Principal’s Welcome

Colin Holmes, Principal

Welcome to our school website, where learning meets limitless possibilities. Together, let's embark on a journey of growth, discovery, and excellence.

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. Whether you are already part of the Academy community or an interested member of the public, I hope that you enjoy visiting our website and that you learn more about everything that happens in and beyond the classroom here at the Academy. We are currently reviewing our website, so you will see exciting changes to it over the next term.


Dedicated to St Patrick, the Academy has been a beacon for quality Catholic education in Dungannon since 1891. As we settle in to our new school building we work hard to be a centre of excellence for the 21st Century – in short, we want to be a modern school with traditional values.


Our website offers you a window through which you can see into all aspects of Academy life but, should you wish to visit us in person and meet some of our pupils and staff, please do not hesitate to make contact. Whether you wish to renew old friendships or to learn more about what we do, you will always be welcome. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.
