St. Patrick’s & St. Brigid’s College, Claudy - A Message from the Principal

Welcome to our school

I am honoured and privileged to take on the role of Principal here in St Patrick's & St Brigid's College; a school with a strong record of success seen through the academic achievements of its pupils and through their sporting successes on the field and in other extra-curricular activities. This is a school which places great value on developing the whole child and nurturing and supporting each pupil to enable each to succeed in all they do.

Having spent most of my teaching career in Belfast and then in Ballymena as a Teacher of Drama and English, I am delighted to return to the North West, where I have my roots. Coming to St Patrick's & St Brigid's College is really just like coming home. The school, which nestles in the village of Claudy, surrounded by breathtaking views of the Sperrins, offers young people from the town; the surrounding rural communities and the city of Derry, the opportunity to be educated in a warm, welcoming, family environment where each child is valued.

I am fully committed to continuing to develop the strong community spirit which is evident in the college and almost tangible as you cross our threshold. I am determined to build upon the college's recent successes in all areas and will do all that I can to ensure that each pupil is given the help, encouragement and support he/she requires to fulfill his/her potential. I look forward to working in partnership with our pupils, their parents/guardians and our staff to enable the college to continue to enjoy success at all levels.

Mrs D O'Kane

Chairman's Message

A Message from the Chairman

Chairman of the Board of Governors

Dear Parents/Carers,

On behalf of the Board of Governors, the Principal, the staff, the pupils and everyone associated with St. Patrick's and St. Brigid's College, I would like to thank you for expressing an interest in this school.  The popularity of this school continues to go from strength to strength and to be much sought after. Pupils come from the parish of Claudy and neighbouring parishes. Indeed, a large number of them come from as far afield as Prehen, Culmore and Eglinton.  In the past, examination results have been consistently impressive and last year they were once again outstanding. It is a source of great satisfaction for my fellow governors and myself, to see children, including those with additional educational needs, performing so well in examinations.
