St Patrick’s is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided school  situated near the town centre of Oldham. We are a one form entry primary school with a part time nursery. There are currently 235 pupils on roll.


St Patrick’s serves the parish of St Mary with St Patrick and we are in the Werneth Ward.  We are a very diverse school with children from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and we have approximately 22 different home languages.


‘The school is a significant agent for cohesion in the local community bringing together families from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.’ OFSTED 2010


St Patrick’s is a happy, caring school where everyone tries their best. We don’t expect anybody to be perfect but we encourage hard work and mutual respect. We use ‘Christ as our vision’ and endeavour to live as Jesus taught us, to love one another and to be forgiving.


Children who join our school become part of the St Patrick’s family along with their parents and our parish.
