School News & Events

Welcome to Ardscoil Phádraig Longford


I wish to extend a very warm welcome to those students who are considering attending Ardscoil Phádraig. I am cognisant that identifying the right secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in terms of his/her education.  Our aim in Ardscoil Phádraig is to provide a high quality learning environment. We constantly strive for excellence in learning and teaching by providing a rich and diverse curriculum that caters for the needs of each individual. The school also provides a vast range of educational experiences that will both stimulate and challenge your child. We are committed to the development and care of each and every student. A strong emphasis is placed on the personal and social development of all our students through the provision of a wide range of after-school activities with all students actively encouraged to participate. We are very aware of the importance of a smooth transition for prospective students from primary to secondary school. In this regard, first year students are supported from their first day in school by a dedicated and committed staff. We strive every day to maintain a happy, caring and respectful atmosphere where all students and staff can achieve their full potential. We believe that every pupil is unique and that it is our task to enable all students to reach their potential as an individual whilst also encouraging them to respect the differences of others in the community. During their time in our school, we will endeavour to ensure that each pupil will have developed into a self-confident young person, ready to take their place in society. I look forward to meeting you and your child when you visit the school, whether it is on Open Night, during many of our high profile activities and events or at information evenings. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school. I would be delighted to answer your questions.
