St Patrick's & St Joseph's
Takes the hand, stretches the mind, touches the heart
St Patrick's & St Joseph's Schools


St. Patrick’s and St. Joseph’s is a federated school, which is situated on two sites 2 1/2 miles apart encompassing the Garvagh and Glenullin catchment areas. A large majority of children come from the immediate rural area. A significant number of pupils also travel by taxis from the Aghadowey area.
At present there are 155 pupils enrolled at the school, 8 permanent teaching staff and 10 non- teaching support staff.

We aim, as a community to provide a warm and caring environment where children are happy and relationships at all levels within the school are good. The children are friendly and well behaved and enjoy school life. This is a Catholic school and as such each child is encouraged to partake fully in our religious celebrations and live according to our shared faith.

Our school motto encapsulates our ethos:

‘Takes the hand, Touches the heart, Stretches the mind’

Our vision is to create a learning environment which gives every pupil the opportunity to develop their full potential and so be prepared for the challenges and opportunities of their lives ahead.
