History of the school

Spread over acres, St. Patrick’s High School (ICSE) is situated on the banks of the Adyar River under the lush green canopy of trees at close proximity to the Kotturpuram MRTC Railway Station on one side and the Adyar Bus Terminus on the other.

St. Patrick’s Nursery and Primary School that formally functioned under St. Patrick’s Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School has now been expanded into St. Patrick’s High School (ICSE) from the year 2009 through public request and is run on a separate campus. The school is co-educational and is affiliated to the ICSE Board. Its medium of instruction is English.

At the time of its formation, the school was housed in a single two-storey building with 250 students on roll. Substantial development has taken place every year and today the school boasts of an excellent infrastructure and facility to impart exemplary education to 1000 students every day. We currently run classes from KG to Class X.

The building has been enlarged with an additional wing and now includes 21 classrooms, a science lab, a state of the art Computer Lab, 2 Language Rooms, a Music Room, an Art Room, a Dance Room, 2 huge and spacious Multi-purpose Halls, a Medical Room to administer First-Aid, the Student Counsellor’s Cabin, Junior and Senior Coordinator’s Offices, separate Rest Rooms and Wash Areas for Girls and Boys on every floor, a well-stocked Library, a modern indoor Play Zone for the Kindergarteners and Lower Primary classes, 3 huge play grounds and a Canteen that serves scrumptious meals to the students. The Administrative Block houses the Principal’s Office, the School Office and the Stationery Room. The school also has a separate Kindergarten Block annexed to it.

Ever since its inception, the school strives to fulfill the vision of its founder, to give its students a holistic and value based education, the values of which will stay on and influence everyone who passes out through this institution.

The mission and purpose of the school has also remained steadfast since its inception, and over time has developed a child-centred curriculum from Kindergarten to Class ten. The organization and content of the curriculum are planned with the emphasis on individual learning.

The school has grown to its present magnificence due to the unstinted and loyal service of the Principals, and the dedicated staff of the yesteryears and the present.

Our school beckons majestically to all seekers of knowledge to walk through its huge gates to receive the multi-faceted education and experience the exciting, fun-filled school life.

The success, academic excellence, the good spirit of the pupils, the great interest taken by the staff and the splendid union that exists between the management, staff, parents and their wards has enabled our school to successfully reach the milestone of 10 glorious years of teaching. Our true success and happiness lies in seeing our students utilize their talents, abilities and skills to have a positive impact on themselves, their friends, family and the society at large.
