As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition St Patrick’s College prides itself on being a place of faith, learning and humility. For over 60 years St Patrick’s has been committed to educating young men from Years 5 through to 12.

Nestled on the cliffs of Shorncliffe overlooking Moreton Bay, St Patrick’s College provides an educational journey for boys from Years 5 to 12. Traditionally students have come from the local Sandgate / Shorncliffe area however, in recent years the College draws students from a wide cross section of suburbs on the north side of Brisbane.

The College motto is ‘Certa Bonum Certamen’ (Fight the Good Fight) and it reminds the community that the person and story of Jesus Christ is our foundation, seen through the lens of Blessed Edmund Rice. Throughout their journey, the young men of St Patrick’s College are challenged to seek excellence within a holistic education. The College aims to nurture their talents in a caring and supportive environment in which they can flourish and grow into reflective and confident young men of action who contribute to their community for the good of all.


St Patrick’s College recognises the traditional owners of the area, the Turrbal People.
