St.Patrick’s Anglo-Indian Higher Secondary School,a centenary institution of great renown ,was founded in 1875 by the Irish Brothers to cater to the educational needs of the sons of British settlers in Madras,and a few Indian boys, whose parents wanted them to have the benefit of Western education . It is managed by the Patrician Brothers who have some of the finest schools in India and abroad.
The dawn of the last century set off the process of expansion of the school at a quicker pace. The school has grown to colossal proportions and has done its best to maintain the highest standards of education.It has moulded and shaped the lives of generations of students.
I am proud to state that St. Patrick’s is not an ordinary school. For decades, it has remained firmly rooted in its resolve to provide the best possible education to its students in an environment that is conductive to learning. We, at St.Patrick’s, urge our students to chase their dreams with passion and discover their true calling .We help our children improve their physical, intellectual and emotional gifts and develop their ethical sensitivity. We are fully committed to creating ethical and responsible leaders of tomorrow who contribute to the society in some way or other for its betterment. When our children step out into the bigger world after their schooling here, they are fully prepared and adequately equipped with noble qualities, moral values and intellectual expertise to take on the challenges of the adult world with supreme confidence to excel and succeed in life.

The religious congregation ‘The Brothers of St. Patrick’ was founded by Bishop Daniel Delany in Tullow, Ireland, on 2nd February, 1808. The first four Patrician Brothers were John Baptist McMahon, John Evangelist Cummins, Bernard Fitzpatrick and Joseph Dawson.
Daniel Delany was born into a well-to-do family at Paddock in central Ireland in 1747. After his father’s death, young Daniel spent most of his childhood with his two aunts in Mountrath. At a very young age, he decided to enter the priesthood. He received his priestly education in France and was ordained priest in 1770. Father Delany was appointed assistant parish priest in the parish of Tullow, a village 80 kilometers south of Dublin. In 1783, Father Delany was consecrated co-adjutor bishop. Three years later he became the bishop of the diocese of Kildare and Leighlin. Bishop Delany founded two religious congregations. He founded ‘The Sisters of Saint Brigid’ (Brigidines) on 1st February, 1807. A year later, on the 2nd of February, he founded ‘The Brothers of St. Patrick’ (Patricians). Bishop Delany along with the Brigidine Sisters and Patrician Brothers worked relentlessly for the education of the young of his diocese. Bishop Delany died at Tullow in 1814.Know More
