Academy Alumni Community

Our Alumni community helps past pupils and staff from St. Patrick’s Academy, the Girls’ Academy and Boys’ Academy remain in contact. Old Academy friends have reconnected using our facebook page.  Click here to find us on facebook.  We currently have 1.2K followers.

Mailing List

Join the alumni mailing list to find out about upcoming events.


We have been archiving items of interest including old year books, photos and articles and would be very appreciative if anyone has further items to add to our collection. These can be left at reception, where we will carefully scan your photograph and return to you.

Social events

Upcoming Events:

  • Fellowship 77 – 40th Reunion
    • If you started Year 8 in St. Patrick’s Academy in 1977 (or later joined this year group when they were years 9-14), you are invited to attend a reunion event.
    • Date/Time: Saturday 9th September 2017, Glenavon House Hotel Bistro Restaurant at 7pm

    • Brian would also like anyone interested in helping to organise and promote the event to make contact with him.
  • Closure of Academy building
    • Next year we will be running events to mark the closure of this building and the opening of the new school.  Please register with the Alumni as we will be in touch with past pupils again to communicate details of these events.


  • Archived Event: MacRory Reunion match

    We were delighted to host the first Academy Alumni social event in October 2014. This event was organised by past pupil Owen Coyle. Owen organised a MacRory Reunion match and details of the event can be viewed in our news section.

We welcome any ideas for future events, please make contact if you have an idea and we can meet to discuss how we can help.

Career Advice

We are very grateful to our Alumni who have returned to the school to assist our current pupils with career advice and have volunteered their services as career mentors. In addition, we would like to thank our Alumni who have assisted with mock interviews. This contribution has enabled high quality preparation for pupils as they embark upon the next stage after the Academy.
