Why choose Educate Together?
There are a lot of reasons to choose Educate Together as a second-level school patron: at primary level Educate Together has forty years experience of providing an education based on human rights and that welcomes all children regardless of religious, social or cultural background. Educate Together has established a tradition of democracy, inclusion and equality that benefits pupils, parents and teachers alike.
Educate Together second-level schools continue in this vein, with innovative teaching methods, an inclusive, student-centred ethos and a move away from ‘teaching to the test’ so that all aspects of student well-being is considered.
What happens next?

If you’re a parent or carer of a child in primary school and living in this area, you can vote for your patron of choice here. The DES will collate the results and award patronage according to parental preference It’s that simple!
