St Patrick’s Academy is a well-established, independent school situated in Sunnyside, Blantyre. The process of developing young adults into balanced, accomplished and confident adults is central to our vision, which forms the core of St Patrick’s.

At St Patrick’s we regard each and every one of our students as a true original, with his/her own special set of talents and attributes. As educators, we are honoured to be part of this transformation: from the Preschool where boys and girls grow with confidence and enquiring minds, to the Junior and Senior Schools where they flourish and develop each year, acquiring skills for life and the ability to contribute to a global future.

St Patrick’s Schools offers a balanced education with wealth of opportunities for all our students to embrace. Our academic programme is challenging and imaginative, designed to foster intellectual curiosity and a lifelong love of learning. We believe that healthy minds and bodies are achieved through offering a variety of sports such as swimming, hockey, netball, athletics, tennis, squash, basketball, football and badminton.

Community service is a core component of life at St Patrick’s School. Our students are expected to participate in various community service opportunities as well as fund raise for charitable organisations.

Our boarding house caters for 80 girls and 80 boys.  Boarding is available from Form 1 – 6. We welcome girls and boys from all over Malawi and beyond into our happy, comfortable, and friendly environment.

We strive to equip our students with lifelong skills for living in the exciting world of the 21st century. We aim to produce young women and men who will make a difference in their communities and who will embrace all opportunities and challenges that they may face in our ever changing environment.
