Welcome to La Sainte Union Catholic Secondary School
Welcome to La Sainte Union. We are a Catholic Girls' 11-18 school, with boys joining us in the Sixth Form as part of the LaSwap consortium. Our Catholic identity is at the core of all we do, and we strive to provide a caring and secure environment in which each pupil can achieve and realise his or her own potential. We aim to develop a strong community among our pupils, parents, governors and staff, so that each one feels a sense of belonging, and a deep commitment to our Gospel values of tolerance, respect and compassion. We aim to promote a culture of service to others, and the enhancement of leadership skills, so that with our school council and other student committees we work together to continually improve our school. At La Sainte Union, we are very proud of the excellent achievements of our pupils, in their outstanding public examination results, the trophies they are awarded on the sports fields and the wonderful music concerts and liturgies in which they participate. The staff offer a broad range of extra curricular activities and trips, so that pupils can develop their own talents and aspirations beyond the classroom to prepare for the adult world. I do hope you are able to find the information about the school you require and thank you for visiting our website.
La Sainte Union Catholic School and its broader community believes that Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His life and teaching, is the exemplar of our work as Christian educators. Our commitment is at three levels:
We strive to provide a caring, secure environment in which each pupil can discover and realise their own potential. We wish to develop strength of character and confidence by stressing the pursuit of excellence and concern for others. We seek to educate the whole person, academically, socially, spiritually and morally through a curriculum based on Christian principles and centred on the needs and aspirations of our pupils. We endeavour to promote the dignity of each individual who is a child of God, endowed with their own gifts and talents.
At the heart of the school and in the spirit of Jean Baptiste Debrabant, our founder, are the teachers and support staff. We are both the custodians and developers of his vision in believing that:
"A Christian-based education offers a sure hope for the future of religion and society."
We recognise that commitment to service is integral to Catholic education. We share the task of promoting gospel values, thus preparing our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
As a Catholic community, we are part of a local, national and universal Church, dedicated to ensuring that our pupils grow to an understanding of their Faith in a Catholic environment, where the calibre of religious teaching and quality of life will be formative in the hearts and minds of young people.
Fundamental to the successful education is the partnership between governors and staff, pupils and parents, parish and the wider community.
