About us

The Mission of the school is to create a Christian environment in which each student can grow in personality, relationships, knowledge and skill towards a full realisation of her potential.
 
Our aim and tradition as a school is to create a Christian environment in which our students can grow, developing a love of learning and abilities that will enable them to become confident young women.  True to the principles of the Ursuline Sisters who founded the school in 1900, we foster the teachings and spiritual values of the Catholic Faith and also help our students to be inspired by the life and teachings of St Angela Merici.
 
In keeping with St Angela’s vision we promote the importance of quality relationships, which are marked by goodness, kindness and attentiveness to one another, as signs of God’s love for every human being.  St Angela encouraged the members of the Company of St Ursula to adapt themselves to the demands of the times and places in which they lived and we endeavour to help our students to do the same and to have the confidence to respond to them in a new way, which is faithful to the Gospel and the influence of the Holy Spirit.
 
The Ursuline Order has always been at the cutting edge of education and this is a commitment of the governors and staff.  We build on a rich tradition and we work to provide an educational experience of quality seeking to maintain all that has been successful whilst developing new ideas and practices.
