Headteacher's Welcome

“We share a collective responsibility for ensuring that every student does as well as she possibly can...

We believe that by providing the best possible care, guidance and support for our students’ academic and pastoral needs, every girl is enabled to be her best."


Dear Parents and Carers,

Here at the Ursuline we are very proud of our strong sense of identity, community and commitment to equality. Student well being and learning are at the heart of everything we do. This year ‘Ursuline online ‘ has provided all students with continued learning and strong pastoral support through our digital learning strategy. We are proud that students have been able to make outstanding progress this year.

We are a progressive school attuned and alert to the needs of our students in an ever-changing environment.

An Ursuline student is committed to her faith and our core value of Serviam. We are developing students to be women of action who can make a difference in the school, who are kind, forgiving, generous of spirit and persevering.

Your daughter will be part of a national and worldwide network of Ursuline schools. We share common goals delivering a global education focused on; academic excellence, service in the spirit of St Angela Merici, outstanding pastoral care and a focus on developing young women as leaders. Our provision is world class. Excellent teaching is in place with a curriculum that provides depth, challenge and outstanding opportunities for students to develop their passion for learning. We have an engaging faith development programme led by our Chaplain. We offer a wide-ranging enrichment programme in Arts, Sports, Languages and Culture. We have a comprehensive student leadership programme from Year 7-13

Our parents and alumnae are fundamental to the success of all our students. Our strong partnership and shared values with parents ensures the highest standards of achievement and personal development. We look forward to sharing our Open Events with you.

Yours sincerely,

Julia Waters
