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 achievements and our strong sense of community and identity based on the charism of St Angela Merici.

We aim to develop confident and aspirational young women who are willing and able to seize new opportunities. An Ursuline student is: committed to her faith. She is kind, forgiving, and generous of spirit and perseveres. She is enterprising, respectful of others, committed to developing her leadership skills and is an active member of her school and local community.

There has been an Ursuline School here in Wimbledon for 127 years and we are part of a worldwide network of Ursuline schools. As such we are proud to be providers of a modern global education focused on: Academic excellence, service in the spirit of St Angela Merici, addressing individual needs and developing young women as leaders.

We have an engaging faith development programme led by our Chaplain. Excellent teaching is in place with outstanding opportunities for students to develop their skills. We offer a wide-ranging enrichment programme in Arts, Sports, Languages and Culture. We have a comprehensive student leadership programme with outstanding links with schools across the world.

Our parents and alumnae are fundamental to the success of all our students. Our strong partnership with parents ensures the highest standards of achievement and personal development.

We look forward to welcoming you at our Open Evening and Open Mornings.

Yours sincerely,

Julia Waters
