Collective Worship

St Georges Cathedral

Keeping our Patron Saint, St Angela Merici at the heart of all we do.

Angela Merici, a 16th century Italian woman, began an organisation which has now spread across the world. Her love of God and passion for the rights of women to decide their future indirectly led to schools being founded in every continent. She had no idea what her legacy would be.

There have been Ursuline schools in England for more than 150 years. Ursuline Sisters travelled to England from Belgium, France and Germany to found schools in order to give young people a sound Christian education. Those Ursuline pioneers had captured what St Angela had said all those years ago: “Do what you have to do with love and charity then let God take over.” Thousands of students have gone on to make a difference in our wider society and across the world.

The Ursuline charism is alive and well in our schools today in Brentwood, Forest Gate, Ilford, Westgate and Wimbledon. Our schools share common values, give generously to the less fortunate and educate each student to achieve their personal best.
