Headteacher's Welcome

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

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

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Here at the Ursuline, Wimbledon we are very proud of our strong sense of identity, community, and commitment to equality. Student wellbeing and learning are at the heart of everything we do.

Supported by their families, an Ursuline student is committed to their catholic faith and our core value of Serviam. We are developing students to be people of action who can make a difference in the school and beyond, who are kind, forgiving, generous of spirit and persevering.

Your child 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 people 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 and have a comprehensive Student Leadership Programme from Year 7-13.

We are a progressive school attuned and alert to the needs of our students in an ever-changing environment. As we transition (fingers crossed!) ‘back to normal’ post Covid we are enjoying being together in person and look forward to welcoming our parent community to the school. However, ‘Ursuline Online’ saw many positives, many of which now form an integral part of our digital learning strategy. We are proud that students continue to make outstanding progress despite the challenges faced. It is testament to our strong school-student-parent community.

Our parents are fundamental to the success of all our students. Our strong partnership, and shared values ensure the highest standards of achievement and personal development. We look forward to welcoming you to our school and working together to educate your daughters both in their Catholic faith and academic and personal growth.

Best wishes

Julia Waters
