Ursuline College is an excellent school which upholds high standards of academic attainment and behaviour. We firmly believe there is no ceiling on achievement and that in every individual there is the potential to succeed. Our school is one where young people can enjoy learning and they are given opportunities to develop their talents to the full. We always aim to deliver high quality teaching in a supportive and caring learning environment.
As an Ursuline school our Catholic Christian ethos is important to us. It allows us to nurture our young people so that they feel safe and secure whilst developing a respect for others and the wider world in which they live. We are an open, tolerant and inclusive school where there is an emphasis on developing character and values. It is important to us to develop excellent pastoral care so that pupils feel happy and supported, we acknowledge that good pastoral care underpins academic achievement. Our most recent Ofsted report noted that “Students behave with care and courtesy. They are friendly and polite” (Ofsted 2015). We also recognise that children are motivated by learning experiences beyond the classroom and we aim to give them the chance to experience this. Ultimately we aim to provide an innovative and forward looking education to prepare students for their future.
The school is part of the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership which is a multi-academy trust consisting of around 20 schools in Kent. The school benefits from the advantages a large organisation like this can provide and has developed close links with other schools as a result.
