Mission Statement 


‘Do something. Get Moving. Risk new things. Stick with it.’  - Our foundress, St Angela Merici  


As a Catholic comprehensive school following the tradition of Ursuline education, we share a collective responsibility to ensure each student achieves their full potential.  

In an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust and care we work together in the spirit of the Gospel to serve, walking alongside our young people to lead by example and instil values in them full of hope and understanding. Through encouragement, responsibility and self-discipline, we enable each individual to grow spiritually and intellectually, in an understanding that better never stops and in order to make a unique and positive contribution to society.   


Working together to fulfil our potential academically, spiritually and socially. Respecting each other, helping each other and bearing with each other, because getting better never stops.
