Our Mission Statement

"An education of the heart, the mind and the soul"

We are a Roman Catholic school that welcomes children of all faiths and none, in the belief that our ethos will be of benefit to all. The heart of any Roman Catholic school is its Catholic ethos and the commitment it shows to Gospel Values, in Christian service to God and others. As a result, we will have a very strong and very clear ethos and we will endeavour to ensure that this ethos will be of benefit to all members of our school community; pupils, staff and families.

Our School Aims

  • We will promote Gospel values and seek to develop the spiritual and moral lives of our pupils through the example of St. Angela. We are committed to ensuring that every child will be loved, cared for and believed in. This will create the fertile soil within which all children can flourish, in all areas of their personal development.
  • We will promote the ongoing faith formation of all members of our school community, with an emphasis on ‘Serviam’, in compassionate service to others.
  • We will place equal value on the education of the heart, the mind and the soul, in the sure and certain knowledge that only through the development of all three can you truly become the person you were born to be, the best that you can be.


The Ursuline Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We recognise that all adults, including temporary staff volunteers and governors have a full and active part to play in protecting or pupils from harm and that the child’s welfare is our paramount concern.

We believe that our school should provide a caring, positive, safe and stimulating environment that promotes the social, emotional, physical and moral development of the individual child or young person. We have a safeguarding policy in place which is shared with all staff, Governors and Trustees and is available on the School Policies webpage or on request from the School Office.
