Headteacher's Welcome

Our Lady's is a truly wonderful school with bright, caring and aspirational students who are taught by a dedicated and talented team of teachers.

Our Lady’s Catholic High School is an inclusive Catholic school. It was established in Amhurst Park in 1904 by the Servite Sisters in order to provide education to young women in Hackney.

From September 2024, the school will admit boys into Year 7, providing the same high-quality teaching and personal development opportunities that our girls experience.

This is a heritage that we are proud to continue. The Servite values of our founders underpin the work of the school to this day. We have a strong commitment to nurturing each child, as well as promoting excellent academic outcomes. Our standards are high and maintained through excellent teaching, positive relationships and a culture of high aspiration.

Our school allows us to know each unique child personally, and this allows us to truly pursue excellence.

I know how fortunate we are to have such strong, compassionate, committed and talented staff.

The partnership that exists between school and home, with a foundation in shared faith, makes this a very special place to flourish. Our teachers enjoy their work, are passionate about teaching and learning, and are ambitious for our students. I know that with the support of parents and families, partnered with the school’s culture of service, compassion and aspiration, we will provide the very best environment for your child to grow and mature both intellectually and emotionally; together we are ‘Shaping Tomorrow, Inspired by Faith’.

We invite you to visit and experience the energy and vibrancy of the school and witness our values in action.

Mr A English
