Invitation to the Open Events

Mr A English, Headteacher at Our Lady's is inviting you to the Open Events

Dear Parent/Carer,

Our Lady’s is an inclusive, girls-only Catholic school with a mixed Sixth Form. It provides an outstanding education to students of all faiths, and those with none. We are a small, nurturing community with very strong academic results, which are not only among the best in the borough, they are also significantly above national. The school has a rich tradition of serving this local community with distinction for more than a hundred years. Girls here are encouraged to think independently, growing their strengths, gifts and talents and to share these for the common good.

Students here are valued. They are offered an exceptional curriculum that meets their individual interests and needs. We offer a comprehensive and vibrant extra-curricular provision, including clubs, debating and educational trips and visits. There are plenty of opportunities for stretch and challenge both inside and outside of the classroom. Your child will be encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities throughout her time at the school. 

Our standards are high, secured through excellent teaching and positive relationships, transforming our students into scholars as they journey through the school. Our students secure strong academic results and progress into leadership in many spheres of society including, law, medicine and nursing, finance, engineering and design.

Every year our students win places at leading Russell Group and Oxbridge universities, a significant majority securing their first-choice destination.

The school is centrally located in Stamford Hill with very easy access to excellent transport links including nearby underground and overground stations and we are on 10 local bus routes. 

The Our Lady’s Experience:

  • The pastoral system fosters a positive atmosphere in which all members of the community look out for each other. Each student has a form tutor and a Head of Year who know our families and girls well;

  • A monthly parent forum is held with the headteacher to discuss matters of interest in the education of our young people;

  • An educational journey starting from Year 7 enables all in our care to flourish and achieve their full potential;

  • As a small school, every child is well-known to staff; 

  • Small teaching groups supporting the needs and interests of all in our community;

  • A vibrant Sixth Form.

At Our Lady’s, we strive every day to live up to our Servite values of compassion, service, respect, diversity and community. Students are taught these values which are seen in action through their relationships in the community and charitable work. We pride ourselves in developing students who grow into well-rounded, curious and compassionate individuals. 

I encourage you to visit our open events to learn more about the school.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
