Welcome from Mr Andy English, Interim Head of School 


It is with great pleasure that I invite you to view our website and explore some of the achievements of our students. I am absolutely delighted to be the Headteacher at Our Lady’s High School and consider it a real privilege to lead this learning community.  This 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 High School is an all girls’ Catholic school with a mixed Sixth Form.  It was established in Amhurst Park in 1904 by the Servite Sisters in order to provide education to young women in Hackney.  This is a heritage that we are proud to continue and the Servite values of our founders underpin the work of the school to this day.

We have a strong commitment to nurturing the individual, as well as promoting excellent academic outcomes. Our standards are high and maintained through excellent teaching, positive relationships and a culture of aspiration. We are a small school, with only four forms of entry, but this allows us to truly pursue excellence whilst knowing and caring for each individual in our community.

As Headteacher I know how fortunate we are to have such a strong, compassionate and talented staff.  The partnership that exists between school and home, with a foundation in shared faith, makes this a very special place to teach and learn.  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 continue to provide the very best environment for your young people to grow and mature both intellectually and emotionally; together we are ‘shaping tomorrow, inspired by faith’.

If you are a prospective parent or student, we would very much like the opportunity to show you who we are, so please contact the school to arrange a visit or re-visit our website in the summer term, to find out about open evenings and other opportunities to visit and tour the school.

Mr A English
Interim Head of School
