About St Philomena's Catholic High School for Girls


A community where Christ is present.

St Philomena's exists as a distinct community because it has Christ as its foundation. His teaching and example are the basis for its daily life, relationships and future hopes. It should be possible to meet Christ in all aspects of the life of the school and the spiritual dimension should underpin all its work:

a) Service: Leadership in the school must reflect its Christian nature by putting the welfare and development of pupils and staff and so putting Christ’s example into practice.

b) Personal Relationship: The twin themes of love of God and love of neighbour should guide every member of the community, both pupils and staff. It is through the respect, concern and care shown by all members of the school for each other, whether pupils or staff that we can see love of neighbour in practice.

c) Spiritual Development: St Philomena's should provide a setting where the faith of pupils and staff can mature.

d) Curriculum: This should encourage excellence and achievement through the breadth of opportunity available, the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom and the motivation that comes from good relationships between staff and pupils. Each pupil is equally important and this should be reflected in the curriculum where all pupils should be encouraged to achieve their potential, and have their achievements recognised and praised.
