Ursuline College is situated in Westgate on Sea, Kent. We have a fast rail service to London and Ramsgate. Canterbury is 11 miles away for City life.

Ursuline College has an amazing Sports hall with a nearby Astro Turf football pitch on the school grounds. Staff play football (mostly male staff) indoors in the Sport Hall on Fridays afterschool. The Sports hall is hired out continuously so a height of activity is produced from this area every day after school. It is used by Thanet Schools and the local community, the Thanet School Games Officer operates from Ursuline College. We also offer you the opportunity to join our staff choir and take part in school shows, such as the X factor where students and staff take part. This is all voluntary, but lots of fun enjoyed by staff and students.
Teachers organise trips that benefit the students and recently some of our students have just returned from a visit to Cologne in Germany to see the Christmas Markets, Paris and Disney at Easter, the Chocolate Factory and the local Cathedral and nearby sandy beach. We have an active DofE department and students have completed Bronze and Silver awards. During enrichment days all staff alongside students have the opportunity to take part in the activities. We work as a team.
