The school works collaboratively with the Merton Deanery Catholic schools: we are currently engaged in a project to raise the standards of STEM across the primary schools.

We are a partnership school with Maths NoProblem, offer school to school support in regard to C.P.A mathematical approaches and assist local schools to improve their approaches to Teaching and Learning.   

We enjoy good transport links to Wimbledon, Sutton, Croydon, Tooting, London Bridge and London Victoria, and are within easy reach of the Surrey Hills and the South Downs.
