Prospective parents and Year 6 are invited to attend St Monica’s New Intake Evening on Thursday, 12th October 2017 at 6.00 pm. The format of the evening will allow you to not only meet the Headteacher and Head of Year 7, but to look around the school, meet teachers, talk to the pupils and see the pupils learning. Information regarding Admissions, Curriculum, Discipline, Special Educational Needs, Pastoral Care and extra-curricular activities will also be available.
Please note this invitation is intended for families of Year 6 RC pupils who have completed the sacramental programme, living within a contributory parish. Our school’s mission is primarily to serve the contributory parishes as noted in our Admissions policy, published on the school website here. The policy also provides the prioritisation criteria where capacity is available to enable us to allocate places up to the agreed Planned Admission Numbers for applicants who do not reside in the contributory parish. However, we cannot guarantee places will be available. In every instance we urge parents to ensure they complete the application form indicating 3 choices of provision, as we cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be accommodated. The LA website provides guidance on how to apply.
St. Monica's is a Catholic community working in partnership with families, schools and parishes to teach the Catholic faith as a way of life. We provide a caring, supportive environment where everyone is of equal worth. Jesus Christ is central to our school and our main aim is that everyone can develop their God given talents and gifts to the full, while growing in faith through prayer and service.
As a Roman Catholic school, St. Monica's is conducted in accordance with the rites, practices and observances of the Roman Catholic Faith. Religious Education is given according to the doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholic Church.
St. Monica's is a school to be proud of - a school which learns from tradition and history but which also keeps pace with education, challenge and change. It has seen many changes over the years but its aims remain the same - to enable young people to develop their future roles in life.
St. Monica's School is a community which encourages all its members to exercise discipline, respect, tolerance and understanding in the search for knowledge and happiness. The ethos of the School is based on the values taught in the Gospels and applied to our world today. Hence the relationships between students, staff and parents are enhanced by the recognition of each other as Children of God and equal in His sight.
I hope that the information provided will give you an insight into our warm and welcoming school.
