Welcome to St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls’ website. We really hope you like what you see here because choosing a secondary school for your daughter will probably be one of the most important decisions you make as a parent.

Founded by the Daughters of the Cross in 1893 and set in 25 acres of parkland, St Philomena's offers exceptional education to girls and young women aged 11 to 18 years (Ofsted 2008).

At St Philomena's we have a clear, distinctive Catholic ethos that helps our students to feel completely secure and this brings with it a sense of shared ownership in the school. Our students are inquisitive, open to new ideas, hungry to learn and aware of their responsibilities to others and to the world in which they live.

We are rightly very proud of our academic record, the students and their achievements. We actively encourage our students to take a lead role in their education, develop their learning whilst maturing into confident, resilient, resourceful young women able to face any challenge.

Our commitment to you is that your daughter will be welcomed to St Philomena's as a child and will leave as a young woman, with a broad and balanced breadth of knowledge and experience, enriched by her education and ready to embrace the challenges presented by the wider world.

We hope you will enjoy exploring our website.

Safeguarding Statement 

At St Philomena’s the health, safety and well-being of every student is of paramount importance. We expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment to safeguarding the young people in our care.

We listen to our students and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection and students are made aware of the adults they can talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of harm or neglect and are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The procedures which we follow have been laid down in ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ (March 2016) and ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (Sept 2016) and the school has adopted a Child Protection Policy in line with this, for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a child may mean that we have to consult other agencies. Where possible we will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to a child’s welfare.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss O’Reilly (Assistant Headteacher)

The Deputy Safeguarding Leads are Ms Noone (Headteacher), Mrs O'Connor, Mr Balachandran, Miss Lawson, Miss Qureshi, Miss Hudspith, Miss Neary, Miss King, Miss Ellis, Mrs Snowden, Mrs Town, Miss Wheeler, Ms Salamonczyk, Mr Stavrou, Ms Slark, Ms Cox.

The Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy is available here.



St Philomena’s is an exceptional school. It is successful, very popular and has a deservedly good reputation. The Catholic ethos underpins the friendly, purposeful environment and reflects the school’s core mission of ‘Learning through rigour and care’. It is highly effective in providing an inclusive and challenging education where every child is supported and encouraged to do as well as they can.
