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 or way of life 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 - equal in His sight.
I hope that the information provided will give you an insight into a warm and welcoming school.

Staff at St Monica's RCHS and friends are raising money by walking up Ben Nevis in memory of Ben O'Shea Ben O’Shea passed away peacefully in hospital surrounded by his loving family on the afternoon of Tuesday, 3 September 2013.
He had been ill for some time, but had attended school whenever he could. Ben was a model pupil; he was a bright, warm-hearted, hardworking, friendly, happy boy who was always smiling. He was unfailingly polite and he never complained or felt sorry for himself. He bore his illness with enormous courage and a fortitude which belied his tender years. Our school was blessed to have had him with us even for such a short time and he will be remembered with a great deal of love and affection by staff and pupils alike.
The staff of St Monica’s will be putting on their climbing boots in order to tackle Ben Nevis on Sunday 4 May this year, in the hope of raising money for the Young Oncology Unit, Christie Hospital, where Ben was cared for. Please contribute whatever you can for this deserving cause. Thank you.
