St.Monica'ss 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.
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.

The school has a long standing reputation of delivering excellent results through the setting of aspirational targets and relentless drive for success for all students.
