Why Choose
Ursuline Academy?

Our Mission

We are a Catholic community of faith, love and service rooted in the spirit of St Angela. Through Christ and the Gospel and in our diverse community we strive to provide an environment for young women to flourish, spiritually, academically and socially. Together we are The Ursuline Academy Ilford.


We are a vibrant faith community inspired by our founder Angela Merici, whose motto was “Serviam” – I will SERVE. ‘Serviam’ lies at the heart of our daily routine and practice. We aim to empower our girls to learn, to lead and to serve.


The Ursuline Academy Ilford provides a learning environment that is challenging and supportive. The curriculum is designed to offer both breadth and depth. It enables the girls to leave the academy fully equipped for further study, work or a combination of both.
