Welcome from the Headteacher


Welcome to the official website of The Ursuline Preparatory School Ilford. I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all visitors, pupils, parents and members of our school community. As the Headteacher of The Ursuline Prep School, I am privileged to lead a dedicated team of staff who are committed to providing the highest quality education and fostering a nurturing and inclusive learning environment.

At The Ursuline Prep Ilford, we are deeply rooted in the Ursuline tradition and guided by the values of the Serviam pledge. Serviam, meaning "I will serve" in Latin, encapsulates our commitment to service and the development of responsible and compassionate individuals.

In line with the Serviam pledge, we strive to provide a holistic education, which in turn delivers academic excellence that extends beyond the success within the learning environment. Success is what we expect for every pupil in our care. Therefore, we provide our pupils with the skills and knowledge that they require in order to achieve their full potential.

We encourage our pupils to understand the importance of serving others, making a positive difference in our school, local community, and the wider world. Through various initiatives and community partnerships, our students not only learn about social responsibility but also develop empathy, kindness and a lifelong commitment to service.

As an Ursuline school, we ‘serve’ within the ‘7 golden rules’ of the Serviam Pledge. Those are as follows:

As a school community, we value open communication, collaboration, and the active involvement of parents and families. We believe in building strong partnerships between home and school, recognising that together we can provide the best possible support and educational experiences for our pupils.

Our website aims to provide you with a comprehensive overview of our school, our curriculum, extracurricular activities and the wide range of opportunities available to our pupils at The Ursuline Prep. It is designed to keep you informed about important updates, school events and celebrations of our pupil's achievements.

I invite you to explore our website and discover the vibrant and nurturing environment that The Ursuline Prep School offers.

Should you have any inquiries or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working together as we journey with your child through their primary school years, empowering them to reach their full potential and live out the spirit of Serviam.
