Welcome to the Ursuline College, a Specialist Sports College and Roman Catholic Aided comprehensive school for pupils aged 11 to 19 years. Applications are also welcomed from pupils of other denominations who are seeking an education based on Gospel values.

Our Ethos derives from the Mission Statement and permeates the whole school, promoting an excellent sense of community, positive attitudes to work and discipline, and a very good partnership with parents. There is a strongly supportive Parents’ and Friends’ Association and parents are welcome to social events, open days, carol services, plays, concerts, art exhibitions and sports fixtures in addition to Parents’ Meetings in order to keep close touch with all that goes on within the College.

Our History: though newly opened in 1998 as an aided comprehensive school, The Ursuline College has a history going back 100 years to 1904 when the Ursulines established their school in Westgate and beyond that to the formation of the Ursuline Community by St Angela Merici in Italy in 1535.


Our Mission, inspired by the teachings of St Angela Merici, who founded the Ursuline Order, is to follow the tradition of Ursuline education in seeking the highest standards for all our pupils.

In an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust and care, we work together to serve the local community and the diocese.

Through encouragement and discipline we enable each individual to grow spiritually and intellectually in order to make a unique and positive contribution to society.


Welcome to the Prospectus of the Ursuline College Sixth Form Centre with details of our extensive range of courses. We hope that you will be joining us at the start of the new academic year, and that your time here will be happy, successful and of lasting value in every way.

We aim to ensure that all students who join us in the Sixth Form receive a high quality education. We offer a very full and varied curriculum, with excellent teaching, learning and extra-curricular opportunities to enable you to achieve your personal best whatever your abilities and ambitions.

The Ursuline College is new, opened in September 1998 as a Voluntary Aided Catholic comprehensive school, yet at the same time it has a history which stretches back to the formation of the Order of St Ursula by St Angela Merici in Italy in 1535.

This history has shaped the character and ethos of the present school giving it the stability and continuity of belonging to the Ursuline educational tradition, and the confidence to be forward-looking, with a constant programme of development and self-improvement. The College has the chapel and the convent at its centre. The religious community lives, works and worships on site, ensuring the school is rooted in the priorities of Christian life.

Noted for its friendly atmosphere and pleasant location in 16 acres of wooded grounds, the College currently has 160 students in the rapidly expanding Sixth Form, who come from across East Kent and beyond. A 'typical' Ursuline Sixth Former might have been at the College since Year 7, or have recently joined us from another school or college to study extra GCSEs, GNVQ Intermediate, AS and A Levels, Vocational A Levels, PE Coaching Qualification or a mixture of these.

Our wide ability Sixth Form, with its supportive pastoral structure and wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities, offers opportunities for one, two or three year programmes of study and clear progression routes into Higher Education. As part of the 16+ Thanet Consortium of six schools and Thanet College, the Ursuline is able to offer other course choices in consortium schools.
