Dear Students, Parents, Families,
I am delighted that you are interested in getting to know Our Lady's Grammar School. This website will give you a glimpse into the rich full life of a very special school.
Our Lady's is a very long established school. We were founded in 1887 and we are very proud of our history and our traditions. We have built up very strong links over the years with all the communities, which we serve, and, in our current school population, we have pupils from over fifty different Primary Schools.
Our pupils, therefore, have marvellous opportunities to meet new friends and, indeed we believe that the very positive affirming relationship, which exists between the pupils, teachers and parents of Our Lady's, are central to the ethos of this school.
As a Catholic School, we work to build upon the values of home and foster a strong sense of faith and belief in all of our pupils. The Mercy tradition of service is also very important to us and all pupils play a part in helping others - in school, in their local communities, in areas of need throughout the world. We encourage every girl in Our Lady's to see herself as a citizen of the future, a citizen of the world.
Our Lady's has, of course a superb record of academic success. At GCSE and A Level our pupils achieve outstanding grades, the result of their ability, their hard work, the support they receive from home and the expertise, dedication and inspiration of their teachers. The staff in this school nurture each pupil so that every girl can fulfil her academic and personal potential.
Our Lady's is, above all a happy school, a place where pupils are expected to work hard but where they will also find friendship, enrichment and fun. Our beautiful and superbly equipped school is designed for the 21st Century and we are confident that every girl who comes to us will be well prepared for the exciting challenges of her life.
M.T. Geraldine Pettigrew (Ms)
