St Ursula’s School offers an Ursuline education that is rooted in a tradition of formation and innovation which dates back to 1535, when St Angela Merici founded the Ursuline Sisters in Brescia, Italy.

Inspired by the call of the Gospel and challenged by the needs around her, Angela reached out in service and love to rich and poor alike. A true educator, she sought to “draw out” the giftedness and potential in each person. Her writings offer a philosophy of formation and education which is personal, attuned to the needs and situation of each individual, and committed to equity and to the promotion of self-discipline through encouragement rather than compulsion, and all of this in an atmosphere of unity, mutual love, and respect.

Ursuline Sisters and their collaborators in ministry continue this approach to a Catholic education and formation, which draws its life and vision from St Angela’s spirit and philosophy. Ursuline education at St Ursula’s School is rooted in the following core values:


  • Education for Excellence.
  • Respect for the Uniqueness of the Individual.
  • Development of the Whole Person.
  • Development of Community/Family Spirit.
