What says..

The school has strong links with the parish – it celebrates a number of religious festivals and the local priest visits the school regularly. At Holy Communion, children process from school to church, a day rounded off with a visit to the ice cream van. Creative writing is strong and pupils do variety of science, history and geography projects each term. Older children practise verbal and non-verbal reasoning for the Wandsworth 11+ tests and are taught how to write timed essays. Impressive PE programme offers a range of sporting activities...

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2011, Mrs Deirdre McDonald BA PGCE NQPH (40s). After studying English at university, Mrs McDonald worked in publishing, then decided to train as a teacher. She has a long association with the school – she was a governor and taught year 6 for eight years before becoming deputy head and more recently head. Her own children are now at university but attended Our Lady of Victories. Forward thinking and inclusive – parents say she is a caring and committed head who’s available to all families as and when they need her assistance. Her background in publishing and interest in literature and language has inspired and influenced many school activities. Definitely an artsy type, she enjoys cinema, theatre, reading and travel.


Priority to Catholics in all categories; siblings only get preference if parents still regular...

Special Education Needs

Class teachers automatically differentiate all work presented to the children, and in this way the less able are supported and the more able are extended and challenged. Where the class teacher feels the child is not making appropriate progress, the advice and support of the special needs teacher is sought. At this stage the child may well be withdrawn from class two or three times a week for small group help. This help and support is offered in literacy and/or numeracy. Children who receive extra support in this way are placed on the special needs register, so that their progress may be tracked and evaluated. The school has the services of an educational psychologist, who visits each half term and can assess individual pupils and meet with parents.
