What says..

Tall Victorian buildings with lots of stairs, however, good-sized classrooms, beautifully decorated; the school has gold Artsmark. Displays show that even the tiny children have beautiful handwriting. Younger horticulturalists grow many colourful flowers and shrubs through the gardening club which they organise themselves. Food is often on the agenda, as the school has Food for Life Award, everything is cooked on site and where possible locally sourced. Encouraged to be involved in the school community, parents run cookery classes...

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 September 2016, Chris McPhilemy, previously acting head teacher (and before that deputy head) at St Mary's Catholic School in Wimbledon.


Pupils come from the parishes of Our Lady of Victories, Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St Simon Stock. Priority goes to baptised, practising Catholics; all applications must be supported by letter from the parish priest. Siblings of families living within the parish boundaries get priority. Random allocation is used to offer places to other applicants. Children attending the nursery are not automatically guaranteed a place in the reception class, which is always oversubscribed. Contact the school for occasional places in older age groups.

Special Education Needs

We have a SENCo who has been in post for 10 years. She works with all the outside agencies including the educational psychology service, school nurse, and speech and language provision. We have a teacher who supports the more able children. They both work alongside classroom teachers in a supportive role. We have six children with Statements of Special Educational Needs. Two of these children have individual teacher support as part of their statement. We have SEN support which is small group withdrawal or the SEN teacher working alongside the class teacher. We also have gifted and talented support in maths and English.
