Description of the school

St. Philomena’s is a large 11 to 18 Catholic comprehensive school for girls. About half of the students live in the borough of Sutton and the remainder come from neighbouring London boroughs. Approximately one third of students are from minority ethnic groups. The percentage of students with English as an additional language is well below the national average. A small number of students receive specialist support for statements of special educational needs or additional help for a wide range of learning needs. The school has had technology specialist status since 1997 and gained a dual specialism with languages in 2006. It was awarded the Healthy Schools Award in May 2007.
