The Ursuline Academy Ilford is a community which serves both God and the individual. In the light of gospel values we will nurture and support each other towards the fulfilment of our true potential.
The Ursuline Academy Ilford is a four forms of entry Catholic Academy for girls aged 11-19, situated in the London Borough of Redbridge and serving the needs of the Diocese of Brentwood. Students who come here join a community that is committed to success. The school was founded by the Ursuline Order in 1903 and has been serving the needs of the local community here in Ilford ever since. It continues to provide support for students that is recognised for its excellence. The school has a strong sense of community underpinned by Catholic Christian values.
Visitors regularly remark on the purposeful working atmosphere in which all are expected to do their best. The schools motto 'I will serve' lies at the heart of our daily routine and practice. We have an inclusive and community-focused ethos of which we are very proud. Our pupils are welcoming, engaging and articulate. They are ambitious for the school and for their own life beyond it.
Each year the school reserves three forms of entry (90 students) for students from Catholic families and one form (30 students) for students from other faith backgrounds. The students are of course not taught along these lines, rather each class in Year 7 contains a mixture of students from Catholic and non-Catholic backgrounds.
