St Gerard’s School is a co-educational independent school for pupils aged 4 to 18. 
We have a junior school and senior school with classes from reception all the way up to sixth form study.

The senior school is housed in the original Convent House, together with a purpose-built extension and a recently-built block of additional classrooms located at the rear of the main building. 

The junior school is located in a separate building on Convent Lane, adjacent to the senior school, and is purpose-built. 

The school benefits from a number of specialist rooms in order to deliver the modern secondary school curriculum effectively.   

Academic and pastoral care are important to all staff within the school and its size enables us to keep in close touch with all aspects of the progress of our young people.  St Gerard’s prides itself on its broad academic intake; young people of every level of ability find themselves able to make substantial progress.  However, the school does not claim to have special needs provision. 

The happy, secure environment and effective learning atmosphere are aspects of the school that visitors invariably comment upon and we have been fortunate to have this positive feature highlighted in every inspection.  These inspections have also commented on ‘the exemplary behaviour of pupils’.

The school operates both an anti-bullying policy and a complaints’ procedure, copies of which are available from the general office on request. 

Our history

St Gerard's stands in its own grounds. Founded in 1915 by the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy as a girls' day and boarding school, it moved to its current location in 1917. It has been a fully co-educational day school since the early 1980s and in 1990, a trust was formed with the first lay headteacher appointed in 1991.

St Gerard's aims to create a Christian setting in which every young person has the opportunity to make the most of his or her individual gifts, laying the firm foundation of a successful future, within a caring community.

We seek the all-round development - academic, social and spiritual - of all pupils in our care, aiming for the highest standards each can attain, equipping them as fully as possible for their life beyond school. We wish to help pupils develop as happy, confident people whose contribution to society as adults will be responsible, positive, disciplined and unselfish.

We have a particular commitment to:

The school is a member of  the ISA and WISC under the umbrella of  the ISC.
