How We Achieve Academic Success

Our consistently exceptional performance is a result of years of developing our curriculum, hours of passionate and devoted work from our teaching staff, and dedication in our belief to deliver a balanced environment for learning that provides the nurturing space students need to succeed.

Our Ethos

For over a hundred years we've maintained a caring and kind ethos with high behavioural standards that have meant St Gerard's operates as more than just an educational institution. Our school community is focused on developing strong moral and ethical values to help nurture and develop analytical, critical and compassionate thinkers who can change the world around them.

Personalised Education

We believe in the power of personalised education. Small class sizes in both our Senior and Junior School programs allow us to give each student the attention they need. This approach is key to our students' remarkable achievements in both GCSE and A-level exams.

Ensuring our students develop in their own way extends to the supporting activities we provide outside of the curriculum. While academic excellence is our priority, we want to help the students become well-rounded individuals through holistic development.

To do this, we provide a range of extra-curricular activities that complements our academic rigour to help challenge and channel our students efforts into new and engaging experiences.
