La Sainte Union was founded in 1861 by the Sisters of La Sainte Union, who are its Trustees, to provide an education for children of Catholic families.

La Sainte Union is a voluntary aided comprehensive school for girls aged 11-19 and boys in the Sixth Form.  

Catholic identity is the focus of all we do and we strive to provide a welcoming, supportive and dynamic environment in which pupils can realise their potential within a strong community of pupils, parents, governors and staff. We seek to ensure that each pupil feels a sense of belonging and a deep commitment to the Gospel values of tolerance, respect and compassion.  We focus on educating the whole person, academically, socially, spiritually and morally through a curriculum centred on the needs and aspirations of all pupils.  Catholic doctrine and practice permeates every aspect of the school's activities.  It is essential that the Catholic character of the school's education is supported by all families in the school. All parents/carers and pupils are, therefore, expected to give their full, unreserved and positive support for the aims and ethos of the school. 

Our pupils are drawn from a wide area and come from many London Boroughs.  The school is consistently over-subscribed and is a high achieving school, offering an academic curriculum.   Whenever there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants, in strict accordance with the Over-subscription Criteria set out in the school's Admission Policy, which can be accessed below.

A "Certificate of Catholic Practice" means a certificate given by the families parish priest, or the priest in charge of the Church where the family practises in the form laid down by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.

This can include an Assistant Priest and where necessary with the advice of a senior member of the Parish community.

Following Diocesan guidelines, the Certificate of Catholic Practice is not issued by the school.  It should be obtained from your Parish Priest.
