About St Philomena's Catholic High School for Girls

St Philomena’s Catholic High School for Girls was established by the Daughters of the Cross. The Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross of Liège were themselves founded by Blessed Marie Thérèse Haze.  Inspired by Blessed Marie Thérèse’s dynamic courage and joy-filled service, the Daughters of the Cross undertake ministries particularly in education and healthcare. They never separate the love of God from the love of God’s people. Our school continues to have as its inspiration the spirit and traditions of the order.

This affirms our utter reliance and trust in God; we build our community with God, because of God and for God. All our accomplishments are in vain if not for God, since the house that the Lord builds will stand forever.


In everything we do, our aim is:

  • To provide an inclusive Catholic education for all students.
  • To help students grow in their love and knowledge of the Catholic faith.
  • To embrace the benefits of single sex education in a Catholic school
  • To enable growth and development of the dignity of each individual.
  • To promote the care, respect and love we show for one another as witnesses to our faith so it is possible to meet Christ in all aspects of school life.· To encourage the highest achievement and resilience in all students irrespective of their ability.
  • To endeavour to ensure that all students enjoy their years at St Philomena’s and leave with a sense of purpose equipped to face the challenges of adult life.
