I am delighted to welcome you to the website of Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School.

Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School is a co-educational comprehensive school for pupils aged 11-18 years in the Diocese of Southwark and the London Borough of Wandsworth. The school is highly successful and well-respected with a proven record of high academic standards taught in a caring, supportive and distinctly Christian environment.

The school respects the unique contribution which every individual can make to the community and seeks to place this contribution within a clear structure which both embraces the highest possible academic aspirations and accepts individual differences in ability, aptitude and level of skills. Saint Cecilia’s is primarily a learning community and its culture of teaching and learning unlocks pupils’ potential for self-fulfillment and prepares them to take their place within adult life as well-rounded responsible and caring people.

At the heart of the school is its Christian foundation, where Jesus Christ is reflected in every aspect of school life. This is true in the relationships we build, the choices we make, the attitudes we adopt and the goals for which we strive, and as a Christian school we are proud to declare that we exist to “Glorify God Through Outstanding, Enjoyable Education”.
