Spiritual Life

Since 1888 the Convent of Jesus & Mary has benefited from a strong Catholic ethos which lies at the heart of everything we do. The school was founded then by a small group of French nuns who had come to England in 1860, inspired by the values of their foundress, St Claudine Thévenet: service, education, forgiveness, family spirit, simplicity and love of Jesus and Mary.

St Claudine’s vision was to provide an exceptional education for girls. Inspired by that vision, our whole school, staff and students, strive to live out St. Claudine’s values.

The majority of our school community are Catholic. Staff and students of other faith traditions are a vital part of the school community, supporting and participating in our spiritual life.

In this part of our website, we invite you to explore the ways we live out our Catholic life together.
