St. Margaret Convent School

About the school: 

We pride ourselves as having a happy, hardworking, family atmosphere, supportive parents, and professional and experienced staff, and the highest expectations. Children are encouraged to treat others with respect and to value the skills and talents of all. We believe we are an excellent school. Our most recent reviews from parents and local educational counsel, described us as a good school, with pupils making good progress in all parts of the school. We were judged good for pupil achievement, quality of teaching, behavior and leadership. Parents play a very valuable part in the life of the school and the success of the children. We aim to build on what parents have achieved at home and to act as supportive partners to produce happy and successful children.
