Ursuline College (formerly Ursuline Convent School[1]) is a Catholic Sports College located in Westgate-on-Sea, in north-east Kent, England, United Kingdom. Aimed at pupils aged 11 to 19, the college is based within the Ursuline and Catholic ethos, aiding and teaching its pupils within this regime.

Ursuline College Westgate-on-Sea History

The school in Westgate-on-Sea was established in 1904 when a group of Ursuline Sisters fled Boulogne-sur-Mer with a number of their pupils. Although their school in Boulogne-sur-Mer had existed since 1624, laws passed in France had made it impossible for the Sisters to continue their work of Christian education in France.[2]

Initially the school was set up as a boarding school for girls, meeting the needs of parents working in the Colonies or serving in the Forces.[2] The school was based on the Ursuline movement, or, moreover, the Ursuline Community, which in turn was inherited from the actions of Angela Merici in Italy in 1535.

In 1995, following the sudden closure of the neighbouring St Augustine’s College (a Catholic independent day and boarding school for boys), the school became coeducational.[2]

In mid-1998, due to social and local pressures from members of the prospective public, the school was reborn as an aided comprehensive for children aged 11 to 19. A separate school, St. Angela's, was born out of this disconnection, still providing a private education for its younger students.

Over the ensuing decade, the school became increasingly involved with sport, specifically football and netball, and in 2006 became a Catholic Comprehensive Specialist Sports College.

Ursuline College Westgate-on-Sea Ursuline mission statement and sisterhood

As part of the Ursuline regime, the school's mission statement includes the promotion of a generic positive regime and environment for its students.

Furthermore, the college relishes its sisterhood with the Ursulines and maintains good working relations with the other colleges, which can include foreign student exchange programs.

Ursuline College Westgate-on-Sea Campus

The school includes the grade II listed Hatton House,[3] which was built in 1886 as the home of William Jarrett, a tea planter[4] and a chapel and cloisters constructed of Kentish ragstone.

The school is currently made up of four buildings (and a fifth for St. Angela's Junior School):

  • The main building
  • The new building
  • The music block
  • The sports centre
  • St. Angela's (now separate school)
