The Curriculum

A broad and liberal curriculum which prepares pupils well for the ISEB Common Pre-Test, Common Entrance and scholarships, integrated within a broad introduction to three pillars – artistry, discovery and civic structure – of some of the great civilisations of world history.

Games & The Arts

The school makes full use of its facilities at Barn Elms where the boys take part in a variety of sports two afternoons a week including: cricket, rugby, hockey, athletics and cross-country. Music is an intrinsic part of school life, and there is a strong choral tradition. Plenty of extra-curricular activities are available, with a wide variety of clubs on offer from cricket and fencing to ornithology and astronomy.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is particularly strong with excellent individualised support in a caring environment with a strong Catholic ethos. Parents often say that the school feels like an extended family.

Recent Scholarships

Eton, Harrow, City of London, Charterhouse, Worth School and Ampleforth.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We are a Catholic school and our patron Saint Philip is the patron saint of happiness, joy and humour. Whether it be in the classroom, at our vast games fields by the side of the Thames, or in our wonderful garden back at base, we put fun at the heart of everything we do. Our boys work hard, and are well-taught within a bespoke and broad liberal curriculum. They leave Saint Philip’s aged 13 ready for the next stage of their education at some of the leading schools in the country.

Outstanding Characteristics

Inspirational teaching in a warm and nurturing environment that delivers exceptional results. Leavers go on to: City of London, Dulwich, Eton, Harrow, KCS Wimbledon, St Paul’s, Westminster, Winchester.
