At Austin Friars St Monica’s we are committed to the pursuit of outstanding teaching and learning and to optimising the outcomes of our students. In our learning environment where class sizes are small, academic achievement underpins all that we do, and our outstanding results speak for themselves.

We work hard to create the conditions in which all students can achieve their best in a wide and varied range of subjects. The School is justifiably proud of its reputation for high academic standards.Our students are provided with every opportunity to develop their talents to the full, growing up in a happy and fulfilling environment where all are valued and encouraged. Academic success at all levels across 3 - 18 age range, in GCSE and A level examinations and in the achievement of our Sixth Formers in securing higher education places at good universities have established Austin Friars St Monica’s as the top co-educational School in Cumbria.

Educating the ‘whole’ person. We are proud of the very successful, all round education which the School provides. Beyond the classroom, an extensive extra curricular programme provides the opportunities which are so vital for a well-rounded education.We aim to provide for the education of the whole person. Music, drama, creative and physical activity are integral to the curriculum alongside the pursuit of academic excellence.Individual success is celebrated and healthy competition encouraged. Our students look around and know that their contribution in the classroom or laboratory, on the stage or in the choir, on the games field or in a leadership role is greatly valued. What they also know is that by trying hard, with the guidance of their teachers, they can make a real difference to the life of the School.
