I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to the St Philomena's Catholic School website.


St Philomena's is a co-educational, independent school in Frinton-on-Sea within the Tendring peninsula. Whether you have been previously, or are currently associated with the school, a curious visitor or a prospective parent, I can assure you that this is a wonderful school filled with happy, enthusiastic, fulfilled children. Children who are inspired by an exceptional team of dedicated professionals, whose sole purpose it is to provide your child with the best start in life. It is a school where children flourish.


We work hard and celebrate success. We see success not just in terms of academic achievement but in creating a happy, family community, where each child can grow spiritually, emotionally and physically. We believe that each child has talents. We aim to nurture each child, helping them discover their abilities in a caring environment where they will grow in confidence. St Philomena's School educates the minds and hearts of its pupils in love, in personal and social responsibilities and in service. It challenges pupils to excel in their studies and talents. It is a school that values discipline, high standards, justice and whole-hearted dedication.


All Staff in the school recognise the precious responsibility entrusted to them by parents. I am confident that St Philomena's School is the right environment to give your child the best start in life and I invite you to visit the school to meet the children and Staff. I can assure you of a very warm welcome.
