Virgo Fidelis school to close

The Roman Catholic secondary school for girls on Central Hill SE19 1RS is planning to close in August 2021.

Admissions were suspended for year 7 students in September 2020. Year 8 , 9 & 11  students are attending the Virgo Fidelis site but Year 10 students are attending St Marys in West Croydon CR9 2EE

Virgo Fidelis no longer has a 6th form and pupil rolls have been falling recently – with a  corresponding impact on school budgets. The Victorian buildings date back to 1848 and so are exepensive to repair.

Croydon council is consulting on the closure – to have a say  fill in the form linked below before the deadline of Oct 23rd.
