We have highly qualified and dedicated teaching and support staff at Our Lady of Sion. They are committed to the school’s ethos, ensuring the students in our care reach their potential in their academic studies and personal development. This is only possible with the whole community working together.

Your main point of contact, as a parent, will be your child’s tutor. Their email addresses are available on the Parent Portal. Parents are also welcome to contact any member of the Senior Leadership Team.
