Welcome from the Head of College
I am so pleased that you are going to join our College community. It is important to me and the rest of our College team that you feel part of the life of the College, as it will be your additional home for the time that you are living and studying at Roehampton.
The Society of the Sacred Heart founded the College in 1874 and the commitment to the education of young people shown by the Sisters is as important now as it was then. The ethos of the College is based on social justice and equality, and all Digby Stuart students and staff can expect to be treated with dignity and kindness. Building on the lifelong commitment of the Sisters, we work towards creating a community of acceptance, love and justice where all students can find a place to flourish and learn from each other.
The College team is here to support all your endeavours, both academic and personal. Co-curricular activity can be as rewarding as study and there are lots of opportunities to find out about new things through volunteering, sports, and College Cup challenges. We are also here to support you if you face any kind of difficulty or challenge. If there is anything that is troubling you, we want to hear about it and help to put things right.
You belong to a thriving, growing College that you can be proud of now and in the future.
We look forward to welcoming you properly when you arrive.
Dr Gulliver Ralston
Head of Digby Stuart College
