Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School is smaller than average. Students are drawn from the northern part of Croydon and several other neighbouring boroughs. Most students are baptised Roman Catholics and practising members of the Church. In the sixth form there is an ecumenical grouping with strong Muslim representation. About three quarters of the students are from minority ethnic groups. The largest of these groups is Black African but almost all other ethnic groups are represented in the remainder of the school population. The proportion of students learning English as an additional language is well above the national average; very few are in the early stages. Fewer students than usual have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. These are mostly in the areas of specific learning (dyslexia) and social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. There are around 300 students in the sixth form, although about one third of these receive their education at Thomas More Catholic School, for whom the school acts as a franchise. The quality of education for these students is not included in this report. The school has been a mathematics and computing specialist college since 2002. There is also independently managed provision in the St Mary's Family Centre, which is located on the school site, for breakfast and after school clubs and a day nursery.
