Short History

The foundation of St Vincent de Paul RC Primary School dates back to 1859 when the school was founded by the Sisters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.In June 1859, Sister Marie Chatelain, who had nursed in the Crimea with Florence Nightingale, arrived in London with a small band of Sisters. The Sisters moved into 8 York Street (now known as Petty France) and on 19 July 1859, at a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Wiseman, the first child was admitted. The Sisters established an orphanage as well as a day school for local Catholic children, which continued to grow when the Sisters moved to Park Street and then to Carlisle Place.
