About Our School

The school is named after St. Jude, a faithful servant, martyr and apostle of Jesus. St. Jude has traditionally become known as the “saint of lost causes”. His Feast Day is celebrated on October 28. St. Jude School is located in the Westmount area of London. The school population is a blend of socio-economic backgrounds with some ESL students from various nations. The catchment area is south side of Commissioners Rd, West side of Wharncliffe Road; and Bugle Place / Stuvesant and north side of Southdale Road W.


The original building was built in 1964 and consisted of 6 classrooms. An addition of 6 classrooms, library, staff room & gymnasium was completed in 1968. The most recent addition, completed in August 2008, consists of 3 classrooms. The gym has a portable stage and lights and ample storage space. The lower primary wing, once an open concept, is now 5 separate, enclosed classrooms. A new playground was installed in 2008. ​

Living Our Faith

There is a strong relationship with the Parish Community and staff of the Springbank Family of Schools and St. John the Divine Church in particular. The youth minister, pastor and any seminarian students assigned to the parish will visit the school regularly this school year. Sacramental preparation and monthly masses are a focus of the faith community and partnership of our school, your home, and our church.
St. Jude School has welcomed Co-op students from Catholic Central and Fanshawe College, as well at Teacher Candidates from many different Teachers' Colleges. Guest speakers from the community are invited to speak to our students and/or parent community on topics and current issues of interest. There is a very active Catholic School Council at St. Jude, London, which works closely with our school providing input, resources, and enrichment activities for our students.
