Message from the Chair of the Academy Council :

Dear Parents and Pupils,

Contrary to rumours on social media, which are totally unfounded, St Wilfrid's still remains as a thriving and successful High School. We will close for the summer and re-open on Tuesday  1st September. I'd like to wish you all a happy, safe and restful holiday. We look forward to seeing you in September.

With kindest regards

Christine Green

Chair of the Academy Council.





St. Wilfrid’s is a highly successful and vibrant school and Sixth Form College. In 2013, our Year 11 students achieved 99% 5 A*-G GCSE grades and 74% 5 A*-C including English and Maths and this represents excellent achievement. GCSE results in 2014 are also very good, with 75% achieving 5 A*-C and 71% 5 A*-C including English and Maths (best grades) - significantly above the national figures, which also represents excellent achievement.

The Sixth Form College provides an extensive and enviable range of courses.  Achievement in 2013 and 2014 was very high and the majority of 'A' level and BTEC (Vocational) students went on to study courses at university.  Recently, there has been significant investment into the Sixth Form College environment and buildings in order to support students to achieve their best.  We aim to provide an adult environment, fully supported by highly qualified and experienced staff. The Sixth Form of 400 is large enough to provide an excellent range of courses as well as individual support to ensure each student achieves their very best.  We particularly welcome Sixth Form students from other schools and colleges across the region.
As a Catholic school, we are proud that all students are well supported in a caring Christian environment.  St Wilfrid’s aims to be a true learning community, where all – adults and young people alike are engaged in an exciting journey of learning. 
We welcome all students throughout the 11-19 age range - we are open to anyone of any faith or of none, but our faith has a positive influence on our approach.  It means that we have built a community of people who support each other, who see more in life and themselves than superficial values, who want to develop themselves as people.  We provide the setting for young adults to question concepts whilst growing in knowledge and faith.  We are building a community of young adults who recognise and appreciate the value of each other’s company, who feel a sense of responsibility and care for others and who are willing to give something of themselves for the happiness and the improvement of the broader community.
You are welcome to visit us anytime.  Please contact reception and we would be delighted to meet with you, particularly if you are interested in supporting our community of learners either as a pupil, parent, member of staff, or working in partnership with us.
