St Wilfrid’s Core Values
The Core Values of St Wilfrid’s are: Hard work; Excellence; Aspire and Achieve; Respect and Thrive. This is captured in the mnemonic HEART. In these core values, we take inspiration and encouragement from other key Christian figures, especially Blessed John Henry Newman ‘Heart speaks unto Heart.’
“The Lord does not look at the things humans look at. Humans look at outward appearance, but the Lord God looks at the HEART.” (1 Sam 16:7)
At St Wilfrid’s we support pupils in setting their hearts on things that are pure and pleasing to God: To be hardworking; to reach excellence; to aspire and to achieve everything they set their hearts upon; to show respect for themselves, to others and to the environment; and to thrive way beyond the walls and gates of this school. Pupils will be encouraged to strive to be the best version of themselves by being a genuine human being, looking for ways to excel and take on new challenges head on, looking for ways to grow, so that they can build a bigger and brighter future.
