Welcome to St. Wilfrid’s Catholic High School and sixth form college website. Our school is a highly successful and vibrant and we look forward to welcoming new students to our school community.
As a Catholic school, we are proud that all students are well supported in a caring Christian environment. St Wilfrid’s is a learning community, where all – adults and young people alike – are engaged in an exciting journey of learning.
This year, our Sixth Form students achieved 97.3% A-level pass rate. Students achieved a very pleasing average point score per entry of 202.47. Vocational performance was particularly exceptional, with an APS per entry of 234.61.
We are very proud of all our students including Joseph Plater who left in 2016 to read Natural Sciences at Lancaster, Sinead McCullogh who will read Languages at Bristol, Luke Taylor who will read Maths at Imperial College, Daniel Howard who will read Maths and Physics at York , Alex Drury who will study Sports journalism at Derby
Our GCSE students celebrated this Academic year with very pleasing results, where 75% of students achieved A*-C in both English and Maths
Both sets of results demonstrate the hard work and endeavour of all in our school community.
The Sixth Form College provides a range of courses. Achievement is high and the majority of A-level and BTEC (Vocational) students go on to study courses at university. We are fortunate to have a bespoke sixth form centre where, we aim to provide an adult environment, fully supported by highly qualified and experienced staff. We particularly welcome Sixth Form students from other schools and colleges across the region.
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, show you the work of the school, the support for each individual, and our commitment to achieve the very best for all students.
Helen Gilroy, Headteacher.
