Welcome from Head Teacher

Welcome to St. Wilfrid’s Catholic High School and Sixth Form College website. Our school is 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 adults and young people alike are engaged in an exciting journey of learning.

Our GCSE students celebrated some very pleasing results this year, with 67% of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both English and Maths and 42% of students achieving a grade 5 or above in both subjects.

There were many success stories, with notable achievements including:

 

  • 9 students achieving 5 or more grade 8’s or grade 9’s
  • 21 students achieving 5 or more grade 7’s or above

 

We are also pleased with an A level average point score per entry of 29.11. Many of our students performed exceptionally well and have now accepted their university offers, heading to various destinations to start their new areas of study.

We are very proud of all our students, with outstanding achievements including:

  • Seven students achieving three grades or more at A*-A
  • Eighteen students achieving three grades between A*-B
  • One student who achieving A* grades in all 4 subjects studied
  • Eight students achieving Distinction grades across all vocational subjects
  • One student achieving Distinction* grades across all subjects

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.
