"I am currently in my second year at St Wilfrid’s after joining as an NQT in September 2017 and have loved teaching here. The staff here are very welcoming and are always happy to offer advice and support. St Wilfrid’s strong school community spirit is what sticks out the most and the money raised each year for the school charities is exceptional. St Wilfrid’s Catholic school is a fantastic school to be a part of and the consistent positive atmosphere makes for a great working environment.” B Middleditch (Geography)
“I was surprised by how quickly I settled into school life at St Wilfrid’s. The staff have been so welcoming and friendly, it’s like I’ve been here for years already. The culture and ethos of the school is well established across all areas of school life and it has been a delight to get to know my students so well. Being immersed into a small community with an encouraging team has allowed me to get involved in many different activities around the school, and develop my practice in new ways.” L Spence (Maths)
“I knew after ten minutes of walking round St Wilfrid’s that it was a special place and, since working here, my opinion hasn’t changed. I instantly felt part of a community, thanks to the friendly and supportive staff who have created such a lovely working atmosphere. Students are kind and respectful and staff take pride in providing a positive and rewarding environment for them. It’s a pleasure to come into work every day.” R Donnelly (MFL)
