Values and vision
St Wilfrid’s RC College is committed to supporting students to reach their full potential through faith and learning. It believes in enhancing relationships between all members of the community through mutual learning and respect.
The school’s vision is built on a partnership between students, teachers, parents and the wider community, who all contribute to supporting the educational process. A wide programme of activities allows each student to mature individually.
“Students receive an outstanding education that prepares them extremely well for their future. Most groups of students make consistently outstanding progress and leave with attainment that is well above that found nationally. There is a relentless focus on raising achievement for all students in the school and this is proving very successful. Much of the teaching is outstanding and is never less than good, partly as a result of the sharing of exemplary practice across the school. Teachers have expert subject knowledge and use this well to help students to learn rapidly.”
