Academic Success

St Wilfrid’s is immensely proud of the achievements of our students. They have worked extremely hard, as have the teachers that have supported them.  This combined effort has seen us increase the number of the highest grades awarded this year and reinforces our reputation as a school in which students make great progress.

Most of our students stay on into Sixth Form and a high proportion then go on to university. As well as the traditional academic courses, we are increasingly offering flexible vocational courses and a curriculum that is tailor-made to the individual student’s requirements. Our Sixth Form results continue to be amongst the highest in County with the A level performance indicators placing St Wilfrid’s Sixth Form achievement as ‘excellent’ for 3 consecutive years. This data base takes from over 1000 sixth form institutions.

We take very seriously the responsibility of working with your child in a disciplined relationship of mutual trust and discernment.
