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.

GCSE Results 2017

St Wilfrid’s students have achieved some excellent results this year with a high number of students making excellent progress. The school remains committed to ensuring that every child is given the opportunity to maximise their progress across a broad and balanced curriculum. As such we work hard to create a curriculum which allows students to access courses that meet their needs and allow them to excel in subjects in which they are passionate about.

We have also had some stand out performances from students who have achieved 7 or more A*/A grades (or equivalent) including Oliver Colbran, Liam Draddy, Annie Bell, Vienna Cooper, Morgan Hayward, Megan Mackey, Andrea Dean and Zereh Pam.

This year also sees the introduction of the new numeric system of grading for English and Maths. To gain one Grade 9 is exceptional but to gain 3 is phenomenal, congratulations therefore must go to Oliver Colbran for this amazing feat. Liam Draddy came a close second with two, with many others, including some of those already named, gaining one.
