St Wilfrid’s Catholic High & Sixth Form, Featherstone

St Wilfrid’s is a highly successful, vibrant school. We look forward to welcoming new students to our school community. we are extremely proud of all our students and their achievements, which are testimony to their dedication, hard work, drive and ambition.

In 2017, we were very pleased and proud of our Year 11 students, with 71.22% of students achieving 5 grades A*-C and 71% achieving the threshold in English and Maths.

The Sixth Form College provides an extensive and enviable range of courses. Achievement in 2013 was very high and the majority of ‘A’ level students went on to study courses at university. Recently there has been significant investment into the Sixth Form College environment and buildings in order to support students to achieve their best. We aim to provide an adult environment, fully supported by highly qualified and experienced staff. The Sixth Form of 400 is large enough to provide an excellent range of courses as well as individual support to ensure each student achieves their very best. We particularly welcome Sixth Form students from schools and colleges across the region.

As a Catholic school, we are proud that all students are well supported in a caring Christian environment. St Wilfrid’s aims to be a true learning community, where all – adults and young people alike are engaged in an exciting journey of learning.

We welcome all students throughout the 11 – 19 age range – we are open to anyone of any faith or 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, particularly if you are interested in supporting our community of learners either as a pupil, parent, member of staff, or working in partnership with us.
