St.Wilfrid's is a Roman Catholic Specialist College in Mathematics and Computing,offering a broad and balanced curriculum, where each and every pupil is an equally valued member of our community. The culture of our school is based distinctively on Gospel values, which are reflected in everything we do. 

We encourage pupils to demonstrate high levels of commitment and co-operation while all members of staff endeavour to provide maximum opportunities for learning and progression within a secure and safe environment. 

Our education philosophy is based strongly on partnership where home, school, parish and the wider community work closely together to provide maximum support to the educational process.
