We welcome all our students and their families to Whitefriars School Secondary Section

Whitefriars School is a member of the Heathland Whitefriars Federation. In recognition of the federation’s outstanding leadership (OFSTED 2010, 2012 and 2014) and high performance (Whitefriars school is in the top 100 schools nationally), the government fully funded us to open a new secondary section making Whitefriars a fully integrated 3 to 19 through school.

This is the third year of a very exciting journey and with our new state-of-the-art building and experienced and well-qualified staff, we are now offering our first Key Stage 3 students the best possible start to their secondary education.

Our students make rapid progress in an environment of love and care without bells and detentions. Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, values are positive, forgiveness is abundant and children are treasured. We believe that anyone can learn anything and the growth mindset underpins everything we do.

Our extensive facilities include art and drama studios, modern science labs, a large music centre, digital media studios, a well-equipped sports hall, spacious theatre, class-leading facilities for catering and horticultural science and an attractive dining area. We also offer every secondary student their own iPad to manage their learning, timetable, home learning and feedback from teachers.

We look forward to working closely with each and every one of you to find friendship, fun and success as we build a bright future together. We love our schools and we hope you enjoy our website.
