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

Whitefriars School is a member of the Heathland Whitefriars Federation. In September 2015, in recognition of the Federation’s outstanding leadership, we opened our new secondary section. With our new state-of-the-art building and experienced and well-qualified staff, we are now offering our first students the best possible start to their secondary education.

In May 2018 OFSTED graded our school as outstanding:

‘Pupils from a diverse range of backgrounds are welcomed into the school. They receive the support and encouragement they need to excel’.

‘High quality teaching ensures that pupils continue to make exceptional progress in Key Stage 3’.

‘Pupils’ attitudes towards learning are exceptional’.

‘The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. The school is a calm, orderly place’.

‘All pupils are seen as individuals. Staff go out of their way to ensure all pupils are fully included in school’.

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 mind-set underpins everything we do.

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.
