We welcome all our students and their families to Whitefriars School

We have expanded Whitefriars School in our landmark new building so that we can offer a new nursery, more primary places, specialist subject teaching to primary pupils from both our schools and an outstanding secondary education for 11 to 19 year old students!

In May 2018 OFSTED graded our school as outstanding. 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.

We are in a federation with Heathland School which was judged to be outstanding by OFSTED in 2010 and again in 2014. Our staff team continuously strives to find engaging and innovative ways to help our children learn and develop as individuals. We build close partnerships with families and celebrate success together.

Please take time to read through the information and guidance on our Letters Page to keep yourselves up to date

How can my child continue to learn from home if they need to self-isolate?
We have a dedicated ‘Learning from Home’ page where you can find lots of activities for your children to do while at home. There will be additional learning provided if for any reason we need to close a class or year group.

 How will the school keep in touch?
