Welcome to Whitefriars School

We are proud to be a unique and exceptional oversubscribed all-through school with over 1500 children from Nursery to Sixth Form.

Our mission is to provide an exceptional educational experience for our students, staff and families. Thus, fostering ambitious, highly skilled and educated positive citizens for our community. What makes us special is how we work as a unified community in pursuit of this mission.

We prepare every child for the changing world we live in. A world which is more global, more driven by technology, a world where anything is possible with the right preparation and unwavering positive attitude. That means providing a World Class Curriculum and exceptional learning experience that reflects the highest academic standards. One that inspires and enthuses pupils through its creativity and openness to the world around us. We are unashamedly an outcome driven school, as education gives opportunity and choice that is imperative with an ever-changing world.

Through enrichment events and activities that improve learning, here at Whitefriars, we will endeavour to provide students with a well-rounded and culturally rich education throughout the year celebrating diversity and unity. 

Our children will be able to ‘be the change they want to see in the world’, and ‘courageous, to be the light where there is darkness’. Our children will be resilient, optimistic, respectful, honest and well-rounded positive citizens, with an eternal love of learning. At the same time, we are all also members of our communities, places where we find friendship, support and common endeavour. Being at the heart of our communities is a hallmark of Whitefriars School; we are relentless in our pursuit to serve our community, that only deserves the best.

We only employ excellent staff, who can deliver an inspirational learning experience for every child; every day. 

We want our children and young people to have a sense of deep belonging, knowing the importance of ‘giving back’ and the value of community and togetherness to their everyday lives. As a Trust, we will foster a culture that respects diversity, safeguards our children’s wellbeing and recognises that we are stronger together than we are apart. In pursuing this vision staff, Trustees and Directors will model this every day, knowing that each one of us plays a part in making it a reality for every child and young person in our care.

We look forward to meeting you at our Open Evening or one of our Open Mornings – a very warm welcome awaits you.
