Lower School: Reception – Year 6

The Lower School is based on the same site and enjoys the same facilities as the Upper School. In addition, in years 3 to 6 (Owls), Art, Science & PE and are taught by the specialist school staff thus ensuring a smooth and effective transition to the Upper School.

We currently have three classes: Pre-Prep, Hawks and Owls. Pre-Prep is a nursery class. Hawks are a combination of Reception to Year 2 pupils (Key Stage 1) and follow the National Curriculum. Owls are a combination of Year 3 to Year 6 pupils (Key Stage 2).

St Wilfrid’s aims to provide a caring and stimulating environment whereby all pupils are encouraged to develop their full potential. We have a happy school, with a friendly atmosphere: our classes are small and our staff are well qualified and friendly. There is a strong sense of security and discipline, which ensures our children acquire skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

We place a high priority on pastoral care and all teachers take a professional interest in the development of the children in their care. Our favourable staff/pupil ratio ensures that all our pupils enjoy individual care and learn the value of showing concern for each other.
