In September 2015 we opened our brand-new secondary section, making Whitefriars a fully integrated 3 to 18 through school. With our new state-of-the-art building and experienced and well-qualified staff, we are now offering our first Key Stage 3 and GCSE students a fabulous education.
In May 2018 our school was judged by OFSTED to be outstanding.
Our sixth form will open in September 2021.
Our students make rapid progress in an environment of love and care without bells.
Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, and children are treasured.
We believe that anyone can learn anything, and the growth mindset underpins everything we do.
We explicitly teach our children to live by positive shared values and to hold these deep in their hearts. We are a Rights Respecting school and teach our children how to ensure that everyone has the right to learn and be safe. This creates our wonderful learning environments and great behaviour.
Our pedagogical approach is rooted in the science of memory and how children learn. We ask lots of questions, we explain in small steps, we link to prior learning and we guide first practice. Our students think hard about their learning and we ensure they focus on their precise next steps.
We maintain a great work-life balance. Our behaviour procedures are centralised. Our marking policy allows for constructive student feedback in an efficient manner. Our home learning systems are well organised.
We are now looking for a Head of Business Studies and Economics to join our fantastic team. This person will be ambitious for career development. Business Studies is a very popular subject at GCSE. We will offer A Level Business studies and A level Economics in our new sixth form.
