Our Vision for your Child

Ofsted 2018 "The ethos of the school is successfully built on it's Christian values ... Provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong.  Pupils are proud to belong to the school".


We want St Werburgh's to take your child on a fulfilling journey in which they grow, not only academically, but grow also in their personality and character.  We want them to not only excel in literacy and numeracy, but also possess good personal qualities, values, attitudes and skills that are essential for a fulfilling life and successful learning for the future.

Please take time to explore this vision.  We have expressed it in the words a Year 6 child might say as they leave St Werburgh's at the end of their time with us.
