St Wilfrid’s is a private school and has been in existence for over 140 years and is well known and respected in Exeter for providing non-selective, independent education for pupils aged 3-16 on a co-educational basis.
The atmosphere in which our pupils work ensures stability and happiness so that all may progress and attain their full potential. Relationships are good, behaviour is excellent and discipline problems virtually unknown. Pupils gain confidence and many “school refusals” have blossomed.
Our School is a community in which everyone works happily and purposefully together and where we value the contribution each pupil makes.
What distinguishes us from many other schools is our ability to develop our pupils’ global needs – not just their academic achievements. Our “whole-school” approach ensures that our pupils receive a consistent and co-ordinated education aimed at unlocking the full potential of each child by creating a school day that is motivating and purposeful. We underpin learning with rich experiences and as many “hands-on” opportunities as possible, both within the school day and, in the wider community, through off- site visits.
