School Description

St Wilfrid’s School is a co-educational, non-selective day school registered for 125 pupils aged between five and 16 years of age. Currently, there are 45 pupils on roll, aged from three to 16 years. There are two pupils with an education, health and care plan. The school uses off-site provision for physical education. The school was last inspected in 14 May 2014, when it met all the regulations. A higher proportion of pupils than seen nationally join the school at times other than at the start of the Nursery. Most of the year group cohorts have less than five pupils. Consequently, comparisons against the national average for the end of key stages cannot be made. Inspection report: St Wilfrid's School, 17–19 October 2017 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed pupils’ learning in all classes across the school, mostly jointly with senior leaders. Discussions took place with the proprietor, the headteacher and senior and middle leaders. In addition, the inspector met with the school’s special educational needs coordinator (SENCo), the lower school leader and the early years leader. Inspectors scrutinised a number of documents, including school improvement plans, leaders’ monitoring of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, as well as records relating to behaviour, attendance and safeguarding. The inspectors, together with the senior leaders, looked at pupils’ work in their books to establish the current quality of pupils’ work and progress over time. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour and spoke with two groups of pupils to seek their views about the school. The views of other pupils were gathered during lessons, playtimes and lunchtimes. An inspector conducted a walk around the school to look at curriculum displays, the promotion of British values and to find out how pupils feel about their learning. Inspectors spoke to groups of parents and considered 18 responses to the online survey, Parent View. Inspectors also considered 13 completed staff surveys.

St Wilfrid's School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Would not recommend”
"> We weren’t very impressed with St Wilfrids, Exeter. The school claims to be ‘nurturing & supportive with caring teachers who get to know your child so that they develop into excited and eager learners’ but sadly the reality is that there are only a few caring teachers at this school in my opinion and children can be misunderstood and put in isolation for up to a week at a time. It’s an odd little school, not great for regular kids but not great for kids with learning disabilities either. Would not recommend.
“Fantastic School”
"> This is and excellent school that provides fantastic all round education in a kind and empathetic manner. My child has come on so quickly in a non pressured culture. He is already reading ahead of his age range and enjoys going to school.
“Excellent little school!”
"> Really worth checking out if you have a child that needs a small and nurturing environment but with a strong academic syllabus.
“Hidden gem!”
"> A truly amazing little school where children are really nurtured and allowed to flourish both academically and emotionally. I've never experienced another school like it. Definitely one of a kind.
