“Belonging, Believing, Becoming"

Our Mission






  • New school library opens at St Wilfrid's

    Library stocked with thousands of books thanks to incredible support from local community



Welcome to St Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary School, where our caring and friendly atmosphere gives children a great start to their educational journey.

We are at the heart of a close-knit community in Northenden, which includes our amazingly talented and hard working pupils, dedicated, experienced staff and an active Parent Teacher Association. As part of the St James & Emmanuel Academy Trust, our Christian school exists to provide a welcoming environment in which everybody is cherished and challenged to fulfill their potential.

At St Wilfrid’s, our aim is always to provide a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that encourages a positive attitude to the learning process. We expect high standards in teaching, learning and behaviour, which rubs off on children who are nurtured to become confident, resilient and, most of all, happy and secure at school.

Our high-quality teaching of the core curriculum is supplemented by sports activities, music lessons, choirs and clubs - we’re committed to encouraging children to discover their passions. And they feed off this sense of participation, be that in School Council, weekly class assemblies or annual productions.

So please do take the time to look around the website and get a glimpse of what life is like here at St Wilfrid’s CE Primary School. And we’d love to have the opportunity to show you personally how our wonderful school is changing and developing into a school that caters for all the challenges of 21st century education. Please do get in touch and arrange a time to see for yourself why St Wilfrid’s is the right choice for your child.

We hope to see you very soon.
