We have very strong links with our church, St Wilfrid's Church, which is a five minute walk from the school. On a regular basis, clergy lead collective worship in school.
Representatives of the church have a strong guiding influence on our school’s mission and future direction, and we liaise closely with representatives of the Manchester Diocese.
As a Voluntary Aided School the majority of our governors are appointed by the church authorities.
St Wilfrid's Mission
St.Wilfrid’s is the Church of England ( i.e. “Anglican,” or “Episcopalian”) Parish Church for Northenden, a district in the Wythenshawe area of south Manchester, UK.
Our aim is to honour God as we worship him, using both traditional and modern C of E forms of service; to share the good news of what Jesus Christ taught about life, God, and our relationship with him, and what he achieved for us through his death and resurrection; to offer support, spiritual or practical, to people in times of need or crisis, and in the normal routine and adventure of living; to encourage people to serve God in and through their daily lives, whether in their church activities, or in their “normal” life in work, family and community; to help people grasp more clearly the Christian understanding of life, the world and everything, through discussion and teaching
