St. Winefride’s School Admissions Policy

Children of other religious denominations are very welcome at St. Winefride’s and share in the religious ethos of the school which is summed up in the school motto ‘Soli Deo’.

There are no entrance exams; children and parents are invited to visit the school, to meet the staff  and other children and to see the School in operation.

Arising from the Christian values of the school is an awareness of the plight of children and the poor in places around the world, for whom the school raises money. The school has a special interest in Prada Children’s Homes in the Philippines which caters for deprived and traumatised children.
