Academic Success

Our children make exceptional academic progress during their time in our school. We continue to strive and sustain these high levels of attainment, whilst remaining true to our ethos of offering a nurturing and supportive environment, enabling every child to be the best they can be.

We have built strong relationships with a whole variety of senior schools and children are exceptionally well prepared to continue on their educational journey. St Wystan’s pupils have an excellent track record of achieving their first choice of senior school and we are extremely proud of our record of success in independent and state senior entrance.

2020 Senior School Destination

  • Derby High
  • Denstone College
