Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Wystan’s School, I hope our website gives you a flavour of how incredibly warm and vibrant our family school is. All our pupils have the opportunity to shine in small classes, enjoy and gain the most from their formative years with laughter and encouragement.

Children need to feel safe and happy, free from hot-housing or fear of making mistakes. They should feel confident in the knowledge that they can always do better next time and bounce back ready to take on new challenges. Our enthusiastic and experienced staff instil confidence in our pupils, with an education that extends far beyond the classroom. Our pupils develop excellent life skills and values, whilst engaging with their learning. We provide the support, encouragement and freedom they need to develop socially and explore new opportunities.

St Wystan’s is committed to providing an outstanding holistic education in a supportive and stimulating environment where our creative curriculum is brought to life. Each individual is respected and allowed to celebrate their unique character and capabilities, allowing them to be themselves and enable them to achieve to the best of their ability. We believe a child’s formative years to be the most influential to their development and work ethic.  St Wystan’s is not affiliated to any one senior school and a large part our success is down to our knowledge and relationship with a wide choice of destination schools and also our understanding of our children’s requirements. We are proud of the diverse destinations to which our pupils secure offers and scholarships. Children are unique and should go to the school where they will feel valued and appreciated for who they are at that stage of their educational journey.

I would be delighted to welcome you and your child to see first-hand how proud our children and staff are to be part of St Wystan’s.

I look forward to meeting you.
