Welcome to St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School, Gateshead


Our Staff





It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.

St Wilfrid’s is a diverse, thriving Catholic community, where everyone is valued and is given the best opportunity to reach their full potential. Whilst we strive for academic excellence, we balance this with development of children’s social, moral and spiritual formation. All at St Wilfrid’s are committed to celebrating each unique child in our school.

It is important to us that parents and families have a voice and feel that school is approachable and welcoming and that any concerns you may have can be shared, so please never hesitate to get in touch.

Our Values

At St. Wilfrid’s we endeavour to follow the example of Jesus Christ by loving, respecting, understanding and forgiving each other. It is our belief that the best education is achieved by delivering an ambitious curriculum which nurtures the intellectual, spiritual and social development of each child.

Every member of our school community is unique and makes an important contribution to school life. For our children, we strive to develop self-esteem and a positive self-image which leads to pride in their achievements and an ability to reach their full potential, physically, academically, mentally and spiritually.


We send out letters and newsletters on a regular basis to keep parents up to date with school decisions and progress.

At St Wilfrid's, we keep our parents, carers and families informed about upcoming events and celebrations of our children's successes. We regularly publish a newsletter, which is sent out electronically to all of our parents and is made available on this page. We also use Social media to share the very latest events, learning and religious celebrations that take place within our school.
