“The school is worth going to. Great school for studying and development. Big push on after school classes which is great. My child loves this school.”

“Warm and friendly learning environment. Creative teaching styles.”

“The children have so many wonderful opportunities to develop learning in so many ways. Both the children and myself have thoroughly enjoyed the Gospel Choir and the KS2 production.”

“Whitefriars is so welcoming and embraces all aspects of education - our girls have been so happy here and I know they've had the best foundations set for their education.”
