Newman Catholic Collegiate

“By faith only do we know our position in the world, our circumstances, our rights and privileges, our fortunes, our parents, our brothers and sisters, our age, our mortality”  John Henry Newman

We have an exceptionally strong tradition of working with our seven partner primary schools and St. Margaret Ward Catholic Academy. Working together for the sake of all our students, we share the same high standards of education based on the founding principles of compassion and respect.

In 2012, our family of schools formalised its successful relationships by joining together to form the Newman Catholic Collegiate.

Together with St Wilfrid’s Catholic Academy, the Newman Catholic Collegiate includes:

  • St John the Evangelist Catholic Academy, Kidsgrove
  • Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy (formerly English Martyrs’), Biddulph
  • St Mary’s Catholic Academy, Norton
  • St Peter’s Catholic Academy, Cobridge
  • St George & St Martin Cathloic Academy, Birches Head
  • St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, Goldenhill
  • Our Lady & St Benedict Catholic Academy, Abbey Hulton
  • St Margaret Ward Catholic Academy, Tunstall

St Wilfrid’s takes every opportunity to work with the pupils within our partner schools as we recognise the importance of providing a continuum of Catholic education from a child’s early years, all the way through to post-16 education.

Activities across our family of schools include pupils in years 4, 5 and 6 attending masses celebrated at St Margaret Ward. We organise a range of sporting activities both within the primaries and St Margaret Ward site. Children in years 5 and 6 regularly attend lessons at St Margaret Ward in preparation for year 7 and are frequent visitors as audiences for school shows. This extensive range of activities, together with our carefully designed transition programme, ensures smooth progress from primary to secondary school and offers children and parents security and consistency.
