St Werburgh’s School is a genuinely fun place to work and learn. We work hard but always ensure that we enjoy learning.

We want every child to be the best person that they can possibly be and to know that they have a valuable place in God’s world. The whole school/church community are committed to working towards this end, so each child can blossom both academically, socially and spiritually. Our school tag line: Achieve, Believe, Together, helps us to remember how we can do this:

  • By being good role models- like Jesus
  • Taking pride in ourselves and our work
  • Having high expectations
  • Being prepared to have a go
  • Being a team player.

In this way we ensure that all our pupils are happy, confident and fully prepared to enjoy life, whilst at the same time providing them with the skills needed to make their own unique contribution to God’s world.

An update from Mrs Alton:
I am off to India on Friday 19th January for 10 days with Mrs Dent to continue our work with the Derby Diocese offering much needed help to the poorest of children in Kolkata.

This year both me and Mrs Dent will be spending time training teachers who work in the CRS (Christian Relief Schools) and visiting our partner school, Sukantanagar. I will be leading a counting project and Mrs Dent will be introducing phonics. We are both very excited and will be keeping you all up to date with our exciting experiences whilst we are away. Watch out for our news updates.
