Welcome to St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to our school. St Wilfrid's is a two form entry Catholic Primary School serving the Catholic communities of St Wilfrid’s in Burgess Hill and St Edward’s in Keymer. 

Headteacher's Welcome 

St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School is a community of faith and learning, where all aspire to be their best. We are a friendly and happy school with high standards and expectations. We are proud of our amazing children and aim to know them really well developing relationships based on mutual trust and respect.


As a Catholic school, our ethos is based on the Gospel values of Respect for Life, Love, Solidarity, Truth and Justice. Our inclusive ethos is evident and we welcome children and families of all faiths and backgrounds.

Our community is further strengthened by our home, school and parish links and we work in partnership with schools in both West Sussex and our diocese.


At St. Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School we recognise that each child is unique and value their individuality and diversity. We are committed to developing their God given talents. Our children receive a Catholic education which enables them to fulfil their spiritual, academic, intellectual, physical, emotional and social potential. Christ is at the heart of all that we do and every decision we make is based on what is in the best interest of our children.

We are ambitious for our children and want to ensure that they are well prepared for their future through an excellent primary education which sets strong foundations for the next stages of their learning and their future. Resilience, creativity, tolerance, independence and collaboration are some of the many qualities our pupils develop during their time at St Wilfrid’s.  Our dedicated staff team work in partnership with parents and carers throughout the children’s education at St Wilfrid’s.  We want our children to be the best that they can be in all that they do. We do this by providing a stimulating learning environment and a broad and balanced curriculum. To find out more about our curriculum please click here


We are inspired by Christ's commandment to love God and our neighbour. We are outward looking and encourage pupils to recognise and celebrate the diversity of our community and the wider world. During their time at St Wilfrid’s, children develop a global awareness and understand their responsibility to look after the world and those who live in it.


We always warmly welcome visitors to our school. If you think that St Wilfrid’s might be the school of choice for your child, then please contact our friendly school office team to find out more about visiting us to see our curriculum in action and meet some of our staff and children.

God Bless,
