Welcome to The Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School

One of the most important decisions that you will make as a parent, concerns where your children should attend secondary school. The Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School is one in which all activities are underpinned by the school motto: “All things for Christ”. We are a ‘community in communion’. All of our students belong to the local parishes.

We offer families an education of the highest quality through academic and spiritual growth.

Our students are loved and challenged.  Our commitment to their spiritual, academic and personal growth is unwavering.

About us

The Cardinal Wiseman School welcomes applications from all students, Catholic and non-Catholic to its sixth form.

All we require from students is that they show a commitment and dedication to their studies and that they will support the school ethos.

Learner success

The Cardinal Wiseman Sixth Form is a vibrant and distinct learning community. We are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning within a strong academic environment. We believe in maximising our students’ potential through effective guidance and support and by providing a range of opportunities to equip our young people with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st century.


We are very proud of our provision and Ofsted in our most recent inspection (October 2014) recognised this: ‘Sixth Form study programmes are well matched to every learner. Such carefully planned curriculum and qualifications menus result in rapidly improving achievement and very high retention levels’ across a range of subjects. Ofsted also commented that, ‘sixth form students enjoy excellent careers information and guidance. Such advice is consistently tailored well to individual needs. As a result, many sixth form students are the first in their family to successfully apply to university and such success is repeated year on year.’


Many of our students now attend Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. We offer a strong combination of learning and social facilities to ensure students are well catered for.


We have three distinct learning pathways: accelerated, academic and vocational. These pathways ensure that students of all abilities are studying appropriate courses where they will succeed in. We have brand new sixth form facilities which have enhanced the learning experiences of our students considerably.


We offer ‘a broad, holistic education for students of a very high quality’ and our special community has been recognised by Ofsted: ‘Sixth Form students’ attitudes exemplify fundamental British values of tolerance, decency and mutual respect. In all of their community relationships, these young adults model warmth and compassion.’

(Ofsted report, October 2014)
