Try this one first. I'm not sure I actually have an e-mail address for the school. It looks like they have been working hard on the website this summer, adding new things all the time.

I'm going over in the morning as the PTA Shop is open and daughter needs somethings left on her book list. I'm sure the office has been closed, but will reopen on Monday.

I'll see if I can find out another e-mail address or verify that this is correct.

Thanks Sunnie.

I'm hoping to email the school soonest to see if they can answer some of my questions. Not long now until my daughter would need to sit the 11+ (if we decided on St Ursula & they had a space for her).

So glad i came across this website, you've been very helpful

sorry bout that Lindi, but I forgot to ask while there this AM.. long line at the PTA shop and totally forgot everything except the books etc., I was trying to get for one of my daughters.

I'll call the school first thing Monday, but I would suggest that you try the e-mail listed first and then resend on Monday if it doesn't go anywhere.

Let me just say this.. when I went to their office the full year before my daughter was to sit the 11plus, they told me.. don't worry, we have places.. and they likely will.. they have 2 intake classes every year.. Form 1 and lower form 1 (which is for girls who haven't done well on the 11plus, or have some type of slight learning disability, such as ADD, Dyslexia, etc.) I'm not 100percent sure about the actual number, but they take probably about 40 new girls ever year.. which doesn't sound like much, but for a private girls secondary it is..

St. Winifreds will have their first class of boys next week.. I understand that out of an intake of about 32 students, 18 are boys.. which is very interesting, and obviously needed.

Thanks very much for getting me the info Sunnie, I will email them today.

I notice that the senior school only goes to year 5, what happens then? Is there a 6th form college on the island?

Regards

Harrison College, Queen's College and The Barbados Community College all have 6th form years. I think also Comberrmere has a 6th form as well, but not sure. I thought The Lodge School did as well, but not sure.

When the results from the CXC (Caribbean Examination Council) exams come out, the child has to apply to one of the 6th form schools, even if they are already a student there, or they apply to the community college to do their
6th form years.

Thanks for that, I know it's a long way away but it's good to know if she does decide to sit her 'A' levels (or equivalent), she can.

The Convent Schools take girls and boys 3-11 and girls 11-16. Quite a well-regarded school with an active parent community.

Glad to see the website is being worked on. It should also have a PTA section with announcements etc, as their isn't much that comes home to to the parents.

I also have many friends who attended St. Gabriel's Primary School, and Codrington High School and had pleasant experiences.
I would completely recommend St. Winifred's to anyone.
Hope this helps. If you have any further questions dont hesitate to reply back
Hi, here am I with my questions & hesitations.
Being 6 y.o. my daughter is smart but her English is poor. Is there smth like ESL support at St. Winifred's?
Being a bit undisciplined & unorganized my daughter is smart enough to feel the slightest weakness of mom & pop & others, so the "reasonable strictness" at St. Winifred's is exactly what she needs. But what level of strictness you consider to be reasonable? Could you please give me some examples to have a better understanding?
Thanks!
