Our Vision: To have students who are: engaged  -  challenged  -   motivated  -   valued   -   happy

 The tradition that is St. Winifred’s School dates back ninety-five years to its inception.

Today our school boasts a sprawling complex that strives to maintain the foundation of family and community.  Our school is one of the few private schools in Barbados offering both primary and secondary education. With just over 600 pupils from aged three to seventeen, St. Winifred’s School seeks to support, nurture, inspire, motivate and challenge our young people to achieve their very best.

The school welcomes students from the entire spectrum of the Barbadian society, regionally as well as internationally.

Our aim is to provide our students with a firm foundation in education, promoting individual and social development in an atmosphere of warmth, joy and intellectual excitement. We seek to lay the groundwork for our children to become knowledgeable, responsible citizens. We foster in our students a deep respect for themselves and others, an appreciation of diversity, a strong commitment to values, and a lifelong love of learning.

The School will have an online Student Information System from September 2017.  This will allow students to check assignments etc. online and will give parents access to their child/children's school profile and assignments pages.
