Welcome to
St. Winifred's School

For almost 100 years the tradition that is St. Winifred's School has been inspiring students to academic and personal excellence, giving them strong educational roots that stand the test of time.

With just under 600 pupils from aged three to seventeen, and a teaching staff of nearly fifty we are one of the few private schools in Barbados offering both primary and secondary education.

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.
