Welcome to our School
We are an independent Catholic school which welcomes children of all denominations. We have a long history of
inspiring children to learn. We encourage them to become rounded individuals and are particularly proud of our Music, Drama and Sport successes as well as our academic excellence.
Our children aim high in all that they do at Virgo Fidelis. We are fortunate to be able to teach and learn in such beautiful, safe surroundings
and are constantly building on our academic and personal successes.
Guide to the Four Rules of Number
We have made a conscious decision to teach the standard methods of calculation to our pupils. We feel that having too many different strategies can be confusing, especially for those pupils who find numeracy challenging.
Pupils need to be secure in their understanding of these basic concepts and it is important that parents understand them too, so you can offer help when necessary.
A number of parents have said that they would welcome a booklet that explained these strategies. Well, here it is! You can download it by clicking HERE.
We hope that you will find it useful. It is the first of several offerings that will be made available to parents.

As parents know, we took over management of our catering at the start of term and launched CAFÉ VIRGO! We did this without a full-time chef, but the team in the CAFÉ VIRGO kitchen have pulled out all the stops and have provided "normal service" including a full range of hot meals. They are to be congratulated on the work they've done.
We are now delighted to announce that we have appointed Mrs Chris Koo as School Chef and Kitchen Manager with effect from November 1st. We have also been able to promote Mrs Mandy Clarke as Assistant Chef/Kitchen Manager with immediate effect. CAFÉ VIRGO is now operating fully and we look forward to the continued success of the CAFÉ VIRGO team.
