Feeder primary schoolsEdit

The Prince of Wales visitEdit

Charles, Prince of Wales visited the school in April 2008. He was interested in the school's farm and how the pupils looked after the animals. The school won the DCSF Sustainable Schools Award[2] in 2009. As of July 2017, the farm is now being shut down due to fewer pupils not choosing to participate in the animal care subjects as well as the new management's focus on academic subjects.[3]

Malawi LinksEdit

Cardinal Wiseman School has been sending students to Malawi for over a decade and has established links with a number of schools, most notably Bunda School. Bunda is on track to becoming a sustainable school [4] and with, the help of Cardinal Wiseman staff, students and contributors to the Cardinal Wiseman Malawi Trust [5] hopes to become an advice hub for other schools in Malawi. The Trust has given much help and support to Bunda over the years and also to Kasina Health Clinic.[6]
