The school is of Anglican foundation but accepts pupils of all denominations. It is divided into three Houses that represent its founding teachers - Seale, Ince and Burton.
The School's property is vested in three Trustees and is managed by a Committee of Management comprised of local businessmen, past-pupils, members of the St. Winifred's School's Association (SWSA) and the Headmistress.
The SWSA is made up of past-pupils, parents, teachers and friends. Its main objectives are to assist the Committee of Management of the school in promoting the interest of past-pupils, friends and parents, and to raise funds for the purpose of contributing to the maintenance, upkeep and improvement of the school. It performs the function of a PTA for the school.
St. Winifred's School is one of the few private schools in Barbados offering both primary and secondary education.
The school day consists of seven (and for some eight) lessons under the guidance of a qualified and motivated teaching staff. The school tries to maintain a balanced curriculum and there is no streaming of students. St. Winifred's accepts girls aged four to seventeen, and boys from four to eleven years old. However, since September 2008 the school has accepted boys to its Senior department. The school now offers two streams of students in all three departments (preps, Juniors & Seniors) and has facilities for approximately six hundred pupils.
