Welcome To Our Website


Woods has an excellent reputation for high academic standards, high quality teaching, hard working and friendly pupils, child centred pastoral care and excellent extra curricular provision.

We believe that parents, staff, pupils, governors and members of the local community need to work together and co-operate with each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect and support, for the benefit of all. 

This website is one of the ways we communicate with members of our school community about what is going on in our busy school. 

We trust you will find our website helpful as it will give you an overall impression of what makes our school so special.  If you are interested in finding out more about our school please come and visit us in person, you are assured of a warm welcome!
