Our outstanding facilities, excellent academic results, wide range of co-curricular activities and a beautiful setting ensure that we can provide your child with the best opportunities and the preparation for a life beyond the classroom.

The school's Christian foundation and forward thinking combine with excellent facilities that include an impressive 25m competition swimming pool, state-of-the-art sports and performing arts centre and a purpose-built music and drama facility.

We are a school with traditional values but ambitions for the future, an unpretentious school that seeks to nurture all.

Special Education Needs

As a school equally academically ambitious and sensitive, Woodhouse Grove has had a Learning Support Unit for more than 30 years and approximately 10% of our intake receives support. We are committed to providing a balanced education for everyone. We have a ‘whole school’ approach to pupils with Special Educational Needs and /or disabilities (SEND). In close consultation with pupils, parents and outside agencies, we endeavour to remove barriers to learning. In this way we optimise educational outcomes and seek to fulfil pupil potential. It is our experience that timetable flexibility and personal confidence, built up through contact with a member of the Learning Support department, are effective in this.
