What the school says...

Akeley Wood is a happy and caring school with an unpretentious approach. There is a strong emphasis on good manners, a friendly discipline, and looking after others. Naturally we strive for high academic standards, and the results achieved in public examinations are impressive. However, we are also concerned with education in its broader sense, and Art, Music, Drama and Sport are all important to us. In short, we play to the strengths of each individual pupil, to maximise their full potential. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Special Education Needs

The Special Educational Needs provision is centred on a sound and caring environment in which every child is encouraged to achieve their very best. Early assessment ensures that the need for support can be quickly established. This takes the form of extra dyslexia tuition for younger children and Study Support through GCSE and A level years by highly qualified, dedicated specialist teachers. Study Support plays a central role in the standard of academic achievement in the school and can provide a secure base, where pupils can receive guidance and support to enable them to function to the best of their ability in the classroom and in public examinations. For children with more severe dyslexic-type difficulties and those requiring a greater level of support, we provide a specialist Tutorial Programme. These classes run parallel to, and are an integral part of, each year group, catering for a maximum of 10 pupils. Whilst still following the general curriculum, the Tutorial Programme is able to offer specialist teaching in a structured, caring environment. A more multi-sensory approach to learning is provided, in order to meet individual needs, and to maximise pupils’ potential.
