Other features

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

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.
