School is a very big part of a child’s life. Children thrive when they feel safe and valued and they learn and succeed when they can see the progress they are making.
A huge part of the work that we have always done at Woodhill School involves creating the right environment for children. When asked our pupils what they think of their school, our pupils often liken it to a big family. Aspects of development that are seldom mentioned in the curriculum such as confidence, courtesy, friendship, sportsmanship and kindness are as important to us as academic achievement.
Pupils achieve their academic best when teaching closely matches their needs and abilities. Small classes enable us to target learning to each individual child. In this way children take a new step in their learning every day – over time each step adds up to make a marathon.
We are proud of our pupils’ achievements in examinations. Every year they surprise and delight us with many entrance examination passes along with a generous sprinkling of scholarships.
We are equally proud of how our pupils develop as rounded individuals. They play together with mutual respect and kindness, they sing and dance with confidence, they explore their world with eager anticipation and they support each other’s achievements.
