Curriculum

D&TPupils at Woodlands School follow the national curriculum, with enhanced opportunities to access a more  active learning involved in subjects such as Design and Technology, Food Technology and Physical Education.  They also have daily contact during period 1 with their tutor and dedicated Special Support Assistant.

Pupils take a range of examinations in key stage four, primarily in year 10, and can take advantage of an increasingly varied range of vocational opportunities within our alternative curriculum for year 11 pupils, meaning that their time can be split between school, college and regular weekly work experience, leading to as broad a base as possible in terms of qualifications and experiences.

Feedback from our latest Ofsted report:

  • “Relationships are strong and students appreciate the support they receive. They say that they feel safe.”
  • “All students leave school with a qualification and all go on to employment, training or further education.”
  • “Staff work hard and are committed to ensuring that students have the best experiences.”
  • “Assessments are now more accurate when students start school. This has enabled leaders to identify and meet students’ additional learning needs better. These students often make good or better progress.”
  • “More students are now making good progress in mathematics.”
