An Academy for Students Aged 11-18

Excellence Through Endeavour

About Us

Welcome to Woodrush High School, an extremely popular and over-subscribed Academy for 11 to 18-year olds. 

Woodrush is a thriving secondary school committed to building supportive, professional relationships between students, staff, parents, carers and the community we serve, to ensure all our young people receive the excellent education they deserve.

With an established reputation both locally and regionally, Woodrush has a strong history of success and partnerships. Our school community is composed of the main school site and the modern Community Hub building: containing the community and school Library, Rush Gym, Café, Youth & Community Centre and our Training Consortium. Each of these elements of Woodrush reflects our commitment to being at the heart of our community, serving children and residents and growing specialist in learning, teaching and youth support. 

We strive for ‘Excellence through Endeavour’ in all that we do. This motto captures our unwavering drive towards academic success for all, whilst developing our young people to be well-rounded individuals who will make a positive contribution to society. In our most recent inspection we were judged by Ofsted as a ‘Good’ school with ‘Outstanding’ leadership & management and ‘Outstanding’ student personal development, behaviour and welfare. As a thriving community school, we value the contribution all our students make to the life and success of everything we do. Our pastoral care is a clear strength and ensures that students and staff feel safe, valued and are happy to be a part of our school. Indeed, visitors comment on the ‘warmth’ and sense of ‘family’ which is tangible around the school. 

We deliver a challenging, relevant and adaptable curriculum which inspires, stretches and celebrates students learning and enables them to access a wide range of disciplines. Our teaching and learning support staff are committed and well-qualified professionals, dedicated to maximising success for all students.

Woodrush staff share a common goal: to make our school the very best it can be and make each learner’s experience, a successful one. Woodrush staff have extremely high expectations of both themselves and our students. However, of all our achievements, we are most proud of our young people: their behaviour is excellent. They are courteous, friendly natured, curious learners and respectful individual towards each other and staff. And they enjoy and participate positively in their classroom-based experiences and the extensive extra-curricular opportunities afforded to them.

We are justifiably proud to be a part of Woodrush. Whatever your interest in our Academy, I hope you find the information on this website useful. If you have any further questions, or would like to visit our school, please get in touch, we would be delighted to welcome you.
