Welcome Back

We are pleased to welcome back students for the start of the new academic year. We would like to extend a special welcome to all those students who have just started at Woodlands Academy.

We are all really excited about the new academic year at Woodlands academy and the interesting learning opportunities on offer here. Woodlands Academy is a great place to learn and thrive whatever your ability.

Woodlands Wins Bronze!

Woodlands recently took part in the Global Voices Network Sports Tournament. We won bronze medals in both the Football and Boccia competing against teams from Special Schools across Nottinghamshire.

The Boccia team were unfortunate to be drawn against the champions from Fountaindale School. But after losing initially they went onto win a tie breaker against Oak Field school who hosted the tournament.

The football team did extremely well also and were unlucky not to get  silver medal after an amazing performance.

Congratulations to all those students from Woodlands who took part!

Preparation for Exams 2017

Year 11 pupils are working hard to complete their coursework and preparing for their forthcoming exams.

All of our year 11 students are working towards accredited courses for a range of subjects.

Though they will be revising in school – if you are a parent or the carer of a year 11 student, please contact the school if you would like extra revision activities to complete at home.  To ensure they achieve their potential in all their accredited courses.

School Temporarily Closed

The school is temporarily closed due to a broken boiler. Engineers are on site working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.

But until the boiler is working and there is heating in all the classrooms the school will be shut temporarily.

We will keep parents informed via phone and messages so you are aware of the situation and will be told as soon as the problem is fixed.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused

Battlefields Trip 2017

The trip to Belgium and France to visit and commemorate the First World War was a great success. All those pupils who were lucky enough to be involved enjoyed the trip and were sorry to have to return to the UK.

We visited the memorial museum at Passchendaele, Tyne Cot cemetery and the Thiepval memorial. As well as many other sites which were affected by the battles of the Somme and Ypres.

The trip was a great success, the trip affected us all and it really brought home the horrors of the First World war. Both staff and pupils were moved by the ceremony of the last post at the Menin Gate.

We are now working on our legacy project to share with the local community all that we have learned about what life was like in the trenches of the First World War.

Welcome Back

The Start of a new Academic Year

It’s  Autumn Term 2015 and the start of the new academic year at Woodlands. We would like to say hello to all our pupils, parents and stakeholders. We trust you have had a nice break and are now back and raring to go with the new term.

The Autumn term can seem quite long and is marked by the changing seasons. The weather gets gradually colder, wetter and the days become shorter. But this is not a barrier to enjoying the changing of the seasons and enjoying everyday in school regardless of how damp and miserable it is outside.

In school we try very hard to ensure every term offers exciting learning opportunities and challenges to our students. This term is no different and we will ensure all pupils are excited to be back at school and learning. We have lots of fun activities planned to ensure that all pupils enjoy not only the lessons but also the extra curricular activities we have on offer.


Welcome to the Woodlands Website!

Welcome to our website. We hope that the information on the site will be useful to you.

The new academic year is underway and I am pleased to report that the popularity and increasing success of both schools within the Federation is supported by the fact that both schools are full and numbers of pupils on roll has risen.

We continue to offer a successful broad and balanced curriculum across our schools and important access to a wide range of examination opportunities at the end of key stage 4. We are delighted to report that all of our July 15 leavers successfully moved on to post16 education employment or training.

As with all other similar schools, this year will see considerable investment in time in order to deliver the Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP) for our pupils. We will be working with a range of other professional partners to secure the best possible outcomes for our pupils in this new task and I will report later this year on our work in this area.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and feel free to use our contact details if you require any additional information.

Executive Headteacher, John Dyson
