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

The Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate
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.
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 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.
