Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Wood Green School. In 1968 Wood Green School became the first truly comprehensive school in Witney and, fifty years on, the ethos of those early days, when all students were welcomed into a warm, caring community are still very much alive. Our motto, ‘Excellence for all’, captures what Wood Green aims to achieve every day. Since those early days, Wood Green has developed into a thriving, successful school. This year, 74% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths. The achievement of our most able students was highly impressive: 24 students achieved seven or more GCSEs at the highest grades 7 to 9. You will achieve exam success at Wood Green, but you will achieve even more than that. Our curriculum and enrichment opportunities are carefully designed to ensure that students develop all the knowledge, skills and personal qualities to be happy and successful. We want the very best for our students, and we know it is working: every student who finished our Sixth Form this year and applied to university successfully achieved a place, including 30% at Russell Group universities, well-above the national average. Other students are now on fantastic apprenticeships with some of the top employers nationally.

We believe that Wood Green is a great place to come to school, and in 2018 we are oversubscribed in year 7 and our Sixth Form has grown by nearly a fifth! I hope this website gives you a flavour of the ethos of our school and the opportunities available. You are warmly invited to visit us too. People who visit Wood Green are always struck by the sense of community and purpose. Please do contact us if you would like to visit.
