Care and Achievement


As a school we believe children succeed when they feel valued, cared for and supported. We believe that every child should be known and cared for as an individual. Our school and class sizes are, therefore, relatively small which ensures the tutor, teacher, Head of School and, of course, the Headteacher, can come to know your child over the next seven years of study at the school.

We aim to foster the development of the whole person, in a disciplined and ordered working environment which is secure and caring, and within which each pupil can aim for excellence.

To create a positive, happy atmosphere, in which pupils are able to take pride in their achievements, and in which pupils and staff work together with mutual respect, courtesy and consideration for others.

Our highly experienced Head of Lower School will work to support your son or daughter as they make the transition to our school. The team are also supported by a Care and Achievement Co-ordinator, two for Lower and another colleague for Upper School. They are available on a direct line, from 8:30am until 4:30pm every school day, should you have any pastoral or academic queries once your child has started at our school. We believe effective communication is essential if the home school partnership is to be successful, therefore you can be reassured that with a direct telephone number, e-mail address or through the use of texting, you can always make contact when needed and be guaranteed a response.

Our combined focus on Care and Achievement ensures that in caring for and supporting your son or daughter, we provide the very best environment for them to thrive in academically.


At Woldgate School, we aim to create a positive and motivated atmosphere, within which pupils can take pride in what they do. Our Heads of Department and the Heads of School, along with their teams, have oversight of your son or daughters academic achievement. With each tutor being committed to ensuring every child fulfils their potential and achieves their target. They will ensure that you are regularly updated on your child’s progress so you can be confident they are making the necessary success.

To provide an insight into our curriculum we have provided an overview of the areas of study for this current academic year. Please note that these may change, as colleagues adapt programmes of study or make amendments due to national curriculum changes. You should refer to the School website prior to your son or daughter starting at the School for the latest information.
