WOLSINGHAM School is a thriving and happy community where pupils achieve very highly, are exceptionally well cared for and develop into thoughtful, well-rounded adults.

Education at Wolsingham School stretches all students, regardless of their starting points. In 2018, 70 per cent of students passed both English and Maths at GCSE and 25 per cent of entries across all subjects were graded 7-9 or A*-A.

The school's students enjoy academic events like science, technology and maths competitions, MFL workshops at the Tyneside Cinema, Oxplore events with Oxford University and mock trial competitions.

The school’s individually-tailored careers advice ensures that students go to post-16 destinations suited to their aspirations.

Wolsingham School is an extremely caring community where pupils feel safe and valued, even before they join us. Year 5 and 6 students spend three full days of induction in July. The school's transition co-ordinator visits primary schools throughout Year 6 and events like the Keeping in Touch mornings with parents and the How to Support Your Child in Year 7 evening ensure Wolsingham School students and parents are part of the community.

Through the school's house system and vertical tutor groups every child is known and cared for individually. In 2018, Ofsted confirmed Wolsingham School's Good rating in very complimentary tones, saying: “Pupils are very happy at school and they wear their uniform with pride.”

Students enjoy school where the extra-curricular programme offers something for everyone, including football, rugby, netball, debating, musical theatre and the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, as well as opportunities to serve the community through our police, fire and army cadets.

Students travel to Barcelona, Paris, the Battlefields of WWI, London theatres and the English Channel for a sailing trip.

Wolsingham School has a long tradition of academic excellence, but it is no exam factory. Its aim is for students to become well-rounded, thoughtful, happy adults.

2018 brought the school's largest ever Year 7 intake and it can now reach more students than ever as it offers free transport on all its bus routes for new students.

You are invited to Wolsingham School's Open Evening from 6pm-pm on Thursday, September 27 to see what makes this school such a special place.
