At Woodcote High School, we work collaboratively with The Collegiate Trust schools to deliver the shared vision of an ‘exceptional education for all.’ We passionately believe that ‘Learning Changes Lives’ and are determined that through our school values of excellence, responsibility and aspiration, all pupils will develop to their full potential during their time at Woodcote High School.
Woodcote High School pupils will leave the school well-prepared for the next stage in their education, and equipped with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and resilience to ensure they can contribute positively to society and have access to further life-long learning opportunities. We will foster understanding, tolerance and mutual respect whilst producing confident, capable, and respectful young people.
The Woodcote High School ASPIRE programme is part of our drive to improve standards and student achievement. Ultimately, we believe it will improve the experience that all members of the Woodcote community have during their time here
Our ASPIRE programme helps us achieve greatness every day in our own learning and personal development.
Woodcote High School is part of The Collegiate Trust (TCT). The Trust works in the boroughs of Croydon and Crawley, educating children and young people from 3-19 years of age with a clear vision to deliver exceptional education for all. Such an education achieves excellent outcomes in pupil progress and attainment, a rich creative, cultural and physical learning experience, and great personal and social development for all pupils.
Teaching and Learning at Woodcote High
Woodcote High School is on an exciting journey and is going to build on its strong history and is absolutely determined to become a remarkable school.
We do not just wish to be an outstanding school in every respect but one of the most outstanding schools in the entire country. We have unashamedly high aspirations for the students in our care both pastorally and academically. We have no doubt that every child who joins us will have every opportunity to reach their full potential and leave us exceptionally well-placed for a happy and successful future.
We want to ensure that our students live by our ASPIRE principles of high Ambition, Self-reliance, Perseverance, Inquisitiveness, Respect and Enthusiasm for life. We also recognise that delivering first-class exam results is an equally fundamental responsibility. We have developed our curriculum to be not only academically rigorous but to foster a culture of excellence in our students.
We also understand that not all of our students are the same, so our curriculum is created with these differences in mind. From a balanced and broad starting point, we seek to challenge all students to ensure they experience as much as they can in the short time that they are in compulsory education.
Children are talented in many different ways, and it is our duty to ensure that our sportsmen and women, our musicians, our artists, and our sculptors are all encouraged to explore the unique nature of their interests and talents. We want to ensure that each of our students achieve success, in every way possible, and we are committed to ensuring that we achieve this goal.
Success will be achieved by all stakeholders working together in partnership as we see parents and school working in complete synergy to deliver remarkable outcomes for all our students. We will challenge and support students to meet our high standards and this will, ultimately help us to grow our students into the happy adults that we wish to develop.
As a learning organisation, the school is committed to providing opportunities for all staff to continue to develop professionally.
A strong focus at Woodcote High is on staff working together to develop their practice. Our aim is to be an ‘outstanding’ school by looking at new ways to develop teaching, helping staff to reflect on their practice and continuously seeking to develop and improve the learning experience of all students.
Staff at all stages of their career can expect to be supported in developing their practice.
