Welcome to Woodham Academy. In the current circumstances it is not possible to hold our traditional Open Evening for Year Six parents and students to come and see the school.

In order to give you a picture of what Woodham is like and introduce some of the staff and students in our school we have produced several video presentations to act as a virtual tour.

Choosing a secondary school for your child can be a daunting task. In this video Mr Bell and a selection of Woodham students and staff answer questions which prospective parents have asked regarding our ethos, values and how Woodham Academy has grown, progressed and continues to develop new opportunities for our community.

What do our parents think?


You've researched secondary schools, you've looked at league tables and grades, you've watched our presentation and heard from our staff and students. What people really want to know is how Woodham Academy works for parents and families.

Several parents of our students have been kind enough to contribute short videos explaining how they have found Woodham Academy from their point of view and from the experience of their children.
