Ethos & Values


At Woodlands we see and hear every child. We build strong relationships based on respect, empathy and love and use these relationships as a base for safe and positive learning experiences.

We provide a nurturing environment where everyone can grow and flourish. Where all students are supported to reach their potential, to ‘Be the Best’ and leave us fully prepared for adulthood. At Woodlands, our holistic approach supports both personal and academic progression and our students know that this is where they belong.

This is The Woodlands Way.


  • For all students to overcome their barriers to learning and to realise their talents and potential through safe and nurturing learning experiences.
  • For all students to learn how to positively express themselves and to understand and appreciate the expressions and opinions of others.
  • For all students to have a clear understanding of their own goals, how they can be achieved and make positive choices towards their short, medium and longer term objectives.
  • For all students to become reflective, responsible, valued, productive and independent citizens.
