Welcome to Woodlands Wem. We are a Shropshire Local Authority special school catering for pupils in Key Stage 3 and 4 who have social. Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH). We cater for up to 56 pupils from year 7 to Year 11, organised in teaching groups of 8. Each group is usually taught by one teacher and one Special Support Assistant. The high staff to pupil ratio within classrooms is recognition that pupils coming to Woodlands School have a range of learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties which require a significantly higher level of support.
