About Us

Aspiration, Resilience, Opportunity, Excellence, is our ethos.  These four pillars underpin all we do and drive us forward as one learning community.

We have the privilege to be able to teach and learn, as an 11-16 Academy, in a £26 million building.  Woodlands School is proud to serve the people of Basildon and we are constantly striving to be better.  We are focused on ensuring academic excellence for all our youngsters, allowing them the opportunity to thrive at further and higher education.

We encourage all of our youngsters to have the highest of aspirations and look to equip them with all the tools they need to become even more resilient.  We offer the widest opportunities to ensure excellence becomes a habit.

Our expectation is that all at Woodlands School work hard and are self-motivated.  All are to lead their own learning, be polite and respectful.  Our boundaries are clear and they support all in ensuring they can maintain the highest standards.

We will provide a wealth of opportunities to learn in and beyond the classroom.  Adding cultural capital and ensuring experiences develop the whole child. Welcome once again to our school.
