Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and we hope that this website gives you the relevant information. However, there is nothing like visiting in person for getting a flavour of the school, and discovering what a very special place it is.

The best schools know that education should be concerned with the personal development of the whole child, intellectual, physical, moral, spiritual, social, aesthetic and emotional. 

We aim to provide a broad curriculum to nurture growth in all these areas. We recognise that the rate of development in each of these areas varies from child to child, therefore our curriculum and teaching methods are designed to help each child realise his or her maximum potential.

Woodmancote School believes that by building self-esteem and confidence, equipping pupils with skills to learn, by working together as a team and by involving all stakeholders (parents and others), it will ensure a continuous improvement in its high standards of teaching and learning.

Please read the Prospectus and then come and spend some time here. You will receive a very warm welcome. 

The school admissions criteria is as follows:

  1. ‘Looked after children’ – children in the care of the local authority or those who subsequently become subject to adoption or residence.
  2. Children who will have siblings attending the school at the time the applicant child is admitted.
  3. Children with the strongest geographical claim, measured in a straight line from the child’s ordnance survey address point to that of the school.

For details of Gloucestershire County Council’s admissions process, including their over-subscription criteria and appeal arrangements, that the school must adhere to, see in-year admissions and new reception admissions.

Parents wishing to apply for their child to attend the school should contact the school office to obtain an in-year application form, which needs to be completed and returned to the school along with a proof of address. Parents are strongly encouraged to also contact the school office to arrange a visit to the school.
