At Woodhey High School, pupils are at the centre of everything we do. We strive hard to help each child to maximise their achievement and develop into confident and successful individuals, prepared for future challenges in an ever-changing world.
As both a Headteacher and a parent, I want the same for your child as I would for my own. This includes excellent teaching and learning, up-to-date facilities and extensive opportunities beyond the curriculum, all in a secure and caring environment. You will find that Woodhey fulfils all of these expectations, with an experienced, supportive and forward-thinking staff who are always looking to help the school improve further.
The strengths and positive ethos of our school are best seen at first hand, and I invite you all to visit Woodhey and see for yourself.

Brian Roadnight, Headteacher
