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.

This website will give you some insight into life at Woodhey and give you up to date information about the many activities and successes at the school.

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.

Upcoming Events


Virtual Open Evening

Woodhey would usually have had an Open Evening and Open Day in the last week of September for Year5/6 students and their parents and carers. This is usually a packed event with over 800 visitors and the event is usually supported by 100 staff and over 250 of our students. With increasing rates of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we have made a decision not to hold a live Open evening this year.

Please follow the link to our Virtual Open Evening video. Early next week, this will be joined by a second video filmed by our own students, where they tell you their perspectives of the school.

Copies of our prospectus will be sent to our local primary schools on 4th October. If your child is from outside of the area, you may request a copy by emailing the school at woodhey@bury.gov.uk. PDF copies will be sent by return.
