I have been a Governor at Woodcote for 12 years dating to before the Infants & Junior School Amalgamated to see the school grow and flourish into the outstanding school it is today. My daughter attended from Woodies and is currently in the 6th form at Woodcote High School. I passionately believe all children should get the opportunity to outstanding education and the value of a school is not just measured by the SATS results but more importantly producing confident, able and independent learners.
