Head’s Welcome

Woodborough C of E School

Welcome to Woodborough Church of England Primary School.

Woodborough School is set in a village location overlooked by the Marlborough Downs. We have approximately 170 pupils accommodated in seven classes. We aim to create an atmosphere in which all children are valued and value their place in a Christian school community. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff know each of our children as individuals and academic achievement, high standards of work and respectful, considerate behaviour are encouraged. Strong emphasis is placed on our pupils’ ability to socialise, have empathy with others and to think creatively.

Our school provides a broad, stimulating and inclusive curriculum where learning through experience is a priority. Pupil visits, both day and residential, and regular themed weeks enhance learning and teaching and a wide variety of outside visitors to the school provide variety, breadth and enrichment.

We firmly believe in fostering strong and positive relationships between home and school. Many opportunities arise for parents to become involved with school life and we take great pride in being at the heart of the community. We are certain that children perform best when we all work together.

Over the years our school site has been remodelled to meet the changing needs of the school population. Developments have seen the addition of a kitchen, administrative areas, a spacious school hall and most recently our Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes have been redesigned and we’ve added a fantastic new outdoor learning area. The extensive school grounds are continually being developed to create learning areas for environmental study and stimulating places to play.

You are always welcome to come and meet our best ambassadors, our learners. Every day is an open day and although our website will give you an insight into our daily life and facilities, it will possibly not answer all of your questions. The atmosphere and ethos of our school is less easy to convey and nothing is quite as good as a personal visit.  Why not call us to come and take a tour of our lovely school and experience for yourselves what we like to call the ‘Woodborough Magic’.

We look forward to meeting you.
Yours sincerely,

Mrs Katie Scaplehorn
