Welcome to

The Wordsley School

High Expectations + Challenge = Success


Hello Year 6!

We can't hold our usual Open Evening or Open Mornings this year, so we have produced a video. It's the next best thing!

You may also like to see what you would be studying in Year 7. We've picked out the key bits and have added it here.

We know starting secondary school is a big thing and we want to help you as much as we can with this change. We would love to hear your questions about life at The Wordsley School. Ask your parent/guardian to contact us.

We can't wait to meet you all.

The first half term

I can't quite believe that we find ourselves at the half-term break already. Thank you so much for your unwavering support in what has been a half term, quite like no other.

Please find attached some information that will be of interest to you as we move into the second half of this term.

Our Philosophy

Everyone has the right to learn

  • We educate young people to the highest standard to ensure that their potential is realised.

Everyone shows respect for others

  • We value all pupils equally and constantly promote a sense of purpose, self-confidence and shared values.

Everyone takes responsibility for their actions

  • We expect hard work and highest standards of attendance, behaviour, punctuality and appearance.

House Point Totals

We're really proud of the achievements from our pupils.

We recognise them through the awarding of Achievement Points and Attitude to Learning Points.

These get turned into House Points.
