The school is over-subscribed. Wollaston School was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in April 2017. We are a founding school of the Nene Valley Partnership—a Multi-Academy Trust committed to Excellence in Education, which opened in April 2019.

PE is taught to all students throughout Key Stage 3; students have a 1 hour 40 minute lesson and a 50 minute lesson each week. At Key Stage 4, as well as Core PE which is taught to all students, GCSE and Vocational PE courses are offered. The subject is also popular in the Sixth Form and several students go on to study PE or health-related courses at higher education each year. Examination outcomes at both GCSE and A-level are strong and the faculty offers a busy and extra-curricular timetable of fixtures and clubs.

We offer a comprehensive employee benefits package including support of the Teacher Pension Scheme, Cycle to Work Scheme, Discounted Onsite Gym Membership and Onsite Parking.
