Welcome to Wodensborough

Our "inclusive and welcoming" school "is improving across all key areas" and we are now full and over-subscribed at Key Stage 3. Personal development, behaviour and welfare are now "Good" as are Leadership and Management. We are very much on the journey to becoming a "Good" school and we are immensely proud of our achievements to date. We invest in our staff and value their work and their contribution to raising standards. We are proud to serve our local community and we are proud to be part of the Ormiston Academies Trust, a family of schools who are all committed to being the trust that makes the biggest difference.

As a key player on our leadership team you will play a vital role in our school improvement journey. You will join a supportive, highly talented and committed team of leaders and staff who have worked hard to secure record examination results and sustainable improvements across every area of provision.
