Wood Green School is a popular, 11-18 mixed comprehensive school with an excellent academic and pastoral reputation. It has a thriving Sixth Form.
The library is at the heart of our school. It is a special place, valued by staff and students across all year groups and the PTA are keen to support its future development. In the current climate, our school has made maintaining and developing the library a priority and you will be valued and supported in your role.
Reading and research play a significant role at our school with a number of exciting initiatives. For example, all students in years 7 and 8 take part in the Accelerated Reader programme; Year 7s have special lessons in research through our Academic Enrichment course and all 6th form students take the EPQ qualification.
