Akeley Wood School is an independent co-educational day school. The Senior School houses 560 children aged from eleven to eighteen on two sites, Akeley Wood House and Tile House Mansion.
The School’s primary aim is that pupils should develop their individual talents and personal qualities in whatever direction they may lie, although we do place a particular emphasis on the best possible academic achievement. Most importantly, we hope that pupils will genuinely enjoy and value their time here and will take with them not only the best possible qualifications, but also a sense of purpose, a belief in themselves, firm friendships and a caring attitude towards those around them.
Akeley Wood has a long tradition, but a direction that looks to the future, preparing young people for life in the twenty-first century. It offers a friendly and purposeful environment, with small classes and enthusiastic teaching, where good habits of work and independence of mind can flourish. It is a school without pretension, but with a happy and civilized atmosphere and a demonstrable record of success.
The School has recently received a cash injection of £8 million in support of further development and growth. In May 2015, Akeley Wood Senior School obtained an‘Outstanding’ Schools Inspection Report:
"The quality of the curriculum is outstanding. Coupled with excellent teaching, tight assessment procedures and critical use of data, it helps pupils of all abilities to make excellent progress from their relative starting points."
