Welcome to Akeley Wood School

Akeley Wood School provides an independent, co-educational day school education from Nursery to Sixth Form. Our school is based across three stunning and historic sites that span the two counties of Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire, with plenty of wide open space in which to learn and grow.

We strongly believe in the value of the individual and aim to bring the very best out of your child in every way that we can, always encouraging our students to try new things and find their own individual passions.

Our academic offer is strong, class sizes are small and our teaching is of a high standard. Outside the classroom we offer a myriad of extra-curricular activities and opportunities, that coupled with a robust pastoral programme, create the ideal setting for the very best all-round holistic education.

Be You. Brilliantly.

From day one, we recognise and support every student’s unique personality and talents. We believe that it’s only when you are genuinely understood and appreciated that you have the confidence to be your best.

You. Finding Your Passion.

From textiles to triathlon, debating to further maths, it’s the sheer breadth of experiential and immersive learning at Akeley Wood that allows every one of our students to find their element and thrive in it.

You. Grasping Every Opportunity.

Deliberately small class sizes ensure our teachers give each child the time and attention they need to develop at their own pace, immerse themselves in what they enjoy and reach their full potential.

Facilities & Location

Explore our three idyllic campuses.

Our Senior School and Sixth Form campuses are set close to each other just a few miles north of the town of Buckingham in the rural heart of the county, while our Junior School campus is just a fifteen minute drive away on the Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire border. We have a large network of bus routes spanning 25 miles and three counties, as well as a shuttle bus service between sites for families with siblings across multiple campuses.

Each of the three sites are full of character with their own historic significance. The grand buildings have been adapted and equipped for a modern 21st century education with up to date classrooms and facilities to offer the very best environment in which to learn and flourish. The grounds offer excellent sports facilities, outdoor learning areas and big wide open green spaces in which to roam - something many of our students say they really value.

Akeley Wood School: 'The Door'

In our new school film, we wanted to represent not just the facilities and spaces of Akeley Wood School, but the feeling, the special community, the acceptance and the opportunities that can be found here.


We wanted to get across the sense that behind every door, there are exciting things going on to inspire every single person at the school, whether you are a four year old child feeling wonder every day as your educational journey start, or a Sixth Form student looking forward into the rest of your life armed with the experiences you have collected along the way.


We hope you enjoy your magical journey through Akeley Wood School!

We fell in love with it immediately – the sweeping driveway through fields on either side to a beautiful building that was once an 18th century country house. The playing fields overlook countryside, and not a car in sight.
