Parent, Akeley Wood School

Moving onto our Senior School

Akeley Wood Senior School is located across two historic sites just a mile apart in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, offering tranquil yet stimulating settings conducive to first class teaching and learning.

Excellence in the classroom is matched by similar distinction outside it – not least evident in our Enrichment Programme, which runs throughout the Senior School, our Exceptional Potential provision, and in the array of high quality activities offered to all students on an extra-curricular basis.

Latest Inspection Report

“The school’s provision for pupils with SEND and EAL is outstanding because the curriculum is well adapted to their needs. There is a very good range of clubs and activities which Akeley Wood Junior School report 5 April 2016 are much appreciated by pupils and their parents: many of these take place after school.”

We are delighted that the Junior School report describes our pupils as “well-rounded individuals who are keen to learn” and notes they are “happy, courteous and friendly.”

Forest School

Delivered by our accredited Forest School practitioner, every child in Junior School participates in this innovative educational approach to teaching outdoors, through learning and play that staff and children alike have embraced. The academic, social, emotional and health benefits of forest schooling are immense.  Not only does the practice represent a unique way to build trust and self-esteem in children, but it also teaches them important new life skills and hands-on learning.

During a week day, open day or private tour you will meet the Head and other key staff as well as see the school in action on a typical school day.
