School Life

Being part of Akeley Wood School is fantastic for lots of great reasons. One fundamental reason is that we are small enough for everyone to feel well-known and enjoy a sense of belonging. Happily, we’re big and busy enough to field lots of sports teams, stage productions, have clubs like the debating society and host events for our families including WoodFest, Life Lectures, Colour Run and the Christmas Market.

We don’t have a ‘quiet term’; the calendar is always full from Nursery and Junior at Wicken Park to Years 7 and 8 at Tile House Mansion and Year 9 upwards at Akeley Wood House.

For any more information on events at Akeley Wood School, check out our Events Calendar which details all of our scheduled events, trips and sports fixtures for our Nursery, Junior and Senior Schools.
