WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE & OUR SCHOOL

 

At Allestree Woodlands, we pride ourselves on the warm and friendly atmosphere of the school. Relationships are important and we endeavour to ensure that every student feels safe and happy. We strive for the best achievements for our students and believe that every young person deserves the chance to feel successful at school.

Our school motto, ‘Aspire and Achieve’, sums up our hopes and expectations for every student who is part of our school community. But, we know that aspiration is a risky business; after all, if you dream big, there is always that chance that you might not reach your ambitious goal. This means that staff at Allestree Woodlands must build bravery and courage in the ways they teach and the relationships they form with students. We must both support and challenge all young people to aspire, to dream of what might lie ahead and to work hard to make those ambitious goals possible. Why settle for less than our very best? When aspiration and hard work are combined, people achieve amazing things. That is our aim at Allestree Woodlands: to see every young person aspire to reach or exceed their potential and work hard towards that goal, in turn receiving excellent teaching and support to achieve it and to feel a sense of self-worth and pride in doing so.

We are lucky to be a thriving school with a growing intake, a wide level 3 subject offer at post-16, superb extra-curricular opportunities in sports, technology and the creative and performing arts as well as possessing tremendous facilities. If you would like to know more, take a look at our website or arrange a visit. We have open evenings planned for this half-term for prospective students and their parents and you are most welcome to come along and get a feel for what Allestree Woodlands is all about.
