Working Pattern

The Wordsley School is a truly remarkable place. What makes our school so very special is its culture and ethos. Pupils enjoy coming to school and are successful in their learning, because of the exceptionally high level of care and support that it provides to them on an individual basis and unashamedly, the very high standards that we expect and demand of our pupils in terms of their uniform, behaviour and their commitment to learning.

Our school is oversubscribed and as such, in support of our local community, we recently expanded from a five-form to a seven-form entry school. This transition began in September 2019 with our first cohort of Year 7 pupils and will continue for the next five years until all year groups have a roll of 211 in September 2025. To support this expansion, the construction of our £6M state of the art English block and Sports Hall is almost at the point of completion and will be completed in the summer term later this academic year. Consisting of 13 classrooms, the English block will cater for all English provision in our school and will include a purpose-built library. Adjacent to this will sit the new Sports Hall; with both new blocks surrounded by a large hard-surface recreational area for our pupils to socialise and spend time together.
