Thank you for taking the time to read this information, whether you are doing so because your daughter or son may join Wadham School next September, or because you are interested in finding out about the school for the future.

We are a learning community in which all young people are supported and encouraged to achieve their potential. We are as proud of the students who achieve the highest grades in public examinations, as we are of those whose progress opens up for them possibilities otherwise closed. Our curriculum provides for all equally.

The school values the partnerships which ensure that students are able to benefit to the full from their time in school. The most important of these is with parents. We believe that together we can help our young people make the most of their learning and prepare them for the demands of an ever changing world.

At Wadham School we want our young people to be independent of thought, confident in developing their skills and knowledge, committed to the well being of others, sensitive to and tolerant of difference and to have a sense of their own worth. The guidance and support of dedicated teachers and support staff helps them to be the best they can be.

For those young people who will be joining us next September I hope the recent Open Evening was the beginning of a positive transition and that you will have a happy, fulfilled and successful time at the school. For those reading this with the future in mind I look forward to seeing you at the school and hope that this information answers some of your questions. Please do not hesitate to contact the school for any further information.
