Wood Green High School is a thriving and vibrant Community. It is a rather unusual Comprehensive school because we are a Specialist Sports, Maths and Computing College as well as a “normal” school. This means that as well as doing the National Curriculum subjects, we also offer a huge range of sports activities – something to suit everyone’s taste and level of ability. We have a large Health and Fitness Suite, a superb Sports Hall with Indoor and Outdoor Cricket Nets, professional standard table tennis facilities as well as two gymnasia, extensive playing fields and the opportunity to try more unusual sports such as rock climbing and whitewater rafting, for example.
We have excellent ICT facilities, with whiteboards in all subjects and one computer for every two students, with equipment we can also loan out. All our teachers have Laptop Computers and are very proficient in the use of ICT. In Maths, we have developed many fun programmes to help everyone with their numeracy.
In 2007, our new teaching block, the Hughes Building, will open in the centre of our school. This will house the Sixth Form Centre, Maths, English and three new Science labs. It has been designed by the School Change Team to provide state of the art learning facilities.
Wood Green High School, College of Sport has an excellent reputation for the politeness of its pupils and the calm, well-disciplined way everyone approaches their studies. Smart school uniform, excellent attendance and punctuality, good homework habits and first class teaching are the expected standard at Wood Green. Last year we have had to disappoint over 400 young people who have not been able to gain a place here in September.
As having just started at Wood Green, I aim to enhance the high levels of achievement that Wood Green High School has made its trade mark. If you are prepared to work hard and join in everything that we have to offer, you too will look forward to coming to school. Then you will achieve those excellent examination results which everyone needs to get a good job – and, remember, at Wood Green you can stay on to the 6th form to study for a place at University, if you work hard.
We are all proud of belonging to the family of Wood Green High School College of Sport, Maths and Computing and it helps us to maintain those very high standards which has made us into one of the best comprehensive schools in the country.
