Welcome to The Woodrush High School and Sixth Form Centre. Our website is intended to be a window into the school providing you with an insight into daily life as well as our ethos and priorities.
The Woodrush High School is a dynamic and thriving community of learners. We recognise that all adults and young people are learners, learning in different kinds of ways and with different aptitudes and skills. We have a reputation for utilising a variety of approaches to learning from fast tracking and individualised learning programmes through to our Alternative Curricula days and imagintive use of ICT. These developments are driven by our very successful Teaching and Learning group. We have our sights firmly focused on the future while being rooted in traditional values of courtesy, co-operation and caring for others.
We believe in building an ethos where it is 'cool to Achieve'. This is reinforced by our high expectations and our positive use of rewards culminating in our Annual Awards Evening celebrating the successes of our students. Year on year our results have been above the national average and we have an excellent record of value added compared to similar schools. Our parents recognise and value this success. We enjoy excellent support from our community and we are consistently over subscribed.
The hallmarks of this school are its quality and diversity of achievement.
The school opened in 1957 built on two fields - the 'Woodrush Field' at the front of the school and the 'Houndfield Field' at the rear.
The school takes its name from the 'Woodrush Field'. Occupying the central part of the school badge is the Worcester Black Pear tree standing on the banks of the River Severn. This motif was taken from the the Worcestershire coat of arms. The two hounds, Talbot hounds, represent the Houndfield estate on which the greater part of the school was built.
