Woodcote House

Welcome to Woodcote House School for boys

With many years’ experience of nurturing, guiding and educating boys, we believe the school’s traditional ethos, ‘Vive ut Discas et Disce ut Vivas’ — Live to Learn and Learn to Live’ — is as relevant today as ever.

Boys can join Woodcote at any age from 7 (Year 3) to 12 (Year 8) as Boarders or as Day Boys.

Very small class sizes (of around 10) ensure that a broad range of subjects can be taught in depth.

We know that if boys are enjoying themselves, they learn better. So we combine first class teaching with plenty of opportunities for outdoor activity throughout the day, enabling boys to be challenged both mentally and physically, with sport timetabled everyday.

One of the biggest lessons we teach our boys is learning to live with different people: a skill that will always play an important role in their future. Learning at Woodcote is learning for life.

Please come to Woodcote up the main drive (GU20 6PF for satnavs) to park on Back Field – there will be boys to show you the way.
The quickest way to walk to the Church is via the gate at the bottom right of Dominies Field and then down the path to Kennel Lane. Cross Kennel Lane and follow the Public Footpath to the left of the Old Post Office. This leads directly to the Church. This is about a 10 minute walk. Again, there will be boys and staff to point you in the right direction.
If the walk causes problems, there is some limited parking at the Church, but please let us know if you will require this. The Church postcode is GU20 6BL.
There is seating for approximately 275 – 300 in the Church. If you have not already contacted the school to say that you are coming, please do so – either by emailing mdkp@woodcotehouseschool.co.uk or telephoning 01276-472115. You will be given a number for each of you attending which you will have to check in with at the Church.
In the event of more than 300 attending, there will be a video link to the Church Hall next door, but an early reply should guarantee you a seat!
Afterwards there will be a light buffet lunch in a marquee, back at the school on Front Field. We hope all those who come to the Church will be able to attend this.

Headmasters Blog

Welcome to the Summer Term


It has been far too long since the last HM blog, for which I can only offer my profound apologies. I was meaning to write one earlier in the holidays but the effects of the school ski trip, which took place immediately after the end of term, clearly played havoc with my memory.  (more…)
