Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College is a large comprehensive school with over 1500 students on roll, including 230 in the Sixth Form. We are a successful school with a positive and engaged student body and a dedicated and talented staff.

The school is set in the attractive leafy suburbs of the East Riding of Yorkshire close to the Wolds and only seven miles from the market town of Beverley. The catchment area covers the pleasant residential districts of Willerby, Kirk Ella and Anlaby in the East Riding of Yorkshire. These are relatively affluent areas with good quality housing and access to varied leisure opportunities. Proximity to the M62 ensures easy access to the motorway network and other major cities in Yorkshire and beyond.

Standards of attainment at Wolfreton exceed the national average. In 2018, 86% of students gained a grade 4 in English and 80% did so in maths. Students enjoy access to a broad and balanced curriculum, and specialist teaching ensures that engagement and progress can continue to increase for all.

The school is a disciplined and well-organised environment. We have high standards of school dress and have clear expectations on punctuality, attendance and behaviour. Our students are positive and respond well in all aspects of school life.

Wolfreton remains a popular choice for secondary education. Our annual intake of 270 students is taken mainly from five neighbouring primary schools, with whom we have excellent and close relationships. We are also committed to high quality induction and ongoing training and staff development.
