Woodlea Primary School is a one-form entry school, situated in the beautiful country village of Woldingham in Surrey.

The school joined Tandridge Learning Trust in May 2017 along with three other local primary schools and one secondary school. We all work closely together to offer the best possible education for all pupils, seeking improved outcomes through mutual support and collaboration.

The main school building is a former country house which has been adapted for school use with the addition of a hall, kitchen and cloakroom areas. We also have an additional, purpose-built, four-class junior building adjacent to the house. The grounds provide a rich and varied environment including woods, a pond and an environmental area in addition to our ‘paddock’, a multi-use games area and a trim trail. The nearby Glebe offers sporting facilities for team games and athletics.

Our friendly school is very much about partnership; our children are full of enthusiasm and are well supported by dedicated, experienced staff and we are lucky to also benefit from excellent parental involvement. The governors and trustees are now looking to appoint an inspirational leader with the vision and skill to continue the journey towards our realistic ambition to be ‘Outstanding’.
