Wolfreton is a large and forward-thinking school. We are an ambitious community and recognise the impact of exceptional staff on the development of our positive and engaged student body.
Wolfreton is a large comprehensive school with over 1500 students on roll, including those in our 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.
Historically, Wolfreton was a split-site school, however in 2016 we took possession of our new single site school. Having had the opportunity to work with the design team and construction company during the build period, many have had an input into the new school building and its facilities. This has ensured that the building really can deliver. Staff and students alike are now enjoying the benefits of high-quality accommodation, equipped with the latest technology and specialist facilities that are amongst the best in the region.
Wolfreton is a good and ambitious school. Having been graded in good in our Section 5 Inspection in all areas in 2013, this was endorsed again when they most recently inspected the school in October 2021. Motivated by our Vision and Values, we aspire for great things and continue to work to secure further improvements across the school. Staff are ambitious and students are too; students are keen to work with staff and take advantage of the many opportunities they are offered.
At Wolfreton students and staff enjoy the benefits that being part of a large school affords them. One of our recognised strengths is our pastoral care. All students benefit from the support of a Head of Year and Pastoral Manager. They work hard to ensure that each individual is known and matters. Each student and staff member is also allocated a House and takes part in competitions and charitable events as part of their House, ensuring that everyone is part of their own team, as well as being part of the school team and wider Trust.
Our students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum and specialist teaching ensures that engagement and progress can continue to increase for all. To deliver this the school maintains 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.
The Sixth Form College is focused on providing high quality teaching and care to secure the best achievement and outcomes for all. Students are able to study at Wolfreton as well as having the option to study subjects at one of the other Consortium Sixth Form College campuses. The Sixth Form has a dedicated suite of teaching rooms and facilities within the building, giving it a bespoke Sixth Form College feel in this area. Sixth Form students play a full roll in the life of the school, but equally will continue to enjoy the advantages of this dedicated provision.
As a school we firmly believe opportunities and experiences play a huge role in enabling young people to develop their skills and attributes beyond the classroom. The school prides itself on the wide range of extra-curricular opportunities offered to our students. Annually, students take part in over 250 teams, clubs, and events. Staff give a great amount of time to these and the students and school have achieved many accolades in the widest range of fields.
The school has a strong community ethos. We have built close links with employers and have developed links both nationally and internationally. We also support many charity initiatives and have good relationships with community partners.
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.
Our school is committed to the values encapsulated in our strapline, ‘The Wolfreton Way – Excellence, Endeavour, Respect’, the school really is at an exciting stage of its development, and we hope these resonate with you too.
