Wolfreton provides an excellent education and the widest possible choice within available resources. We are proud of Wolfretons excellent record of academic and sporting success which prepares our students for their future lives and careers. I am confident that your child will have every opportunity to succeed at Wolfreton.

Wolfreton has been recognised as an Investor in People for the high standard of its staff development and communications. We are traditional enough to insist on high standards of school dress and behaviour. We are progressive enough to believe that pupils learn better when they are helped to take responsibility for their own learning and to work hard to achieve their full potential. Wolfreton teachers are known for their caring approach with pupils of all abilities and give a great amount of time to extra-curricular activities. Annually, pupils take part in over 250 teams, clubs and events.
