Welcome to the Walkwood Website
Our aim with this site is to provide an informative framework for parents, pupils and members of our community. We are a large middle school (Years 5 - 8) with outstanding facilities, a very attractive site and of paramount importance an extremely friendly school community. This community consists of :-
a supportive and harmonious governing body.
an incredibly friendly and happy staff team, well balanced in terms of age and gender and united in their determination to offer the children maximum opportunity to achieve their full potential.
confident, welcoming and positive pupils representing a broad range of abilities and home backgrounds.
A parent body that has so far backed the school at every stage. Showing 100% solidarity when the three tier (First, Middle and High School) system itself was under threat, donating generously to school funds and supporting school initiatives with commitment and enthusiasm.
Although we are a Church of England school we welcome pupils of all faiths and beliefs. Our church school status has nothing to do with indoctrination, but all to do with the emphasis we place on Christian values.
