Pastoral Care

I am understood

The success of a school and its pupils is rooted in the quality of its pastoral care. We offer our pupils the support they need to flourish and grow – both during their time at the Grove and also as they move forward into the world beyond our school gates.

Academic Strength

I am the best of me

We are often asked, “Are you an academic school?” The answer is: Yes we are! We are both academically ambitious and academically sensitive, unlocking the potential of  each individual. We want our pupils to believe there is no glass ceiling to their academic attainment.

Grove Sport

I am my unlocked potential

The Grove is well known for its proud sporting heritage. Our success lies in ensuring that every student, whatever their experience or ability, is offered a myriad of sporting opportunities, uncovering and nurturing talent – and having a lot of fun on the way.

Performing Arts

I am everything I want to be

Woodhouse Grove has a vibrant, inclusive and diverse Performing Arts scene – with something for everyone, whatever their interest. Find out more from Mr Tedd, Director of Performing Arts and some of our pupils.

Joining The Grove

I am prepared

The move into Year 7 can be a nerve-wracking time for pupils and parents. At the Grove, we try to make this shift as easy and seamless as possible. Some of our Year 7s and their parents talk about their experiences.


I am an individual, yet part of something incredible

Having a Boarding community adds so much to school life – and boarding here is the perfect way to make the most of everything the Grove has to offer.

I am Grovian.
