Word From The Head

Oliver Paterson

Woodcote is a family school, placing special emphasis on the individual, encouraging them to achieve the best academic results possible, whilst also offering them countless opportunities to find their passion and, ultimately, to discover what makes them happy.

With an average of 10-12 boys in each class, my experienced and dynamic staff are able to support and stretch boys academically in equal measure, allowing them to progress at a quick rate, but one that is realistic and tailored towards each boy. We are proud of our academic success, with boys going on to the top independent schools in the country. Most importantly, having small classes means no boy is allowed to drift or coast through lessons. The staff get to know the boys extremely well and work out quickly the best way to get the most out of each individual.

With Sport, Art, Drama and Music embedded into our curriculum but also with a range of extra-curricular activities from chess to cookery, and from golf to gardening, every boy is afforded the chance to find their niche and is supported to pursue what they love.

Our principal message to boys is: “Be your kindest to everyone, and try your hardest at everything.” If they can do that, I have no doubt that they will make successes of themselves, and leave us equipped with all the tools to thrive at Senior School and in life.

I look forward to meeting you.

    Sending our son to Woodcote House was one of the best decisions we made. It is a school that really understands how to teach boys brilliantly, both in and out of the classroom. It is a school that turns boys in to delightful young men ready for whatever their next step in education will be. We...  


    The best school a boy could hope to attend. Our son arrived at Woodcote with a number of learning challenges and lack of confidence in his academic abilities. Four years later and he has been offered places at every senior school for which he applied (6 of them), has won school academic prizes and...  


    Woodcote House School is a fantastic school. Our sons have thrived not just academically but socially and both have got places in their schools of choice for next level. It took only minutes of visiting WHS, and seeing how courteous but importantly happy the boys were, to decide it was the right...
