Welcome to Wadham School


We are a learning community in which all young people are supported and encouraged to achieve their potential. We are as proud of the students who achieve the highest grades in public examinations, as we are of those whose progress opens up for them possibilities otherwise closed. Our curriculum provides for all equally.

The school values the partnerships which ensure that students are able to benefit to the full from their time in school. The most important of these is with parents. We believe that together we can help our young people make the most of their learning and prepare them for the demands of an ever changing world.

At Wadham School we want our young people to be independent of thought, confident in developing their skills and knowledge, committed to the well-being of others, sensitive to and tolerant of difference and to have a sense of their own worth. The guidance and support of dedicated teachers and support staff helps them to be the best they can be.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school for any further information.

  • Over many years Wadham Sixth Form has given generations of students the opportunity to gain the grades and skills needed to open up life-changing opportunities in Higher Education or the world of work.
  • Students choose Wadham Sixth Form because, following on from their Lower School experience, they know that we can deliver on results, experiences and preparation for their future.
