Wood School is a highly selective girls’ state secondary school, with a
co-educational Sixth Form. The school is heavily oversubscribed. Students here
achieve the highest academic standards whilst also benefitting from exceptional
pastoral care. Our school badge, with its symbol of the acorn and the motto Fortitudine Crescamus, meaning ‘may we
grow in strength’, symbolises the idea of growth, both for the school and for
the individual. We are a diverse and inclusive school with a wide catchment
area. We pride ourselves on an excellent range of extra-curricular opportunities
to complement our academic courses. The vast majority of our students progress
to Russell Group Universities at the end of our Sixth Form.
We are exceptionally proud of our students. They are bright and happy young
people who enjoy being at school, each bringing unique talents to our
community. Newstead students have freedom and security to be themselves, and
many opportunities to follow their interests and aspirations. We know them as
individuals and support them to grow as thinking young people and active
citizens, ready to take positions of responsibility and leadership on leaving
