Founded in 1812 and situated on a beautiful 70 acre campus, with outstanding sports facilities, Woodhouse Grove provides a first class all round education for boys and girls which was graded as excellent by ISI at their last inspection. Conveniently located close to major air, railway and motorway networks, the 750 pupils at Woodhouse Grove (11-18) benefit from small class sizes, first class facilities, and a breadth of opportunity that readily allow this family centred school to guide our pupils to achieve their full potential. We are proud that each year pupils accept places at Oxford and Cambridge along with numerous Russell group universities.

Our 100 boarders enjoy happy, caring, friendly boarding houses and a secure and safe environment on this beautiful countryside campus. Our 'home from home' atmosphere, and an ever changing range of weeknight and weekend activities and trips contribute to the fun and enjoyment of being a boarder at the Grove. 

Academically ambitious and academically sensitive, the progress of each pupil is monitored by heads of year in school and by a houseparent with academic house tutors in the boarding house where regular meetings take place to support and guide. Our international students are drawn from all over the world and are mentored by English boarding and day pupils to help them integrate and encourage their wider use of the English language along with nurturing their academic development.

We are a school where traditional values are central to our warm and friendly community.  Wherever a child’s ability lies, we will seek to nurture and encourage its development on their route to becoming a “Grovian”.
