PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION AT WHS
The PTA at Woodchurch High School is made up of a team of dedicated and enthusiastic parents, staff and friends of the school.
The monthly meetings are lively and friendly and we are always looking for keen new members who have fresh ideas. The meetings are always attended by the Headteacher and the Deputy Headteacher, who give an up to date report on school issues/developments. The members appreciate this opportunity to be kept informed and to give their point of view.
The PTA raises money for the school by organising different events throughout the school year. Some of these events are:
- The WHS PTA 100 Club, Christmas Carol Singing, Raffle & Cake Sale, Summer Fair, Refreshment Sales at Local Events and even Bag Packing at local Supermarkets.
- The money raised is used to buy extra equipment for the benefit of all pupils or to subsidise school trips.
Please also look under Past Events for other details of our PTA events.
New members will be made very welcome at our meetings, please contact Steve Connor per the details below if you wish to attend. We will look forward to meeting you.

5 REASONS TO JOIN US
1. Established Excellence
2. Excellent Examination Results
3. Excellent Facilities
4. Anglican Ethos
5. Inclusive School
Pupils' attainment is significantly above national averages in English, geography, history and religious education and above the national average in mathematics.
The percentage of pupils who gained five or more GCSE grade A* to C in English and mathematics was above the national average in 2015. The percentage of pupils gaining five or more GCSEs grade A* to grade G has consistently been above national averages for three years.
Pupils' expected progress in English and mathematics was above national averages in 2015.
Leaders have taken effective action to narrow the gap between the achievement of pupils who are disadvantaged and other pupils in the school and nationally. Gaps in English are closing more rapidly than in mathematics.
Teaching assistants are well deployed to support the needs of pupils. Teachers and support staff know their pupils well and anticipate their needs so that barriers to learning are removed.
Teachers benefit from regular scheduled professional development opportunities.
Leaders ensure that assessments are rigorously and frequently implemented across the curriculum to establish the depth of pupil's understanding.
You have developed an effective careers education and guidance programme. This results in a high proportion of pupils successfully continuing in education, training or employment after Year 11.
Parents who completed Ofsted's online questionnaire, Parent View, agree that their child is well looked after. Parents hold teachers and leaders of the school in high regard and recognise the efforts made to ensure that their children thrive and achieve.
Pupils' behaviour and their attitudes to learning are good. Teachers consistently uphold the behaviour policy and this promotes an environment where pupils can enjoy learning.
