Woodcote House

Welcome to Woodcote House School for boys

With many years’ experience of nurturing, guiding and educating boys, we believe the school’s traditional ethos, ‘Vive ut Discas et Disce ut Vivas’ — Live to Learn and Learn to Live’ — is as relevant today as ever.

Boys can join Woodcote at any age from 7 (Year 3) to 12 (Year 8) as Boarders or as Day Boys.

Very small class sizes (of around 10) ensure that a broad range of subjects can be taught in depth.

We know that if boys are enjoying themselves, they learn better. So we combine first class teaching with plenty of opportunities for outdoor activity throughout the day, enabling boys to be challenged both mentally and physically, with sport timetabled everyday.

One of the biggest lessons we teach our boys is learning to live with different people: a skill that will always play an important role in their future. Learning at Woodcote is learning for life.
