Welcome to Wrotham School
Welcome to Wrotham School. High expectations, challenge and opportunity are central to our school. As soon as you enter the school you will sense the strong ethos that underlines everything we do. The achievement of our students speaks for itself and highlights the high quality teaching and support that our students receive every day. Wrotham is a popular co-educational day school for pupils aged 11-18 with a current roll of 770. There were 450 applications for 140 Year 7 places in September 2016. We have been heavily oversubscribed for the past ten years. We have a growing sixth form which now benefits from a fantastic new Sixth Form Resource Centre as part of our new building which opened in February 2013.
High Expectations, Challenge and Opportunity
We have a well-deserved reputation as a school that challenges students to reach their potential in a friendly, caring and well-disciplined environment. Care, guidance and support for students is outstanding and contributes strongly to the success of our students. We have excellent staff – professional, lively and supportive, and the Leadership Team is committed to consultation and an open style of management. All staff are encouraged to participate in continuing professional development and there is a massive commitment to a wide range of extra-curricular activities for students.
The school has a clear focus on teaching and learning. The most recent full OfSTED (May 2015) has judged the school to be good with outstanding features mentioned in the report.
Leadership and management was judged as Good and as a team we are dedicated to ensuring that all our students thrive at Wrotham School.
In September 2011 our new state of the art 3G all weather pitch was completed and is proving to be a real asset to the school and local community. A new £3 million building opened in February 2013 which includes eleven new classrooms and an impressive sixth form resource centre. This summer we completed a total refurbishment of our SEND support building and further updated our fast growing ICT network.
We are incredibly proud of our students and of our school.
