School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The headteacher was appointed in January 2015, just over six months after the previous inspection. The school is smaller than the average sized 11­16 school.

The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium is well above average and increasing. The pupil premium is funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and for children looked after.

A number of Year 7 pupils receive catch-up funding which is for those who did not achieve level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of primary school. Over 80% of pupils are of White British heritage with very small numbers from several minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average. The school's inclusion unit, situated in the community wing rather than in the main school, provides short-term, alternative provision for up to eight pupils in each key stage. It has the specific aim of supporting re-integration back into mainstream lessons. On rare occasions, pupils attend full-time alternative educational provision at the Polygon or Compass schools. In 2015, the school met the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school meets the requirements on the publication of information on its website.

In June 2016, representatives of the Hamwic Trust carried out a due diligence review of Woodlands Community College. An expression of interest has been forwarded to the Department for Education and the regional schools commissioner. The review recommended that once the school's financial commitments have been re-organised, it should be `welcomed into the Trust's multi-academy structure'.
