Woolmer Hill is a successful mixed, comprehensive academy of approximately 800 students aged from 11 to 16 years. We are situated on a beautiful site on the outskirts of Haslemere, and the school attracts students from a wide area including Thursley, Grayshott, Hindhead, Beacon Hill, Chiddingfold, Grayswood, Liphook and Churt, as well as Haslemere itself.

We have an inclusive approach to educating the whole person, based upon an ethos of mutual respect and active involvement in all aspects of school life. We believe that all members of our school community should be challenged to achieve their full potential and we have extremely high expectations of all our students.  We place a great deal of emphasis on nurturing individuals to be curious, life-long learners. We also work closely with our post-16 partners to ensure that our students have the qualities necessary to succeed in post-16 settings and beyond to university and the workplace.

We make maximum use of the exceptional resources available to us on the site, including our 25 acre grounds and The Edge sports centre with its large multi-purpose sports’ hall and two flood lit all-weather pitches.
