“It is my pleasure to welcome you to Woolmer Hill. It is my belief that Woolmer Hill School provides a first rate education for young people founded upon our strong and supportive school community. It is a fabulous place to grow and learn.”
Clare Talbot (Headteacher)
Woolmer Hill is a successful mixed, comprehensive academy of approximately 550 pupils aged from 11 to 16 years. Situated on a beautiful site on the outskirts of Haslemere, the school attracts pupils from a wide area including Thursley, Grayshott, Beacon Hill, Chiddingfold, Grayswood, Hindhead, 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. We place a great deal of emphasis on developing independent, life-long learners and 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.
It is important to us that the views and contributions of our pupils are valued and that they are involved in decisions that affect their school. We have an active School Council and student leadership group who meet regularly to discuss whole-school matters or to lead their own projects.
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. We offer a wide range of subjects taught by specialist teachers with specialist resources whilst offering smaller than average class sizes.
