Message from Woodlands School- Year 6 & Aptitude Testing

Good Afternoon,


I am writing in regards to Woodlands School's upcoming aptitude testing day. Unfortunately, due to the current national situation we are unable to hold our usual open evening.  This generally provides an opportunity to really show off the sporting provision that we have at this school.  As a result, I don't want students to miss out on the sporting route, through our aptitude testing, as a way into the school.  We are able to offer 30 places a year to those students who live outside catchment area and do not currently have a sibling within the school.


I would be extremely grateful if you were able to forward this information and the attached flyer to all year 6 parents at your school.  We are passionate about providing sporting opportunity at our school and provide a sporting programme unrivalled in the area.  The school has just been ranked the 4th best sporting state school in the country, which is something we are extremely proud of, I would like to continue to offer these opportunities for those who don't currently have the traditional route into the school.  


Our aptitude testing will take place beginning on Saturday 3rd October 2020, and will run across the week to allow us to keep each primary school bubble separate.  Parents need to download an application form from our website and return to the school in order for their child to register for the testing day.
