Woodcote High School is a secondary school with academy status located in the Coulsdon area of the London Borough of Croydon, England.

Woodcote is a coeducational school, of around 1200 students. The school gained Specialist Sports College and Mathematics and Computing College status.


In an Ofsted inspection in 2013 the school was given an overall grade 3 (requires improvement) with individual grades being awarded as grade 3 except for "behaviour and safety of pupils" which was awarded grade 2.[1] In a previous inspection in 2008 all of the results were grade 2 (good).[2]

Track Coulsdon[edit]

In cooperation with South London Harriers an 8-lane all-weather running track has been built at the school. It includes a full size football pitch.[3]

South London Harriers have a 100 year agreement with Woodcote High School which began in 2012 to use and jointly manage the Track Coulsdon facility. The area of land on which the track is built is protected from development also for 100 years until 2113 by an agreement with the QEII Fields in Trust.
