Woodlands Secondary School is a special requirements secondary that caters for pupils aged between 11 and 19, covering both KS3 and KS4. Located in Luton, England, the school works to provide educations for a range of children with learning difficulties. The current headteacher is Mrs Sheila Read.


The school caters for a wide range of complex and difficult learning disabilities which include visual and hearing impairment and autism across the whole spectrum. The school provides a learning environment that can help to ease the problems of the pupils that attend in education and enables the school to provide both a National Curriculum education and an education that best suits the pupil.

The school has a wide range of sophisticated resources to help stimulate the pupils including multi-sensory equipment and rooms and a fully functional therapy pool.


The School believes that every pupil needs to be rigorously stimulated both intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally and academically to ensure that they reach their full potential and make continuous progress. The school also works with the parents and guardians to support them with their child's education and helps them to make decisions on how their child can progress with their education.


Woodland's last inspection said that the school was good with excellent features and that pupils enjoyed learning and also that most of them had attained some form of national accreditation when they left. The school could improve by raising standards of school targets and improving the assessment of pupils attainment [1]
