Wolfreton School is a large state secondary school in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

It is situated 5 miles (8 km) to the west of Kingston upon Hull city centre. It is on Well Lane, Willerby.(53°44′52″N 0°26′44″W / 53.747730°N 0.445480°W / 53.747730; -0.445480 (Wolfreton School, Kirk Ella site)).In 2012, 88% of pupils gained 5 A-C GCSEs, similar to Cottingham High School. During Ofsted's school inspection on 23 October 2013, Wolfreton School received "Good" (Grade 2) ratings in all inspect sections, which has improved from the "Requires Improvement" rating in the previous inspection.[1]

East Riding Consortium[edit]

Wolfreton has for over 17 years been a part of the East Riding Sixth Form Consortium along with Hessle High School and Cottingham High School, providing A Level studies. South Hunsley School was also part of the Consortium until their withdrawal in 2008.

Rushanje School[edit]

In recent years Wolfreton has built strong relations with Rushanje School in Mbarara, Uganda, with staff travelling over to help develop the school, and forming The Wolfreton Rushanje Community Partnership.[2] A new Science and Humanities block built at Wolfreton's Upper School site was named 'Rushanje House' in honour of the relationship. As a reciprocal gesture, a new accommodation block at Rushanje School, funded partly with money raised at Wolfreton, was named 'Wolfreton House'.[citation needed]

New School[edit]

The school was split over two sites, the Lower School in Willerby and the Upper School in Kirk Ella. In 2014, it was announced that Wolfreton was going to demolish both sites and build a new multi million pound site on the playing field of the Lower School. The new school opened in September 2016. Both sites closed, the Lower School has been demolished, and the Upper School will be demolished in October 2017.

Wolfreton School Senate[edit]

Wolfreton School Senate is a school democratic institution, a partially elected body (around 80% - most Sixth Formers are appointed), comprising representatives from all year groups on a proportional basis. It is sometimes consulted by the school's Head Teacher and by its heads of faculties, and regularly plays a role in discussing and deciding on important issues, such as charity events and school policies.
