“I looked to move to Woodkirk for the Sixth Form because of the outstanding A-Level results. When I came to the Open Evening, all of the students and teachers were friendly and very welcoming, I instantly felt comfortable about moving.

As soon as I had started, I knew I had made the right decision, everyone was so enthusiastic and I cannot wait to achieve great things here.”
