10 Things About Arnewood

Ten Things You May Not Know About The Arnewood School




  1. Over the last five years students have benefited from millions of pounds investment in building improvement.Construction students help get the multi-million pound re-fit underway
  2. The next phase of our rebuild begins shortly and will provide state of the art drama and music rooms. These will complement our new science labs and maths rooms. 
  3. In 2019 we replaced all of the school’s IT equipment with the generous support of a charitable donation.
  4. Our sports facilities are first rate with newly refurbished changing rooms, AstroTurf and neighbouring swimming pool.
  5. We have an extensive school library and employ trained librarians to kindle students’ passion for literature and independent study. 
  6. We annually host students from across Europe, many attending for an academic year on a gifted and talented programme.
  7. We see education as a seven year journey including, for those who make the entry requirement, a guaranteed place in our outstanding sixth form.
  8. As an inclusive setting we work closely with our sister school, Eaglewood School, a new alternate provision site who support children whom otherwise would struggle in mainstream.
  9. Many of our teachers hold higher degrees and doctorates. We have low rates of staff turnover and the school’s senior and middle management teams offer the consistency of long-service. 
  10. Our academic outcomes are consistently high for children whatever their starting point but we are not an academic sweat house where children are filtered out (off-rolled) to manipulate performance tables.
