Woodfield Post 16-19

Situated on the grounds of Woodfield School in Merstham, Woodfield Post 16-19 is a separate setting designed for Year 12 and 13 students with an EHCP, who are not quite ready to attend college or begin work.

Our aim is for every student to:

  • Be fully immersed in an individual, real life based programme that will further develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes.
  • Become positive and active members of society.
  • Develop independence and self-confidence in order to undertake the range of opportunities that life has to offer.
  • Lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Woodfield Post 16 is an intimate setting with a maximum of 20 students who enjoy the calm, relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Students wear their own clothes rather than a school uniform while staff and students all call each other by their first names. At break and lunch times, students have full access to the fantastic facilities available and can be found cooking their own lunch, listening to music, making puzzles, creating art on ipads, playing sport or just relaxing in the garden having a chat with their friends.

The following table gives you a clear idea of what to expect at Woodfield Post 16.
