I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Woodley School and College and I am pleased to welcome you to our website. The website will provide you with a brief insight of the school.
Woodley School and College is a Kirklees Local Authority aspirational, inclusive and outward looking special school in Huddersfield for children aged 5-19 with complex autism. There are currently 133 pupils on roll.
The school is rated as 'Good' by Ofsted (2017), holds Advanced Autism Accreditation and is the Autism Education Trust licensed training provider for Kirklees schools and Post 16. This recognises the highest standards of autism expertise and practice and underpins the school’s important role as a schools training hub.
Proposal to expand the number of special school places at Woodley School and College
20th November 2023
The proposal to increase the number of special school places at Woodley School and College has now reached the next stage.
Woodley caters for children and young people with additional needs and welcomes pupils from across the whole of Kirklees.
A consultation has already taken place about increasing the number of places gradually, ahead of and leading up to the school moving into a new and bigger building. The consultation showed a high level of support for the proposal.
The next stage is publication of legal notices, which is another chance for people to have their say. For more details about the proposal to increase places, please visit the School Organisation web page.
Work is ongoing to provide superb new facilities for Woodley, which will move to a new site in Almondbury to better meet the needs of pupils. This involves a multi-million pound investment and is part of our work to transform support for children, young people and families with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Woodley Chickens - 21/04/2023
Throughout March our students have been able to participate in an amazing experience hatching and raising chicks. All classes were given the opportunity to see the chicks and help to care for them.
The school have decided to keep some of the chickens and we are delighted to announce that they have now been moved into their new enclosure. All the children were allowed to pitch suggestions for naming the chickens and the best of these were chosen by the school council. The chickens have coloured tags on their legs to help identify them. You can view the list of names in the attachment below:
Children will continue to have the opportunity to care for the chickens during the week.
