Akeley Wood School is an independent co-educational day school for pupils from the age of one to eighteen, nursery through to Sixth Form. We are a school which strives for the highest academic achievement for our pupils and the results achieved in public examinations demonstrate this. Our school has a wonderful family feel, where our pupils are challenged and encouraged to gain the most from their education, with unrivalled support in order to achieve excellence. The school offers a happy caring environment in which pupils can excel not just in academic subjects, but in sport, creative and performing arts, or wherever their individual strengths lie. The school fosters agile minds and a self confidence that enables our school leavers and graduates to feel completely at ease in their own skin.
