Mission: At Akeley Wood, we offer nothing less than teaching and learning excellence.Above everything else, the School is concerned with the individual, and pupils leave the School not only with the best possible qualifications, but also with a set of values and close friendships that will last a lifetime. Confidence and happiness are the hallmarks of our success.
Akeley Wood School is a coeducational independent primary and secondary school, with an attached sixth form near Buckingham. The school accommodates pupils aged 12 months –18 years old albeit not on the same site – stretching efforts across three separate schools; the Junior School, Tile House Mansion and the Senior School – Akeley Wood. There are approximately 900 pupils across the three sites. Years 7 and 8 are based at Tile House Mansion, where there’s no rush to grow up too soon. We delight in seeing the youngest of our Senior School pupils playing during break and lunchtimes - a rare sight at most secondary schools.
Years 9 through to Sixth Form are located a mile up the road at Akeley Wood House, where we take a progressive and ambitious approach to teaching and learning.
Across our three glorious sites, Akeley Wood pupils enjoy a rich tapestry of academic, cultural and social opportunities. We value good manners, kindness and have high aspirations for all pupils.
Being a co-educational, through-school enables us to cater for the needs of families with children aged from 12 months to 18-years-old. This is but one factor that helps create the close-knit family atmosphere at Akeley Wood School.
