Woodland Grange opened in August 1991 and is situated on
the Grange Farm housing development just off the A6 in Oadby. The
school, which was built for 240 children in the 4 - 10 age-range now
accommodates over 360 and this figure may rise further due to further
building on the estate and the popularity of the school.
The school is set in pleasant and spacious grounds. Following a new
building programme, we now have the structures and facilities to meet
the needs of the number of children on roll.
The main building, comprises seven class areas, a computer
suite, reprographics/ancillaries room, food technology facilities and the administration wing. The ‘new’
building which opened in 2001 comprises three classrooms of semi-open
plan design, a library and a music studio.
Our hall, which opened in 2003 is in a free standing complex at the
back of the school which also accommodates the kitchen, P.E. store and
Additionally we have three mobile classroom buildings which includes a French room and pre/after care.
An exciting new development opened in September 2015 and saw the creation of Woodland Grange Pre-School that takes pupils in the September following their third birthday. This provision is open from 7.45am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, 50 weeks a year.
