Woodbrook Vale is a comprehensive school. Students will be admitted at age 11 without reference to ability or aptitude. Applications should be made using the Leicestershire County Council website for ‘normal’ entry time in August / September. 

We would encourage any parent to arrange a visit to the school prior to applying for a place on the County Council website.

You should have received a letter or e-mail recently informing you of which secondary school your child has been allocated a place at.  If that school is Woodbrook Vale School, congratulations, we look forward to welcoming your child after the summer.

If it wasn’t Woodbrook Vale School, but you wanted it to be, you have the right of appeal.  Follow the instructions given in your letter/e-mail, or use the link below for further details.
