South Woodham Ferrers Schools & Education

Woodville Primary School is an Ofsted “outstanding” school and as a result very popular with parents. However, as this school is often oversubscribed, there are other options with all but one school achieving a “good” rating from Ofsted.
Many of the local state primaries filter into the William de Ferrers School. An academy school, it has around 1,216 pupils aged between 11 and 18. It has been awarded specialist sports, maths, and computing college status.
