Woodlands Community School is a mixed comprehensive school on "Blenheim Drive" in Allestree, Derby in the East Midlands of England.

The school is for pupils aged 11—18. About 220 people enrol at this school in any one academic year, with about 1180 on the books. The school has had specialist status as a Technology College since September 2004.Parker, Michelle.

History

The school was opened as Woodlands Secondary Modern School. It became a comprehensive in 1975.

Academic performance

The school gets above average results at GCSE, being the fourth best in Derby LEA. At A level, it is reasonable and again the fourth best in Derby, but under the England average. The Ecclesbourne School in Duffield also takes prospective A level candidates from Allestree, and although it is similar to a grammar school, Woodlands still manages to achieve better results and generally holds a better reputation in the Derby area.

Alumni

* Bob Laxton - local MP for Derby North.
* Nigel Clough - Footballer
