Click here for the Dorset County Council Interactive Catchment area map. By entering your postcode you can check if you live within the Woodroffe School catchment area.

The Woodroffe School is a Foundation school, and therefore, all appeals are Independent; they should be directed to the Clerk of the Independent Appeal Panel (IAP) and not Dorset Local Authority. The IAP have recently recruited a new Clerk, therefore all relevant Admission publications have been removed whilst they are updated with the new contact details.

If you would like to discuss Admissions further or for an updated Appeal Form, please contact Nicola Payne, Development Office, on 01297 442232 or via email:
