  • Parkour Complete!

    Following us reaching our fundraising target of £15,000, the installation of the pupils new Parkour Circuit it now complete.

    An OFFICIAL OPENING with East Midlands Parkour Coaching, will take place on Friday 22nd March! Look out for more details coming soon...

    Parkour is an attractive discipline because there is no right or wrong way to carry out a move. Pupils will be free to use their imagination and be as creative as they wish about the way in which they challenge themselves. It is an extremely physical sport and attractive to young people, engaging them in exercise in a non-traditional way. 

    This new Free Running space is now being used by our pupils. 



  • Woodlands Ebay Shop now open!

    Woodlands Academy photography pupils have been busy all year learning the craft of photography, and just look at the results!

    We have some fantastically talented pupils here at school and we are now selling prints on Ebay in order to sustain the Photography Course for current, and future pupils at the school. 


  • Forge and Kiln proving huge success!

    So, this term has seen quite a lot of restructuring and revaluation of the previously made plans of mice and men!

    Having sited the retort charcoal kiln (modified by our good selves) on charcoal island, and completing some successful burns, it was decided that a relocation, along with the forge, to just outside the DT area, would make it more accessible to students as it takes several hours of care to achieve retort.


  • Pupil's Burning Bike Finally Gets Lit!

    We reported earlier in the year that Woodlands Academy pupils were asked by Coastal Events CIC to design and build a 12ft high wooden bike for Lincolnshire Bike Week.

    Following the cancellation of the event in July, the pupil’s giant creation was finally set a light on Sunday night at a spectacular firework extravaganza!
