About Us

Bishop Wood School is a voluntary aided coeducational school for children aged 7 to 11 years.  The maximum capacity of the school is 240 pupils spread over four year groups with two classes per year.

The school, located in the centre of Tring, is on a large site with open playing fields surrounded by hedging and trees.  It has two playgrounds, an outdoor trim trail, a small woodland play area, gardening area and outdoor classroom.  The single-storey buildings are largely on one level and accessible for wheelchair users.  There is a large assembly hall, a library and separate music room.  The bright dining hall, lit by windows in the pyramidal roof, is a cheerful space at the heart of the school.

Bishop Wood is a secure site with monitored entry systems and children are supervised at all times from 8.35am.   Adjacent to the reception area at the front of the school there are disabled facilities and a room for private meetings with staff.  There is a disabled parking space close to the main entrance and limited parking spaces reserved for staff and visitors on school business.
