The school aims to educate and develop its students in the best traditions of Christianity.

Also according to statistics, Woodhouse Grove School has some of the best GCSE exam scores (score 93.5%) and A-level (100%).

Another feature of the Woodhouse Grove school is that this institution is directly connected with the literary family Bronte: it was here that Patrick met his future wife Maria, who became the mother of the famous writers Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte.
