We welcome Woodhouse Grove School to AEGIS! 

Woodhouse Grove School welcomes applications from International students.  Despite being located less than five miles from the centre of Leeds and Bradford and only five minutes from Leeds/Bradford airport, neither is visible - or audible. Screened by woods, the school's safe 70 acre campus sits in the broad Aire Valley in Yorkshire and enjoys a lovely rural setting which belies its convenient urban situation.

• Leeds/Bradford airport is within 3 miles
• Manchester Airport within a 1 hour drive
• Apperley Bridge has its own railway station just across the road from school.

As a community, Woodhouse Grove benefits enormously from the diversity of cultures and nationalities of students who come to the school both as day pupils and who live in our boarding community. Whilst the number of international students is never any larger than 5% of the whole school community, the fact that we have students living and working here from all around the world broadens everyone’s horizons and gives us all an insight into different cultures and attitudes.
