About our School Website
According to 'The Times Educational Supplement', we have "the most visited school website in the Country. Riding high in the UK's most popular education websites chart is one lone school. ... According to the website popularity monitor, Hitwise UK, for the week ending February 3 2007 it was the third most popular site for an education institution, behind the University of Aberdeen and the Open University, but ahead of learndirect."
We monitor how our website is used by visitors each month, to help make continuous improvements to our website.
The first table below is updated monthly and shows high-level website activity across the website.

Frequently asked Questions
How did you make your website?
Woodlands Web was started as a hobby by Mandy Barrow, who knew little about computers and designing a website. Over the years her knowledge of web designing has grown alongside our ever growing website still run by Mandy.0
The Woodlands Junior website reflects Mandy's interests. She is especially keen on keeping British culture and history alive. This is seen through the huge section on British life and culture crammed full of photographs (another hobby of Mandy's).
For information on how Mandy started the site and on how to create your own website please visit our Internet Lessons.
Who runs your website?
The website is run by Mandy Barrow, a former teacher at the school. The website is not funded by the school, the majority of the site has been created in Mandy's own time.
Mandy left in 2004 to train teachers in ICT for Kent LA, but continues to regularly update and add more pages to our ever growing website.
Without Mandy, we would not have such a successful site as we have today. We are very grateful for the many hours of work she puts into the site, especially as she does so with no cost to the school.
Our school also plays a small part in helping to run the site. Alison, a teaching assistant at Woodlands, updates the school diary and school office pages.
How often is the website updated?
Mandy is always updating and adding something new to the website. The main sections which are updated regularly are the Homework Help, Interactive Zones and the British Culture sections.
The biggest and most recent addition to the website is a virtual trip with Winnie the Pooh down the River Thames. It contains over 500 photographs on 100 pages and took four months to complete.
How should I include your websites in my bibliography?

Can I advertise or sponsor Woodlands Web?
Yes! Woodlands Web is the perfect place to advertise your product to the Educational world.
We want to share our success. We have a hugely popular website which has a high ranking in Google.
We are looking for companies to sponsor pages, which will give us a regular income to improve the ICT in our school but at the same time will not influence our students in a bad way.
