Wolfreton School and Language College is a large state secondary school in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

It is situated five miles to the west of Kingston upon Hull city centre. It is split into two sites, one in Willerby and one in Kirk Ella. The Lower School at Willerby consists of Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils, while the Upper School at Kirk Ella consists of Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 (years 12 and 13 are Sixth Form students). In 2007, 56% of pupils gained 5 A-C GCSEs including English and Maths, similar to Cottingham High School.

East Riding Consortium

Wolfreton is a part of the East Riding Sixth Form Consortium along with Hessle High School, South Hunsley School and Cottingham High School, which has, for over 17 years, provided students with a wider range of subjects to choose from in their A Level studies.

Rushanje School

In recent years Wolfreton has built strong relations with Rushanje School in Mbarara, Uganda, with staff travelling over to help develop the school. A new Science and Humanities block built at Wolfreton's Upper School site was named 'Rushanje House' in honour of the relationship. As a reciprocal gesture, a new accommodation block at Rushanje School, funded partly with money raised at Wolfreton, was named 'Wolfreton House'. [http://www.wolfreton.co.uk/rushanje/page66.html]

Wolfreton School Senate

Wolfreton is keen to encourage pupil democracy, with its most impressive democratic institution being the School Senate, formed by the school's head of PSHCE and A Level Politics teacher Ian Richardson. The Senate is a partially-elected body (around 80% - most Sixth Formers are appointed), comprising representatives from all year groups on a proportional basis. It is sometimes consulted by the school's Head Teacher and by its heads of faculties, and regularly plays a major role in discussing and deciding on important issues, like charity events and school policies.
