Woking - A Blog Devoted to Our Town

“Why would a school create a blog about the local town?” we hear you ask. Well, we know that many people look to move to Woking from London or other parts of the country because of its excellent transport links, but we also know that Woking doesn’t exactly have the best rep when comes to English suburban idylls (if you haven’t been, we don’t often make it onto Surrey’s tea towel selection). Most of the staff at Greenfield are Woking born and bred and we think this makes us the ideal people to put forward Woking’s better qualities. We hope you enjoy.
