I took Lizzie to London to see my family this year. The trip strengthened my belief that our girls need an environment where they can grow and learn self-confidence.

The environment at Woodford is preparing her well for her future.

Deputy Principal

Being part of Woodford is as much of a positive, life affirming experience for the teachers as it for the students.

I am proud to be part of such a forward-thinking school.
