Woodford provided a great environment for me to develop as an athlete and student. They supported me with nutritional talks, athlete life advice and various trainings to assist my progress in rowing, while also keeping me up to date with study during lengthy stays away.

I came to Woodford as a weekly boarder in Year 8 and made friends that still are (and will be for decades to come) my closest friends.

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. The support we receive, the access to global ideas and the development in our own teaching practice is coupled by a school-wide dedication to life-long learning. I am proud to be part of such a forward-thinking school.
