Our teachers and students share information, ideas, assignments and inspiration through a learning management system called Schoology. Woodford was one of the first schools in New Zealand to introduce this system and it is invaluable in our innovative approach to teaching.
We use models such as the ‘flipped classroom’ and project-based learning to ensure all our girls are engaged and well equipped for the individual learning journey.
All our staff have personal learning goals and pathways. We work together to ensure they receive opportunities to grow their own knowledge and experiences. In this way our teachers are as much life-long learners as our students.
Our approach to pastoral care ensures every individual student has an adult who acts as their key carer. This home-room approach brings together small groups of 12 students with their tutor multiple times a week.
In this way we can guarantee all our girls are nurtured and encouraged to succeed in their individual learning journey. This approach extends outside the classroom to prep and study.
At Woodford the girls do really nice activities, they go on trips in the weekends and they get really well looked after so all the girls have lots of fun.
At Woodford House everyone is friendly and we're all like a family. We never feel like strangers here. It is also very quiet and peaceful. I really love my teachers and I have made good friends.
I very much enjoy the discussions we have in class. They have really helped me with my English and they are fun. I enjoy New Zealand life very much and have made lots of good friends here. I have learned so much from the people here at Woodford.
