Woodford house


Celebrating highest number of Scholarships

Woodford House is celebrating its highest number of NZQA scholarships this year. Ten scholarships were awarded to Year 12 and 13 students across the curriculum areas including English, Accounting, Chemistry, History, Physical Education, Music and Design.

The 2017 Head Prefect and Dux, Susannah Hansen, received three scholarships including an Outstanding, which is the highest accolade awarded by NZQA.

Year 12 student, Madeleine Fenn, received two scholarships, one in English and History, which is an exceptional result.

Since 2015, Woodford House has been successfully offering the girls a specialised Scholarship Academy aimed at supporting and strengthening our girls’ chance of New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) Scholarships.

One of the pillars to our success is a commitment to personalised learning in a stimulating environment. We recognise that one size does not fit all in education. Every girl is a unique individual with different strengths, challenges and interests.

Our highly regarded individualised learning programmes are developed in partnership with teachers, students and their caregivers to allow each student the opportunity to achieve her personal best.

Our Scholarship results are a reflection of this holistic approach where the entire Woodford House community work together to ensure the girl is always at the centre.
