Woodford House is one of the country’s leading schools for girls and welcomes New Zealand international students. Since 1894, we have provided an outstanding education and boarding school experience for young women across the globe.
We recognise and celebrate cultural diversity and each year introduce international students from across the world to our Woodford House family. We have welcomed students from Germany, French Polynesia, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, South Korea, and Thailand.
Our International Department makes sure girls feel welcome and happy from the moment they arrive at Woodford House. We have a comprehensive orientation programme and strong ongoing pastoral care that helps girls integrate smoothly into their new school. Girls are continually encouraged to make the most of their experience in New Zealand, academically and culturally.
Woodford House is located in the quaint township of Havelock North, which is part of the wider Hawke’s Bay region. The area is known for beautiful landscapes, Art Deco history, beaches and a relaxed lifestyle. Hawke’s Bay is an easy one-hour flight from Auckland or a 40-minute flight from Wellington.
