About

A girls' high school founded on a clear vision

Mabel Annie Hodge had a strong vision – to create a girls’ high school where the head, heart and hands are engaged to best prepare young women for the brightest possible future. Woodford House was founded on this basis to provide a first-class education that truly reveals the unique potential of each girl. More than 127 years later, this tradition proudly continues.
