Principal's Welcome

A shining light amongst Hawke's Bay high schools

Welcome to Woodford House, a shining light amongst Hawke’s Bay High Schools.

Warm greetings to you and your family. We have been welcoming new girls, families and friends to our beautiful school for 130 years.

Woodford House is a school where every student is known by her name. As we are a boarding school, the wellbeing of our girls goes beyond 8am to 3pm. Our girls are deeply cared for, listened to, encouraged and nurtured in an inclusive and positive environment.

We have a solid foundation to achieve personal success, whether it be academic, sporting, cultural or spiritual.

Alongside our rich history and traditional values, we are focused on the future. Woodford House girls are building the skills, experiences, competencies, attitude and resilience required to move into life roles that will see them influence, participate, inspire and grow to be exceptional women.

At Woodford House your daughter will be nurtured and guided so her light will shine. What that light is, is different for every girl. We believe that it’s our role to let each girl’s personality and potential be revealed. With the support of our teaching staff, other students and our wonderful community, we look forward to partnering with you on our daughter’s journey.
