ABOUT WOODRIDGE

A word from the headmaster

“We have an exceptional school here at Woodridge and from Grade 000 right through to Grade 12 you will find an impeccable foundation of care, of tolerance, of acceptance. At Woodridge we recognize that you love your child. We will care deeply about your son and your daughter and we will partner with you to encourage and build the right-thinking young men and women that our country needs for tomorrow. As you browse our website you will find these threads connecting all aspects of our school.”


Our School




Since


Pre-Primary

Within this beautiful environment, our children are free to experience learning through play and discovery. Teachers make full use of their indoor, as well as outdoor, natural classroom, guiding the children in their development of fine and gross motor skills, early literacy and numeracy.

Preparatory

At Woodridge we strive to help each and every pupil achieve their potential and in doing so, produce caring, confident individuals who will be able to make a positive contribution to society. School must be a rewarding and fun experience.  At Woodridge we want our children to be open-minded, free and creative thinkers.

College

The College incorporates Grades 8 – 12, with the culmination for the pupils being the writing of the National Senior Certificate examination. Academic pursuits remain the primary focus of College activities. We write the Independent Examinations Board (“IEB”) matric examinations. Pupils are in the hands of skilled professionals.
