Why Woodcroft?

Woodcroft students are able to access a world-quality education.

They are supported in a very professional and collegial environment; the staff care about them and beyond that they have wonderful opportunities in many local, sporting and overseas programs. The world is at their doorstep.

People sometimes ask the question: Why Woodcroft? A better question is: Why not? The curriculum is internationally-recognised; the focus is student-centred; the pastoral care is outstanding; the extra-curricular program is broad; and a sense of community is ever-present. The best way to experience Woodcroft is to visit. Why not explore the website or, better still, book a College Tour? We can’t wait to welcome you to our community.

From our College Captains

‘Be Brave, Be Brilliant’.

A new year has approached, and we are extremely grateful to be where we are due to recent events. Last year we were hit with bushfires and a pandemic that has impacted the whole world, however, we have persevered and now this is our year to succeed. Our graduating class of 2021 follow this mantra to get themselves through days, weeks, terms, and eventually, their senior year. As College Captains, we aim to spread this idea of being brave to be brilliant across the College.

Although we have sub schools across the campus, we are connected and united in everything we do. We are Woodcroft College, and we are brilliant. As College Captains, we take pride in our College community and we do our best every day to show our student body that they can be brilliant too. We embrace each interest and every passion by sharing ours with them and being present and open with our peers.

We have chosen to identify ‘Unity’ as this year’s subject, and we aim to involve the whole school – both the staff and student body - in events and ideas we implement. We look forward to working with the Woodcroft College community to help our school thrive and set us onto an even better path than it already is. We are honoured to be representing Woodcroft College this year.

Pastoral Care of our Students is a Priority

Our Pastoral Care system ensures that all students are supported and valued as an individual. The fostering of high quality relationships among students, parents and staff is a responsibility shared by everyone.

"At Woodcroft we are committed to providing the best possible care for our students. Teachers are supported by our Student Services Team, consisting of a Director of Student Services and two qualified counsellors, and the College Chaplain."

 
 

Hear from Woodcroft Parents

Parents choose Woodcroft College because of the values of the College and the exceptionally high educational standards the College holds. As an IB World School, parents also love the fact that there are many different pathway options available to their children.

Outdoor Education Programs

The primary goal of the Woodcroft Outdoor Education Program is to develop the following three qualities in our students:

Perseverance: trying hard, not giving up too soon and becoming more resilient.
Selflessness: regularly acting for the benefit of others rather than self.
Community Spirit: feeling a responsibility for the welfare of society.

The activities students take part in are not viewed as ends in themselves: that is, we do not think it is vital that all our students learn how to sleep in a tent, rock climb or solve initiative problems. Rather, we see these experiences as effective ways to teach valuable lessons about life.

The Outdoor Education Program supports students to experience success at their own pace and ability level, while facing mental and physical challenges.
