Secondary Overview

Welkam to the Secondary School!

At Woodford we are proud of the caring and stimulating learning environment we provide for our Year 6 - 10 students.

Learning in the Middle School (Years 6 - 8) builds on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and supports learning towards the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Subjects in the Middle School have been tailored to provide an international standard of education while at the same time taking advantage of our unique Pacific regional context.

Students in Year 9 - 10 follow a two-year programme leading to the Cambridge International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE). IGCSE is the world most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds and is recognised by education authorities in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA and regionally. At WIS we provide a broad and balanced subject offering to our students allowing for a variety of future educational pathways internationally, regionally and locally. More information about Cambridge IGCSE can be found at

Each term Assessment Schedules are published on the website so that students can organise their study time and parents can support their child in their learning.

A well-developed and holistic Pastoral programme supports academics in the Secondary School. Students meet with their homeroom teacher twice a day and undertake personal development lessons once a week. All students in Years 6 - 9 attend a Camp to support the aims of the pastoral programme.

In week 1 of each term students have the opportunity to sign up for a wide range of After School Activities. These take place Monday - Friday from 3.30 - 4.15pm in weeks 2 - 9.

The school day commences at 8.30 am until 3.20pm (4pm on Wednesdays for students in Years 8 - 10). The day is divided into 8 x 40 minute lessons and break times are at 10.00 - 10.20am and 1.00 - 1.50pm.
