Woodard Associated Schools (independent)
The Associated schools are independent schools that have joined Woodard because they believe in Woodard’s values and vision. They are all committed to a strong religious ethos and practice but also to the principle that each child should be treated as an individual, be given opportunities to flourish, and develop the confidence and capability to cope with the demands and responsibilities of adult life.
Associated schools are entirely responsible for their own governance, performance and finance but draw on the shared strength of the whole Woodard family. The Associated schools add an important dimension to Woodard, participating in programmes for students, teachers and governors and the sharing of best practice and information.
