The Woodard Corporation is a significant charity founded on the vision of Canon Nathaniel Woodard, providing high quality education in an actively Christian school environment for all. Today, Woodard educates over 30,000 pupils across academy, independent and state-maintained schools. Our aim is to be the educational provider of choice and a valued voice in UK education. The Woodard Corporation sponsors the Woodard Academies Trust.
The Woodard Corporation aims to bring out the very best in everyone. A Woodard education champions the cause of child-centred holistic learning, paying particular attention to the development of the whole person: spiritually, morally, culturally,academically, aesthetically, and physically. This means that education begins at the point of the child’s needs and places a high value on developing self-respect and self-esteem. Every child is valued for who they are and encouraged to give their very best.
The Woodard Corporation believe that every young person has the right to develop their full potential. Many of the young people successfully compete on the national stage in the field of academia, sports, the arts, and culture.
The Woodard family contains some of the highest achieving schools in both the public and private sectors, including a number of national Teaching Schools.
A Woodard education values both the spiritual and moral development of each person giving strength, confidence, and respect for others. Young people from all faiths and traditions, or none at all, flourish in the rich, diverse culture of our schools enabling them to lead full and creative adult lives.
The Woodard family of schools provides many inter-school opportunities, the sharing of best practice and a strength and expertise within education. Our pioneering heritage places much emphasis on leadership and management. From attractive, welcoming environments to modern facilities, Woodard schools offer a rich variety of extracurricular activities, professional teaching, and effective pastoral care.
Woodard schools offer a twenty-first century education rooted in the vision of the founder. A vision which challenges those that believe education is simply a matter of teaching and learning certain facts.
The education of the whole person, to foster the unique potential of each individual, is the Woodard way.
