Reshaping the future

Welcome to
The Woodway Federation

Throughout The Woodway Federation, we believe that every student should have the education, opportunities and experiences to prepare them for a happy, fulfilled, meaningful life. They should be confident, broad-minded and have a range of skills to allow them to succeed in society. We need to work with them, and others to enable them to overcome barriers and achieve their full potential.

We strive to work with our families to offer them the support that they need in various aspects of their lives. Students are never judged on previous experiences and our mantra of “every day is a new day” informs our thinking at all times. We pride ourselves on our welcoming and nurturing school environments that respect and celebrate diversity.

Please explore our website and prospectus to see what we can offer. Alternatively please contact the school office for more information. If you require paper copies of any of the documents on this website then please contact the school office who can arrange this free of charge.
