Located on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, Woodleigh School is an independent, coeducational school comprising two Junior Campuses (ECC-Year 6) in Frankston South and Moorooduc and a Senior Campus in Langwarrin South.

Woodleigh is a community that strongly values a holistic education.  It is a place where students are known and valued, where boys and girls grow into independent, creative, resilient individuals together.

Woodleigh is a school of dynamic, academically rigorous learning, which reflects and responds to the world we live in today.  Whilst very definitely an academic school, with fine VCE results equipping the large majority of students for tertiary study, it also provides a number of other very important dimensions that prepare all students for the challenges of life in the twenty first century.

Woodleigh affirms openness, independence, self motivation and initiative, and never limits students to predetermined outcomes.  Woodleigh is entirely coeducational, committed to the belief that this is the only suitable setting to educate both boys and girls for adult life.
