Learning To Thrive

As a school, our mission is simple, direct and clear – The purposeful development of creative, compassionate, skilful, and resilient young people who can thrive in an ever-changing world.

Learning to Thrive describes our commitment to an education that equips young people with the knowledge, skills, capabilities, confidence, and purpose they require to shape their future. It is an intentional plan to develop a dynamic learning community where young people can learn to thrive at and beyond school.

Woodleigh focuses on enabling our students to find success, build compassionate relationships, and make positive contributions to the communities in which they live and work.

At Woodleigh, we educate students Heart, Head and Hands. We cultivate the learning of young people who can apply their knowledge to solve real-world challenges and make a difference in the lives of others. Our approach emphasises learning by doing, through immersive, applied experiences, and learning by caring, through social-emotional development, the promotion of positive relationships, and active engagement as responsible citizens.

In a world where change is a constant, a Woodleigh education is more relevant than ever. I invite you to visit our beautiful campuses and experience first-hand the difference that a Woodleigh education offers.


"Woodleigh questioned the status quo; it challenged conventional thinking, made courageous choices about how best to engage young minds, and pioneered the concept of holistic education. "
