Welcome to Woodford Primary School

Woodford Primary School is located on the upper banks of the Merri River nine kilometres north of the rural city of Warrnambool. The picturesque rural setting incorporates a variety of learning spaces with the 1850's original building complimenting several new buildings. The school is the community hub in Woodford, an area with a range of subdivision developments and lifetsyle blocks. Our students live in the immediate Woodford/Bushfield area, as well as coming from areas such as Mailor's Flat, Grasmere, Wangoom, Purnim, Dennington and Warrnambool. 33% of students live in the immediate neighbourhood, 33% live in the surrounding rural communities and 33% travel from Warrnambool. Travelling out to Woodford from Warrnambool is quick and easy, much quicker than trying to drive across Warrnambool itself.

Our school does not have a zoning system that excludes enrolments. If you are interested in enrolling, please contact us to arrange a time that suits you for a tour of the school. We accept enrolments in all year levels at any time during the year.  Prospective parents should be aware that from year to year there may be changes in the numbers of enrolments we can take due to the capacity limits of our school.  Order of preference is;

1. Students who reside in our neighbourhood boundary for Woodford Primary School.

2. Siblings of current Woodford students.

3. Student's home address distance from Woodford Primary School.


We are currently taking enrolments for 2019 Prep classes. Due to limitations on class sizes we encourage families to complete our pre-enrolment form and return to the office.

We are able to provide our students an expansive learning experience during their schooling with us.
