About Us

In January 2002 Woodlands International College opened its doors to a handful of children with an undertaking to raise the bar in private education.

Building on each new success, and promise we met, we have forged a proud and distinctive legacy, setting the benchmark for excellence in all academic disciplines through an innovative, challenging and closely considered curriculum, tempered with a comprehensive sports timetable, and the opportunity to express creativity in enriching arts and culture activities.

Importantly, children look forward to coming here – it’s a place where lifelong friendships are formed, and personal, unique value systems encouraged. At Woodlands our talented young ambassadors leave admirably equipped to acquit themselves honourably in whichever field of endeavour they choose to pursue.
