Walford Anglican School for Girls is one of Australia’s leading schools. It is a dynamic and progressive Day and Boarding School where people are important and traditions and heritage are valued.
A purpose-built contemporary Boarding House accommodates girls from Year 6-12. The facilities include rooms with their own en-suite, kitchenette and recreation areas, café with indoor and alfresco eating, and laptops for all boarding students – this is a living and learning environment like no other.
Walford has a long tradition of academic excellence and success in sporting and cultural activities. The School provides small classes in which academic achievement, confidence and personal development are nurtured. Walford’s fine teaching, excellent course and careers counselling and the students’ strong work ethic result in outstanding tertiary entrance scores each year – 98% of girls continue on to university.
Walford is different from other girls’ schools in Adelaide because it offers exceptional opportunities and choice for girls to undertake the International Baccalaureate Program. A wide range of co-curricular activities helps provide a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle.
