Choosing the right school for your daughter is not easy. A good school means different things to different people. For some it is the academic outcomes of a school that define its excellence. For others it is the breadth of the school’s curricular and co-curricular activities. Many people are interested in the facilities a school has to offer, while for others it is the software that matters – the ethos and values of the school.
At Walford Anglican School for Girls everyone is justly proud of the academic results
achieved by the students year after year. However, Walford is much more than just an academically excellent school.
