Woodside Park International School

Woodside Park International School in North London is a co-educational independent international school for students aged 2 to 18 years. The Senior Department in Friern Barnet prepares students for GCSE examinations and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in the new specialist sixth form IB Centre. Students who embark on the International Baccalaureate go to The Hague in January to attend the Model United Nations Conference. Great emphasis is placed on modern technology, and students use the most up-to-date facilities with audio-visual links with its sister school in New York and access to the Internet. Students wishing to enrol for the International Baccalaureate Diploma can enrol on a foundation year if they need extra support with their English. For students aged 16+ coming from abroad, the school can arrange homestay accommodation with carefully selected local families.

The Junior Department (ages 7-11), in nearby North Finchley has all its teaching rooms in a purpose-built facility. The Junior Department (ages 4-7), and Kindergarten (ages 2 to 4), are housed together close to Woodside Park underground station.

During term time trips to Normandy are organized for all students in Years 6, 7 and 8. Skiing trips are also organised during the Easter holidays.

The principal aim of the school is to encourage each student to develop both as an individual and as a responsible member of the community. Students are expected to give their best at all times both academically and in the great variety of other activities available to them.

Art, drama and music are also taught, and productions are staged in the newly equipped hall. There is a school orchestra and choir and many students learn to play an instrument. There is also a wide range of extra-curricular activities and a homework club.
