Campus

Woodstock is located 1 kilometer outside of Mussoorie on the south side of a mountain with a 350 meter (1,000 feet) rise from the lowest to the highest points on campus. The entire 250-acre campus lies within a protected forest that supports a mixed pine, rhododendron and Himalayan oak environment, a very peaceful contrast to the bustle of the local bazaar.

The academic buildings and offices lie at the heart of the campus. The main residences lie below the school on a wooded ridge, ten minutes' walk from the centre. Staff homes and other residences are nestled amongst the trees across the hillside with trails connecting them. Two motor roads run through the campus, leading from Mussoorie into the hills.

The Senior School building provides classrooms for Grades 9 through 12, science laboratories, the Vera Marley Library, and Parker Hall auditorium, which offers up-to-date lighting, sound and stage equipment.. Assemblies, plays, dances - even weddings of staff or alumni - are held in Parker Hall. Next to the Senior School, the Media Centre houses several classrooms, two computer labs, including one devoted to journalism, an auditorium and a spacious art studio. Nearby is the impressive new Win Mumby Gym, with an international-standard basketball court, squash and badminton courts, a climbing wall, fitness centre and other facilities. The gym is also the venue for large community events, including graduation.

Below the Senior School are the original school buildings, parts of which are over 150 years old. The buildings are centered around a quadrangle, which lends its name to the Quad School, comprising Grades K-6 . The Quad also houses the music block with studios, practice cells, ensemble rooms, an Indian music studio and music library. Also located here are the ESL suite, the Grades KG-6 library and computer lab, an auditorium and an arts studio. The dining room and main kitchen, health centre, administrative and business offices complete the picture.

Six residence buildings extend along the wooded ridge below the academic buildings or on the hillside above. Each one has recreational and sports facilities, including outdoor basketball courts. The school's swimming pool and tennis courts are part of the boys' hostel complex. Hanson Field, the main sports and athletic field, is a five to ten minute walk down from the lower residences.
