A warm welcome to Woodbridge School
Woodbridge School is an Independent co-educational day and boarding school in Suffolk for ages 4-18, providing a wonderful mix of warmth and kindness coupled with focus and purpose. We are proud of our nurturing and inclusive community, a feature invariably picked up by those who visit the school. The pastoral ethos is at the school's heart, and it is palpable in the relationships between pupil and teacher, and between the pupils themselves. It is the cornerstone of the Woodbridge education. We work hand in hand with parents so that a child entering their first years at school in Reception will emerge from Sixth Form prepared and ready to face the challenges of the modern world.
It is this strong foundation that we believe allows our pupils to go forward and flourish, not just in academic life, but also in the vast range of extra-curricular activities that are on offer at the school. At Woodbridge, an equal value is placed on activity both inside and outside the classroom. Children who are secure, happy, well guided and supported by teachers will feel confident to try new activities, to believe in their innate ability that they can succeed, and thrive as a result.
The role the School plays in your child's development and learning is fundamental. Woodbridge School Pre-Prep is where your child will take their first steps into the world of School and it is of paramount importance to us that this is a positive and rewarding experience for each child and their parents alike. We aim to give our children the opportunities for learning, both academically and socially, which will form firm foundations for their development throughout their whole school life. We look to bring out the very best in each child.
Our music, art and drama are widely regarded as exceptional, our sports in the top 100 Independent Schools in the country. Drama performances take place five times a year at our own Seckford Theatre and the quality is exceptional, with performances at the Edinburgh Fringe and sell out whole school musicals are a regular feature on the drama calendar.
In the music department, pupils have performed stunning choral concerts at Snape, Ely Cathedral and Norwich cathedral, as well as a calendar of more local orchestral and choral concerts. Over 350 music lessons are given every week and we offer over 20 different groups, orchestras and ensembles for pupils of all abilities to join. Our art department has also gained a reputation for excellence and holds two departmental exhibitions every year. In sport, our cross country has a national reputation for excellence, with the most recent National Schools Cross Country held on the School site. Our traditional team sports are taught to an exceptional standard by staff who include Olympians and former National and International players.
Of course the best way to experience our school and our community is to come and visit us. Visitors are always welcome, either by personal appointment or on one of our vibrant open days. Our next open day will take place on Saturday 26 September, with Woodbridge Prep open from 10.30am to 12.30pm, and the Senior School open from 12.30pm to 4.30pm. We look forward to welcoming you to Woodbridge.
