 Learning life skills at school
  The best of tradition and innovation
Set in the beautiful town of Woodbridge in Suffolk, Woodbridge School, comprising our Pre- Prep, Prep and Senior School, was established in 1587. An independent co-educational day and boarding school for ages four to 18, the original mission of the school was to provide an education for the young who would then give back to their community, thus enriching it and them all; this is embedded and continues in all that we do today.
Combining the best of tradition and innovation, Woodbridge School offers an education that shapes itself around each student, ensuring they become everything they are meant to be. Offering parents and students clear vision and values, which guide dynamic, respectful, high-achieving students to not only find their path but to fulfil their potential; at Woodbridge your child’s journey is our entire focus.
In and outside the classroom
Our curriculum delivers the perfect balance of life skills, creative challenges and academic excellence, students can expect an exceptional relationship with teachers as they work together to ensure every opportunity is given to develop as an individual and work with each other. Woodbridge students have access not only to an excellent education but to a wealth of pastoral care, co-curricular activities, societies and sport. From learning hockey with a double Olympian, working with precious metals and fabrics in leatherworking and silversmithing, to attending chess lessons taught by an International Chess Master, learning and exploring new techniques in Maths challenges, experimenting for fun in Science Club and debating with our MUN club, there is something for every student. We encourage students to be enthusiastic in trying as many activities as they can, and every new academic term provides a great opportunity to try something new.
We expect students to work hard, develop the ability to work independently and to achieve excellent results; believing that successful education is very much a joint venture between parents, students and staff. Of course, preparing young people for life means much more than just excellent grades. It means young people developing strong communication skills, the ability to lead and work with others and, above all, a self- confidence to positively contribute to the society in which they live. This means at Woodbridge, what happens outside of the classroom is just as important as what happens inside.
A comprehensive system of bus routes
With a number of minibus services operating daily throughout the local region, Woodbridge School offers a comprehensive system of bus routes reaching across Suffolk as well as Essex. Our aim is to be flexible with services and includes destinations such as Layer Berton, Colchester, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Aldeburgh and Lowestoft, to name just a few.
Boarding options
For those living further afield, the school offers full and weekly boarding options. Boarders form a vital part of the community at Woodbridge School, with everyone supporting and learning from one another. Our boarding house is co-educational and provides a true home from home for students on either a full or weekly boarding basis.
