About Woodbridge Sixth Form

If you are considering Sixth Form at Woodbridge School, you’re probably on the verge of having a clutch of new academic qualifications to your name. You will have begun to think about how, where, and with whom, you want to spend the next two years of your life. This is a very important time between school and your future career; it’s a time of many of choices, and it is important to make the right ones for you. We very much hope that an introduction to our School will inspire you to come and spend the next two years with us, and let us help to guide you through those difficult decisions.

Our Sixth Form students have received excellent grades for another year, with 93.8% achieving A*- C. We could not be more delighted with how our ‘Class of 2020’ has risen to the exceptional challenge, and particularly the demands of recent months, to achieve our best A Level results ever. These results are testament to the hard work, dedication and complete commitment of both the students and teachers here at Woodbridge School. Behind each grade is a superb story and, as a community, we are proud of the fact that we serve to bring the very best out of each individual, celebrating their individual and collective success.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most students at Woodbridge will take three A Levels and we also offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which counts as half an A Level. Some students may choose to study four A Levels.

We have a significant number of A Level subjects on offer at Woodbridge, and we are happy to offer support and guidance when it comes to deciding on your options. It is important that you do things you are passionate about and specialise by playing to your strengths.

See the A Level Options Booklet for more information about the subject options, the support you will receive and all the other fantastic opportunities on offer.

Our extra-curricular programme is an important element in the exceptional education that the Sixth Form at Woodbridge provides.

There are many clubs and activities on offer at Woodbridge, from Model United Nations to Duke of Edinburgh; Young Enterprise to chess; dance to fencing. These clubs offer opportunities to extend academic interests or to try something totally new. All students are encouraged to try at least one extra-curricular club a week.

The Seckford Scheme takes place on a Friday afternoon and offers students the chance to participate in the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) or Sports Leadership Award Scheme, help at the Thomas Wolsey School, work in theatre tech, indoor wall climbing, or digital photography to name just a few opportunities.

See our A Level Options Booklet and Activities Booklet for more information

We have regular testing weeks every 6 weeks or so, alongside formal exams twice a year, after which the Sixth Form team look at the grades of all students and meet with any students who may need additional support and guidance. Parents may also be informed.
Music/chess/LAMDA lessons are on offer, which are paid for separately, and occur during the school day. The times will change weekly so as not to fall on the same lesson. Students take responsibility to ensure that they find their times and remember to go to the lessons. Students are expected to catch up on any work missed, and complete any prep work set during missed lessons.
You are allowed to leave the School at lunchtime but must sign in and out at Reception. Unless otherwise authorised, this is to go into Woodbridge/to the Co-Op only. You are not allowed to use your car to drive or to drive others at this time and are not allowed to leave School during study periods or lessons.
Yes – Parent Reps exist for all year groups and their primary purpose is to organise social events but they also act as a useful point of contact for advice and support. Reps meet with the Head during the academic year and will be asked to gather parent feedback regarding any specific issues that may arise within the parent body. Stand-alone parent groups are also formed for the organisation of larger social events and if you would like to volunteer for anything please do get in touch.
