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.
The teachers are willing to help you out if you need it, but challenge you at the same time. The new-found self-determination is what I believe is a crucial part of Sixth Form at Woodbridge School. I’ve had the School’s support all the way up to now, academically and mentally. I couldn’t envisage myself anywhere else.

The main difference personally was that Sixth Form helped to create an even better social environment, primarily because of the access to the common room and the subsequent greater integration between other years. There is also a larger sense of freedom in Sixth Form compared to the senior school. My advice to students thinking about joining Woodbridge School Sixth Form is do it, it’s great!

I found the transition very easy and everybody made a real effort to help me feel welcomed. I chose Woodbridge School because of the passion each teacher has for their subject, and the holistic view they take towards Sixth Form, because it is not wholly about grades, but also personal development. I would advise students to choose somewhere you will feel at home, and for me that was Woodbridge.

There is a much more of a community feel that I don’t think exists in other schools because everyone knows each other and people from different year groups get on really well. It is definitely a good idea to join Woodbridge because there are so many non-academic opportunities, which are really fun and will really help you in later life.

My teachers have really helped me to progress in my subjects and possible paths for the future. Students are closer to the teachers, which is great. I enjoy Sixth Form and appreciate the guidance my teachers give me for the future.

I found the transition period quite easy, everyone in the school is extremely friendly and helpful. I chose Woodbridge as it is a small, friendly and supportive Sixth Form, which nurtures your independence and helps you to succeed academically. I enjoy the variety of extra-curricular activities, such as the Seckford Scheme and Young Enterprise.
