Working with Forces families
We understand that both parents and children are looking for a school that can offer them a place to learn and live, where they can put down roots and become part of a community. We have a long history of supporting students from forces families to excel and we provide a vibrant and friendly living environment, coupled with an excellent education. Woodbridge School offers a 10% discount to our Forces families, where a student is boarding full time and the family are in receipt of Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA).
Payment of fees
There are two ways to pay fees for the School:
Our preferred method of payment is by direct debit from a UK bank account. This is a simple and convenient way of paying school fees. You will still receive a termly bill as normal prior to the collection date which will provide details of the amounts due.
We offer two direct debit payment options for fees:
Termly direct debit – where the fees for each term are collected in full on or shortly after the first day of each term
Monthly direct debit – where each term’s fees are collected over three equal monthly instalments. The collection dates are:
Michaelmas term – on or after the first of September, October and November
Lent term – on or after the first of January, February and March
Trinity term – on or after the first of April, May and June
Any extras on the fee bill will be collected by direct debit termly on or after the first day of the next term.
If you wish to pay by bank transfer or cheque, payment must be received in cleared funds on or before the start of each term.
The bank details for payment are included on your fee bill or can be obtained from the Income and Fees Administrator. Please ensure the pupil’s name and reference number are included in the payment reference. Cheques should be addressed to Woodbridge School for the attention of the Income and Fees Administrator.
Please note that we do not accept cash as payment for fees.
Fees in advance scheme
The School operates a fees in advance scheme whereby a lump sum payment can be made to cover future fees. Where fees are paid in advance for at least two years, a discount is provided which is free of tax. For further details and to request a personalised illustration please contact Simon Stafford, Director of Finance, on SStafford@seckford-foundation.org.uk
For international payments, our preferred method of payment is by using Flywire. Flywire allows you to pay from almost any country and any bank. They also offer excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save money, compared to traditional banks.
Pay international fees
Alternatively, payments can be made by bank transfer as above. Please ensure the pupil’s name and reference number are included in the payment reference.

We prefer to hear early on about any potential issues, and will always deal with your case with complete confidentiality.
