Award Shortlisting for Woodbridge School Prep

8 Sep 23

We’re absolutely thrilled and delighted to share news of three wonderful achievements for our Prep School; we recently achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark (PQSM), were shortlisted for The Independent Schools Awards Prep School of The Year, and most recently have received the Silver award for Learning Outside The Classroom (LOTC) Initiative.

Primary Science Quality Mark (PQSM)
The only national award scheme to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools, we were thrilled to announce achievement of the PQSM recently, confirming and recognising the importance of continued development of science teaching and learning, and our commitment to constantly developing and reflecting on practices and continued progression of science in our School. Since its launch in 2010, only 5,000 schools across the UK have achieved this prestigious award, led by the University of Hertfordshire, in collaboration with the Primary Science Teaching Trust.

Independent Schools Awards shortlist
We submitted our entry into the Prep School of the Year Award category, earlier in the year, and just before the summer break we received confirmation that our entry had been shortlisted. Providing detailed information about our School, demonstrating the all-round provision provided, vision and values, the entry highlighted aspects of the School in line with the criteria set by the Award organisers and judges. The awards receive entries from hundreds of schools across the country each year, so we are incredibly pleased and proud to have been shortlisted.

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Initiative
We have most recently received a Silver LOTC award in recognition of our commitment to offering well-planned, engaging and impactful learning beyond the classroom at our Prep School. The award is presented by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom and also recognises the wonderful and continued work in School, particularly from Miss Sara Cox-Oliff who has worked tirelessly to achieve this award. Our School’s outdoor classroom development and activities further emphasise the importance we place and recognise in outdoor learning, something that is shared throughout the School and our community; it also recognises our continued work and relationship with Suffolk Wildlife Trust on the Wilder Schools programme.

Congratulations to everyone involved in all three of these achievements, including our teachers, non-teaching staff and of course our students.
