Woodbridge School Prep

We provide children from 4-11 with a caring and stimulating environment, instilling them with a love of learning and a sense of fun and mutual respect.  Children are supported to develop new skills, grow in confidence and understanding and to embed analytical and creative thinking through a broad and exciting curriculum.

Welcome from our Head

Welcome to Woodbridge School Prep where the saying ‘happy children learn best’ is absolutely at the heart of what we do in an exceptional educational environment in which children from Year 3 through to Year 6 can flourish together and as individuals.

Working together as a family, with all the vibrancy, support and close community that brings, we work hard to ensure that those under our care are consistently encouraged to seek out adventure, rise to challenges, accept the value of mistakes and enjoy everyone’s achievements.

Our School is a special place and I would be delighted to invite you to visit our community, and allow me to show you round so that you can see and feel for yourselves the atmosphere the children and staff create together.

Head, Woodbridge School Prep

Day in the life

In addition to an engaging and inspiring programme of learning, a Prep School pupil’s typical day might involve creative skills, music, team sports, forest school, engineering, food technology, mindfulness activities or one of the many clubs for hobbies and interests.

The sense of community and support around our School sets the perfect tone for our younger students to fully develop and thrive.


CLICK stands for: Communication, Leadership, Initiative, Collaboration and Kindness – the set of positive characteristics that run through every activity at the Prep School.
