Prep: Beyond the Classroom

Co-curricular activities are central to the all-round development of our students. We aim to provide as many opportunities as possible to expand their experiences, enriching their lives both inside and outside of school.

Developing self confidence

The School offers an extensive range of co-curricular activities which take place before School, at lunchtime and after School.

The great benefit of such activities is that they provide opportunities for pupils to extend their existing skills or knowledge and to try something new in a highly supportive environment.

Dedicated groups

Take a look at the range of clubs, ensembles, groups and teams that Woodbridge School Prep students are encouraged to try.

Musical Groups

Children have the opportunity to participate in a number of choirs, instrumental groups and ensembles that emphasise enjoyment as much as developing their pitch, rhythm and aural skills. Performance opportunities include annual music festivals, lunchtime recitals, masterclasses, workshops and high profile concerts at Snape Maltings.

Drama Groups

Drama activities play a key role in personal development. Using dialogue, self-expression, exploration, the development of social skills and the opportunity to ‘play’ the role of an adult under the guise and safety of ‘pretend’, there is no better way to prepare for life than through rehearsal.

Chess Clubs

Children have the opportunity to join clubs overseen by Woodbridge School’s Head of Chess, catering to every ability level from beginners to tournament players. Pupils have their very own dedicated chess classroom, private lessons and the chance to participate in a whole host of internal competitions.

Engineering Club

We see engineering as the practical core of STEM that utilises science and maths to create technology, not just study what already exists. The School’s enthusiasm for Engineering has developed beyond structured lessons, with Prep pupils able to join our long-established car mechanics club.

Forest School

Forest School enables us to bring the curriculum to life, expanding on our philosophy for exploratory, investigation-led learning. Developing core life skills in a fun and challenging environment – incorporating games, crafts, tools, cooking and more – ensures that our pupils really embrace the education of the whole self.

School Trips

Throughout the School year, we organise various one-day and extended stay trips for pupils to further expand their experiences and learning. Suffolk is home to some amazing local historic sites, while residential visits allow students to practise core Woodbridge skills including resilience, independence and collaboration.
