We are delighted to have revived the Woodbridge School Song in 2019; the song had been lost to us for many years but was brought to our attention by OWs John Digby and Michael Hounsfield. The current Woodbridge School Chamber Choir have re-recorded the song for us and we are pleased to share it with you all, we are certain this beautiful rendition will bring back many memories for our OW community. Listen here.
On Saturday 30 March 2019 we celebrated our Senior Alumni Lunch, where we were joined by over 80 OWs. During this day of celebration, we were pleased to share the recording of the song with our OW guests – many of whom spontaneously joined in the chorus! Here are what some of our guests had to say:
John Evans (OW 1944 – 1948)
“I am very glad that you have revived the school song, the chorus will remain in my memory for ever, we sang it at the assembly on the last day of every term, always a joyous occasion.”
Roger Burgess (OW 1947 – 1958)
“The school song has been going round in my mind all weekend. I could remember the first verse and chorus, which I think we used to sing the first and last verses with great gusto!”
