The Seckford Foundation

Established in the 16th century by Thomas Seckford – courtier to Queen Elizabeth I, lawyer and contemporary philanthropist – the Foundation continues his vision to provide exceptional care and education to elderly and young people in the Woodbridge area.

The Foundation’s core branches

The Seckford Foundation administers the following fields of activity:

Seckford Foundation
Managing the endowments and properties under their remit.
Seckford Care
Assisted living for the elderly in a quality environment.
Seckford Theatre
A cutting-edge modern facility for productions and seminars.

Charity and fundraising

Woodbridge School supports its community in many ways, and one of these ways is working with the Bridge School. Over the last 24 years, the School and Mr Streat have helped to raise over £275,000 for the Bridge school and we are thrilled to continue this support.

Our Christmas Fairs help raise funds for local charity Home Start, while students will also choose various charities throughout the year to support and generously raise funds in many fun ways.

The history

The Foundation’s fascinating roots lie deep in Elizabethan London, as well as the Woodbridge area where Thomas Seckford was born.

What’s on

The Seckford Theatre is  situated in the beautiful grounds of Woodbridge School. The Theatre reflects the commitment of both Woodbridge School and the Seckford Foundation to benefit all in the local area. The Theatre has welcomed local groups such as the Deben Players, The Company of Four and The Eastern Angles, alongside national companies such as The Royal Ballet.

We have an exciting series of events, which you can view using the link below.
