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.
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.
Despite the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award candidates have contributed 975 hours to community volunteering between April 2020 and March 2021, with a social value of £4,436.25.
History of The Seckford Foundation
The Foundation’s fascinating roots lie deep in Elizabethan London, as well as the Woodbridge area where Thomas Seckford was born.
