Sixth Form: Beyond the Classroom

Life at Woodbridge has always been about more than just academic attainment. Students constantly develop the skills, attributes and mindset essential for broader success in life, and our Sixth Form encourages young people to develop further, work collaboratively as a team, perform with confidence and to push themselves outside of their comfort zone to ultimately enrich their lives.

Preparing young people for life beyond school

Our strong, varied co-curricular programme is supplemented by specific days spent off-timetable, focusing on particular areas such as entrepreneurship and leadership, with the latter being a particularly strong aspect of the Sixth Form. Whatever you think will give you an advantage in life after school, we can focus on activities to suit.

Co-curricular activities are woven into our weekly schedule, with Friday afternoons dedicated to activities outside of the classroom under the umbrella of the community-based Seckford Scheme or focusing on students’ interests. Interest and achievement outside class builds confidence inside – both in oneself as well as each other.

General fields of activity

Music

There’s a wealth of music groups and ensembles to choose from, catering for everyone from the enthusiastic Year 7 beginner through to top grade Year 13 students. Opportunities include the Concert Band, Chamber Choir, Seckford Sinfonia, Pop Music Club, String Ensembles and many more!

Sport

After-school clubs and Friday activities exist for most of the sports offered at the School, taking place across our extensive grounds, all-weather pitches and superb indoor sports dome.

Drama

Most days, you will find our onsite professional theatre, the Seckford Theatre, resounding with the noise of a production in rehearsal, a full performance or academic drama studies. Join a club, or even apply for LAMDA lessons.

Chess

We are one of the very few schools in the world to have a full-time chess Master, Adam Hunt, who has coached the English junior teams. Find out more about lessons and the extensive range of chess clubs and events the School offers.

Combined Cadet Force

Divided into three sections – Royal Navy, Army and RAF – each has links and support from the regular services. Students get to exercise responsibility and leadership, and to learn from the services how they can best be developed as individuals. CCF is part of the Seckford Scheme.

Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award

Available to students from Year 10 upwards and covering Bronze, Silver and Gold levels, this excellent scheme develops skills, fitness, demonstrates commitment, and resilience to adversity. Expeditions form a major part of the award. DofE is part of the Seckford Scheme.

Further options

Model United Nations, equestrian, engineering, the School magazine and more… There are so many opportunities for students to broaden their horizons, develop their skills and prove their creativity, character and perseverance.
