Supporting Woodbridge School

While school fees and the trusts and funds of the Seckford Foundation help Woodbridge School to function, we do rely on additional support to go the extra mile in our mission: to allow those who might not otherwise be able to afford it to receive a truly excellent, well-rounded grammar school education. Can you help us?

21st-century philanthropists

In supporting the School, modern day benefactors can have a huge influence on the future outcomes of gifted, intelligent children who are not in a position to help themselves. 

Would you be able to help us help them? There are a number of ways to offer support:

 

Bursary sponsorship

Bursaries are a vital lifeline to exceptional children whose families may not be able to afford the full cost of attending Woodbridge School. Learn more about how you can help change a life.

Help make great futures happen

 

Legacy support & the 1662 Society

We’ve been fortunate and privileged to have been included in the list of bequests following the passing of people with a love of Woodbridge School. Would you consider leaving a small sum in your will?

Ensure your legacy lives on

 

The OWs Tree

A beautiful metal sculpture to remember past students in perpetuity, the OWs’ Tree was commissioned and forged by hand by a local Suffolk artist, which is on permanent display in School Hall.   The names of OWs are engraved onto individual brass leaves and hang on the tree as a testimony to their participation in the life of the School.

As well as being a wonderful visual reminder of our alumni the OWs’ Tree will help to grow our Bursary Fund, which is needed now more than ever.  Suffolk parents and children need schools which are ambitious for their pupils and able to provide strong academic standards, preparing them for 21st century careers.  One in ten pupils in our Senior School is now on a means-tested bursary, but there are many more young people in our local community who could benefit from a Woodbridge education such as Neil…

“All of us have particular points that we consider to have been especially important when growing up. For me, one of these decisive moments was being offered a bursary-funded place at Woodbridge School. Clearly the academic aspect of any school is vital; the education I received at Woodbridge was of the highest level, and led on to me gaining a place at Cambridge University. Beyond academia the extra-curricular opportunities were exceptional and varied, enabling me to pursue interests in both sport and music which I continue to enjoy. I would not have been able to study at Woodbridge without the bursary I received, and the wider encouragement in my personal and academic development made a huge difference to me. I am extremely grateful to all who made it possible for me to attend as I can now say, with great confidence, I would not be where I am today without Woodbridge School.” Neil Alderton OW 2001-2008.

 

Covid-19 Emergency Bursary Fund

The pandemic has placed a lot of families in a very difficult situation financially, with a number of parents of existing students struggling to afford the School’s fees. This appeal was set up in particular response to this need.
