Dear Parents and Students,

We are delighted to welcome you to Woodbridge High School. Woodbridge offers a rich, stimulating and rewarding learning environment. As a co-educational, 11-18 comprehensive, our school caters for all students’ needs and ambitions. The education provided at Woodbridge will develop your child’s knowledge, understanding and skills such that they can become highly qualified, responsible citizens able to participate fully in all parts of community life.Our school motto is “Pride in Achievement”. Your son and daughter should find their learning highly challenging and stimulating. They will be taught by teachers with very high expectations about your child‟s excellent attitude and preparedness for work. We set high standards in every area of school life. Learning is stimulating and uses the latest technologies. Examination results are very strong. There are many activities beyond the classroom to involve your child further in the life of the school. The school is a caring, disciplined and happy place.

Particular care is taken to set out our ground rules of how the students should behave. I expect your child will tell you that we are strict, but having met these expectations they will have the benefit of being in a very happy, respectful and purposeful place. It is a pleasure to be in their company. Your child‟s education is of total importance to me and I will make every effort to set out a wide ranging curriculum that will set them up for success in their later lives. We will give you lots of information to help you appreciate more about your child‟s progress and their courses of study starting with this induction booklet. A partnership between us based on excellent communication and collaboration is the foundation of a child’s future success. I wish you every success in the coming years.”
