The curriculum at Woodbridge School is a traditional academic curriculum, combining breadth with a strong focus on the major academic disciplines. It aims to provide each pupil with the essential intellectual skills needed for later study, including the ability to think critically and logically, whilst still capturing the imagination and allowing for diversity of interests. All academic subjects are important and help to develop different areas of the brain, for example English develops the ability to use language precisely and creatively, whilst history and social sciences require that pupils are able to research and then construct clear, logical arguments based on their findings. In the creative arts, pupils are given extensive opportunities to create their own direction.
