Hi everyone. We are moving to Woodbridge - can anyone let me know if there are any dodgy areas there? We are wanting to get the kids into a good school ...
Thanks smile

How old are your children? There are 3 primary schools in Woodbridge itself. Kyson, St Mary's and Woodbridge Primary. Kyson is the largest with a 2 form entry the others are a one form entry. St Mary's is a faith school and I understand is generally over subscribed. All schools are good. If you need a high school, Farlingaye is in Woodbridge and rated outstanding by OFSTED. If you are looking for an independent school there is Woodbridge School which takes children from reception through to 18.

Are you actually going to be living in Woodbridge? Feel free to ask any more questions.

Hi there, my kids are 4 and 6 (6 year old is special needs with delay in development). Is Woodbridge a nice place to live? (Yes - we will be living in Woodbridge). We are moving from abroad and have applied to the Woodbridge school, Melton and Keyson. It is going to be a huge adjustment so worried about my kids, especially the 6 year old.

Woodbridge is really lovely. I'd avoid living in the Peterhouse Crescent area around Kyson school but everywhere else is good.

If you're worried about adjustment they might be better at a smaller school- Woodbridge or Melton.

There are also lovely villages near by worth considering. Grundisburgh has a good school as does Bealings.

Thanks so much .. We will look into a smaller school.
We will be in Bury Hill so I hope that will be a nice area smile
