Farlingaye High School is a popular and successful school, located in Woodbridge, a pleasant market town situated on the River Deben in Suffolk and just 7 miles from Ipswich. We are a creative school with excellent resources, lovely students and great results. Our most recent Ofsted report graded us Good with Outstanding features.

We are part of East Anglian Schools Trust (EAST) alongside Kesgrave High School, Bungay High School and Castle East School. We are a Teaching School Hub partner, which allows us to improve teaching and learning on a continuous basis. We are committed to providing excellent staff opportunities through developing and promoting our staff and offering an excellent CPD and support programme for new staff.



It is an extremely exciting time for the school, as we build on proud traditions of success and continue to grow a warm and hard-working community, where strong personal development for all is highly-prized and actively pursued. Our students are, overwhelmingly, happy to be part of Farlingaye, and engage with the many opportunities that the school provides for academic success and progression into the next phase of their lives. Their efforts have been rewarded with excellent exam results in recent years, at both GCSE and A Level, and huge numbers of students have been enabled to access high-quality university courses or to pursue exciting employment or training opportunities.

There is a very wide range of extra-curricular activities available for students, and we strongly encourage all students to get involved with these in order to develop their social skills and self-esteem. We know that a positive and secure sense of self is vital for our students, and we use a wide range of methods to help them to feel good about themselves, and optimistic about their futures.

At Farlingaye, we are fortunate to be able to draw on the invaluable input of engaged and supportive parents and a well-established Governing Body. We have a committed and highly-skilled staff body, and our status as a Teaching School Hub Partner helps us to be on the cutting edge of staff training and development. We believe that everyone is a learner, and that we all have a role in continuing to find improvements in everything that we do.

Dr Andy Sievewright, Headteacher
