Sixth Form Building, Woodbridge School

Woodbridge, Suffolk


Over the past seven years R G Carter has carried out several projects for The Seckford Foundation. The most recent of these was the construction of the new sixth form and teaching centre at Woodbridge School in Suffolk.


  • The new development is a striking contemporary building next to the school’s grade II listed Marryot House which dates back to the 1800s.
  • The sixth form centre is arranged around an internal covered courtyard and atrium with adjoining teaching centre, accessed through an internal street.
  • The project saw the demolition of the original teaching block before the construction of the new building, making delivery for the new term critical.


  • Recognised by the Suffolk Association of Architects as an example of outstanding merit and was presented with a craftsmanship award.


Air-vice Marshall Sam Goddard, Chairman of Governors –
“We are delighted that the building was completed on time for our first day of term. R G Carter has delivered the time-sensitive project with care and consideration, within a busy school environment.”
