Woodlark was one of the founding Fellows of King's College in 1441.He was appointed Provost of King's in 1452, eventually being succeeded in 1479, by Walter Field.

Woodlark did not contemplate undergraduates at the college, instead desiring a small community of senior scholars of theology and philosophy.

Woodlark never served as Master of St Catharine's, instead appointing Richard Roche as the college's first true master in 1475.
