Woldingham School

2226.jpg

Founded in 1842, Woldingham sits within a beautiful, rural 700 acre estate. London is just 25 minutes away by train and (with a touch of Hogwarts) the station is within the school's grounds. Many London families choose Woldingham as a day or flexi boarding option.

'Woldingham can be regarded as a London day school with the benefits of a boarding school environment and ethos, and it has given our daughter the best of both worlds: the countryside and London. Woldingham provides her with a peaceful place to study and to escape the fast pace of urban life in the city. The commuting has given her independence, which has indirectly impacted her attitude towards independent study.'

At Woldingham learning and endeavour are highly valued, and it is this academic ethos that enables the school to achieve better results than many more academically selective schools. 'Value Added' scores, which measure academic achievement relative to initial ability, place Woldingham in the top 7% of all schools in the UK over the last five years. Not surprisingly, the school is marching up the league tables and has secured 18 Oxbridge offers in the last two years.

'What I love about being a student here is that working hard is cool. The amount of support and encouragement you receive from teachers is incredible. I was delighted to exceed my expectations at GCSE and do so well.'

Woldingham's exemplary pastoral care is widely recognised: 'What has really stood out for us at Woldingham is the pastoral care. Guidance, support, care, thought and consideration from her peers and teachers – this is where Woldingham really excels.'

With over 80 co-curricular activities on offer in any week this is a busy and happy community; girls are encouraged to 'have a go' across a diverse range of sporting, social, cultural and intellectual clubs. The girls make friends for life and as a result the alumnae network is extremely active, both socially and professionally.

Whilst Woldingham is proud of its academic rigour and success, being part of the Woldingham community is also about so much more. A Woldingham education enables girls to achieve the academic standing, the social ease and the confidence to be themselves; they leave Woldingham with extensive and lifelong friendships, ready to seize the opportunities ahead.
