Head PhotoFounded in 1842 by the Society of the Sacred Heart, Woldingham is a leading independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18 and one of the oldest girls' schools in the UK. Woldingham School's grounds are among the most extensive in England; its beautiful 700-acre estate is just 20 miles from London and there is a fast and direct train link to the station in the school grounds (25 minutes). Woldingham was awarded 'excellent' in all areas by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in 2018 and The Good Schools Guide described Woldingham as a 'delightful school with pupils to match, benefiting from first class leadership'.

Woldingham's strong sense of community is deeply ingrained and academic fulfilment and personal development go hand in hand. Woldingham girls understand about courage and integrity and develop into young women who achieve academic success and become positive influences in the world. Woldingham is a Catholic school which welcomes girls of all faiths or none.

Teaching is outstanding and Woldingham has an excellent track record of GCSE and A Level results, achieving 60% A*-A at A level and 65% 9-7/A*-A at GCSE in 2018. Students gain places at a range of top universities, predominantly Russell Group and Oxbridge.

Pastoral care is widely regarded as exceptional; Woldingham's unique THRIVE programme promotes emotional well-being and enables every girl to develop the growth mindset, resilience and self-worth to truly enjoy her successes and learn from her setbacks. Boarding facilities are excellent, with small dormitories for the younger girls and individual study bedrooms from Year 10 upwards. Full, weekly and flexi boarding are available and the school has a balance of pupils from London, Surrey and overseas.

Woldingham's co-curricular programme is rich and varied, with over 80 clubs on offer across the week and throughout the weekend; girls are encouraged to balance their study with activity. Athletes compete at local, regional and national level, and are helped by the extensive grounds which provide a wide range of excellent sporting facilities. Artists can be bold and experimental in the purpose-built art studio, while the Performing Arts Centre boasts an impressive 600-seat auditorium. Around this the Music and Drama departments are based; both see girls performing regularly and at the highest standard.
