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. Set in 700 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside, Woldingham is reached in only 25 minutes by train from London (the station is in the school grounds).

A Catholic school which welcomes girls from all faiths and none, a sense of community is deeply ingrained at Woldingham. Girls are encouraged to become independent, enquiring young women, who forge lasting relationships, achieve academic success and become positive influences in the world. "Girls are encouraged to think big at this 175-year old institution and resilience is fostered." (Tatler Schools Guide 2018)

Examination results are consistently excellent, with the majority of Woldingham students going to Russell Group universities, including Oxbridge, and a growing number to leading North American universities. A top performing school for 'value added', girls typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE than their potential identified at the time of joining.

Pastoral care is widely regarded as exceptional: "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." (Year 10 parent) The unique THRIVE programme is embedded throughout the curriculum and Mindfulness sessions are available to all on a weekly basis.

Music and drama at Woldingham are dynamic and well-resourced, providing many and varied opportunities for pupils to perform, not least in the school's 600-seat auditorium. Sports coaches are experts in their field and include a hockey Olympian.

Girls participate enthusiastically in a wide range of sporting, social, cultural and intellectual clubs. With over 80 co-curricular activities on offer in any week - ranging from Mountain Biking to Medics Club and Mandarin - there is plenty to choose from.
