Woldingham is one of the UK’s leading boarding and day schools for girls aged 11-18. Set within 700 acres of the most beautiful Surrey countryside, Woldingham provides an inspiring and safe place for students to become confident, compassionate and courageous young women ready to take their place in the world. It’s a place where students are helped to “write your own story” through excellent teaching, boundless opportunities and first-rate pastoral care.

Not only is Woldingham’s location inspiring, it’s remarkably accessible. London is just 30 minutes away by train and Woldingham is only 30 minutes from Gatwick Airport and 45 minutes from Heathrow Airport.

Main House, the stunning 19th century mansion at the centre of the school, sits alongside purpose-built science labs, humanities and language hubs, studios for art, drama and music, and a professional standard 600-seat auditorium.

Students achieve outstanding GCSE and A Level results to secure places at leading universities opening doors to exciting careers. Students can choose from a wide range of academic enrichment opportunities, from societies for debating, law and philosophy through to extra qualifications in areas such as mathematics and sports leadership.

Sitting alongside this is an exceptional co-curricular programme of sport, clubs, performing arts and outreach into the local community enabling students to develop a wonderful range of skills, expertise and interests.

Sport is very important at Woldingham, with excellent indoor and outdoor facilities. The hockey and netball teams compete locally and regionally with first-class training from specialist coaches. The tennis dome means tennis can be played year round, as well as on outside courts in the summer. There is an indoor swimming pool, squash courts, fitness suites, dance studio and sports hall.

The beauty and peace of Woldingham in the Surrey Hills makes it the perfect place to board. Boarders live with their own year group in comfortable and well-equipped boarding houses, and there is a great sense of community. The fantastic and experienced team of housemistresses really understand how to help new girls settle in quickly and make the most of school life.

As one of the UK’s oldest girls’ schools, Woldingham is proud to be a pioneer of women’s education. Our single-sex environment is supportive and stimulating. It enables students to be themselves and to grow into independent women who will make a positive contribution to the world.

Woldingham is a Sacred Heart Catholic school. We warmly welcome students of all faiths and none.
