Woldingham School

Marden Park, Woldingham, Surrey, CR3 7YA

Description

Woldingham is a leading independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18. Set in 700 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside, Woldingham is easily accessible - with a train station in the grounds, the school is only 25 minutes from Clapham Junction. Founded in 1842 by the Society of the Sacred Heart, Woldingham is one of the UK’s oldest girls’ schools and a pioneer of women’s education. In 2018, Woldingham was awarded ‘excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate across all areas.


Woldingham girls achieve excellent GCSE and A Level results with students taking up places at a wide range of national and international universities including Oxbridge and Russell Group. However, Woldingham is not a ‘hot house’ – the intake is deliberately broad.


Education at Woldingham extends well beyond the classroom. More than 80 extra-curricular clubs take place each week and girls are encouraged to try a range of different activities from sport to performing arts, from creative arts to academic enrichment and personal development.
Woldingham’s beautiful and extensive grounds provide a wide range of excellent sporting facilities with girls competing at local, regional and national level across a range of sports. The fantastic purpose-built art studio enables girls to be bold and experimental. Music and drama are based in a performing arts centre which boasts a 600-seat auditorium where girls perform regularly.


Woldingham has a strong, forward-thinking and kind community. Girls are encouraged to nurture respect for self, each other and for the environment. Friendships forged at Woldingham last a lifetime. Woldingham is a Catholic school which welcomes girls of all faiths or none. The Sacred Heart values – Intellect, Faith, Social Awareness, Community and Personal Growth – are at the core of a Woldingham education.


Pastoral care is exceptional. Woldingham‘s unique THRIVE programme promotes emotional well-being and enables every girl to develop resilience and self-worth. Woldingham has a balance of boarding and day girls, with an increasing number of local girls taking the option of flexi-boarding. Boarding facilities are excellent. Younger girls share small dormitories and girls from Year 10 upwards have individual study bedrooms. Boarders come from the UK and a wide range of overseas countries. Woldingham’s international perspective means girls are well prepared for the increasingly global careers market.
