Founded in 1842, Woldingham sits within a beautiful, rural 700 acre estate, just 25 minutes’ drive from London Gatwick airport and 45 minutes’ drive from London Heathrow airport. Central London is just 25 minutes away by train and the station is within the school's grounds.

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.

'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.' 

The modern boarding facilities, caring and experienced staff, and exemplary pastoral care make Woldingham an inspiring place to study. '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.'

The 250 boarders and 300 day girls at Woldingham enjoy taking part in over 80 co-curricular activities on offer in any week and 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.
