The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has placed Woldingham School in its top band ‘excellent’, which is equivalent to Ofsted’s ‘outstanding’, in all inspected areas of activity: pupils’ achievements and learning, curricular and extra-curricular provision, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils, pastoral care, boarding, governance, and leadership and management.
Louise Robinson, President of the Girls’ Schools Association is delighted with this result, “It’s never surprising when a girls’ school proves to be outstanding when it comes to inspection time. They create environments which enable girls to engage wholeheartedly with learning, free from distraction and stereotypical expectation.”
The report continues, “The quality of the pupils’ achievements and learning is excellent. The school fully meets its aims for pupils to meet challenges and achieve excellence in whatever they choose to do, according to their ability. Throughout the school, the pupils achieve outstanding success in their learning. “
The ISI report affirms, “The quality of teaching is excellent and the school benefits from excellent governance, leadership and management and from the total commitment of staff, both teaching and non-teaching, who give unstintingly of time, energy and expertise, to the happiness and success of the pupils.”
This follows a very successful set of examination results in 2011, 83% of all grades at A level were A*, A and B with 57% at A* and A. Twenty girls achieved three A grades or more. At GCSE, 70% of all grades achieved were A* and A.
