Woldingham – where girls thrive

Set in 700 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside, Woldingham is one of the UK’s leading day and boarding schools for girls aged 11-18. Our vision is to provide an outstanding education that empowers women to change the world.

A community of learning

Learning at Woldingham is about much more than achieving excellent GCSE and A Level results. Learning extends well beyond the classroom through our exceptional co-curricular programme of sport, clubs, performing arts and outreach into our local community. Woldingham is a Catholic school, where we welcome students of all faiths or none.

A school designed for girls

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. Whether day or boarding, each student is known and supported as an individual to develop the resilience and self-worth that will remain with her for life.
