Boarding at Woldingham offers students a wonderfully rich and rounded education. Academic studies are balanced with plenty of music, drama and sport alongside a huge variety of activities and trips.
At Woldingham, boarders live amongst their own year group. This further strengthens the community spirit in the boarding house as students are all at the same stage in their journey through school and sharing similar experiences, both academic and personal. It is little wonder that friendships formed at Woldingham last a lifetime.
Woldingham students have an excellent track record of doing well at both GCSE and A Level. We are committed to ensuring students achieve their chosen places at a wide range of educational destinations, including Oxbridge, Russell Group and overseas universities.
Learning at Woldingham extends well beyond the classroom. Students can choose from our exceptionally wide co-curricular programme of sport, clubs, performing arts and outreach into our local community. Woldingham has fantastic facilities including purpose-built science labs, hubs for languages and humanities, an art studio which is among the best in the country and amazing performance spaces for drama and music, including a 600-seat auditorium.
