The English Department at Woldingham is a place of dynamic cultural engagement, literary stimulation, creativity and academic achievement.

English is a core subject for students in Years 7 to 11, and all students are grouped in sets according to their ability. In Key Stage 3, English courses are literature based, but also feature units on media. In Key Stage 4, all students study IGCSE English Language (Edexcel 4EA1) and GCSE English Literature (Edexcel 1ET0), and they consistently achieve excellent results. A wide range of teaching and digital resources are available for all year groups.

At Sixth Form, we follow Edexcel’s English Literature course (9ET0). A good proportion of the Sixth Form students study English at A Level, with many going on to read English or a literature-based course at university.

Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18 and is firmly established as one of the top girls’ independent schools in the UK, outperforming many schools that are far more selective in their admissions process. Central to this achievement is Woldingham’s academic enrichment and extra-curricular programmes, pastoral support and caring community. Close to London, yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham has a strong community and culture building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years. We are committed to an exciting future that is underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities.
