10th August 2021 — Woldingham students are celebrating 2021 A Level results day accepting places at top UK and international universities including the University of Cambridge, RADA and Central Saint Martins in the UK and MIT and Cornell in the USA.

Dr James Whitehead, Woldingham Head said: "I am hugely proud of all that our Upper Sixth students have achieved over this last year as well as throughout their time at Woldingham.

"Our Upper Sixth students have demonstrated resilience and determination; they should be very proud of all they have achieved not just in their A Levels but in the music, drama, sport, art and every other aspect of life at Woldingham, which makes it such a special place to be at school."

He continued: "Our aim is to support and enable students to ‘write your own story’ and the range of outstanding institutions and universities and breadth of courses students have chosen demonstrate this perfectly.

"Subjects chosen range from art to veterinary science, from computer science to drama and from medicine to theology.

"They have such an exciting future ahead and on behalf of everyone at Woldingham we wish them the very best of luck in whatever they do next."

Woldingham students are headed off to a very wide range of universities.

Outgoing Deputy Head Girls lead the way with Sofia reading theology at Downing College, Cambridge; Misan going to Warwick to take a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Law (PPL) and Milan heading to St Andrews to read computer science.

So many students excelled, showing incredible resilience in their studies throughout the pandemic.

Woldingham’s strong track record in drama and art continues this year with Theo winning a place at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) and Daisy travelling to New York to take up a place at the prestigious Parsons School of Design.

Woldingham Sport Scholar and GB skier Sophie, who represented Great Britain at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne, Switzerland in January 2021, has a place at Durham to study accounting and finance while continuing with her skiing.

Other popular university choices for Woldingham students include Edinburgh, Exeter, Manchester, Sussex and London, including LSE.

Woldingham School (Girls 11-18) is a day and boarding school in Surrey.
