Girls at Woldingham School have excelled in the new GCSE qualifications for the third year running

Last Updated on : 22nd August 2019

Over a quarter of all Woldingham’s GCSE grades were at the highest 9 grade, 45% of grades were at 9-8 and half of the year group achieved seven or more 9-7 grades.

One in five girls achieved nine or more 9-8 grades, with Ria, Imogen, Charlotte, Cat, Jemima and Milan all gaining straight 9-8 grades. Imogen and Milan showed early STEM promise, winning the national Teen Tech Award in 2016 for their innovative educational app.

Indeed, Woldingham scientists have yet again shattered gender stereotypes with outstanding results. 80% of Chemistry and Physics grades were 9-8 and 73% of Biology grades were 9-8; over half of the grades in these subjects were 9.

Milan’s aptitude in STEM subjects was also rewarded more recently: she, and fellow student Grace, were awarded Arkwright Engineering Scholarships in June. Grace similarly achieved outstanding results including an A in Further Maths. This is a busy summer for her as she is currently applying her scientific skills on a much sought-after National Youth Theatre Backstage Course.

Talented music and academic scholar, Charlotte, has also proved that co-curricular commitment goes hand in hand with academic success. Charlotte is well known as a talented trombone player and is a regular highlight at school concerts; she has gained a complete set of 9-8 grades.

Sofia is the third of three talented Woldingham-educated sisters and has eight grade 9s amongst her excellent haul of GCSEs. Elder sister Isabella left Woldingham in 2015 to read English Literature at Manchester University and Mia is currently reading Neuroscience at Leeds.

Sophie’s GCSEs include seven graded at 9-8 and have been achieved with continued commitment to her GB ski training. Sophie has represented Great Britain and was the U16 English National Champion at Giant Slalom and Super G – making her the Overall English National Champion – and the U16 British National Super G Champion.

Headmistress, Mrs Alex Hutchinson, said:

“These are superb results and well deserved. Woldingham students combine academic endeavour with much broader interests; they are community minded and throw themselves into the wider opportunities available.  I am hugely proud of their academic success and thrilled that this has been achieved alongside national awards across such a variety of interests.”
