Woldingham School’s best ever A Level results

Last Updated on : 17th August 2018

Pupils at Woldingham School have achieved outstanding A Level results with 60% of grades achieved at A*-A and 22% of all grades at A*. This is the highest proportion of A*-A grades that the school has ever recorded.


Over 30 girls, more than a third of Woldingham’s A Level candidates, achieved all A* and A grades.

Gender stereotypes were shattered with some notable STEM successes – over 80% of grades were at A*-A in Chemistry and Further Maths. Freya Connor and Claudia Connolly both achieved 4 A*s: Freya has a place at Durham to read Physics and Claudia will study Mathematics at Warwick.

This is a summer of multiple celebrations for scientist and gifted musician, Maya Suen, who juggled her revision for Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Music whilst studying for a Diploma in Piano. Maya was awarded the distinguished FTCL Diploma for her recital of Beethoven’s Sonata No.23, just days before finding out her A Level results (all A*s and A grades). She will read Chemistry at Imperial College, alongside her classmates Yara Burvin (another Chemist) and Anqi Huang who will study Biological Sciences.

This was also a great year for our pupils headed to North American institutions: Tobi Ajayi is Ivy League bound with a place at Princeton and straight A*s; Milly Bhuridej has a place at NYU; Eden Kersse at UBC Vancouver; Suzanne Mulenga is off to Loyola Marymount; and Isabelle Johnson heads to Haverford.

Headmistress Mrs Alex Hutchinson commented:

“At Prize Day I urged our Sixth Form leavers to commit to their ambitions, to aim high and to smash the glass ceiling. Commitment is key to their individual success; and commitment is a skill that needs to be learnt and practised. This an integral part of a Woldingham education.

I am immensely proud of all that our girls have achieved; this summer’s stellar exam results show the decisive steps they have taken towards fulfilling their ambitions and I know they will prove highly influential in their chosen careers.”
