Woldingham School is delighted with their A Level results this year. 80% of the grades achieved were A*, A and B and 54% of the grades were A* and A.
This year 20 girls achieved straight A* and A grades and 12 girls gained at least two A* grades. Ally Fung gained five A* grades combining Art with Mathematics, Chemistry, Chinese and Physics. Hannah Wilkinson achieved four A* grades in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Latin. Coupled with her A in AS Music last year, she proves what an all-round talent she is!
Exceptional results were produced by our Art and Biology departments. There were ten A* grades and four A grades for Art. Talented artist, Nicole Xu, was fast tracked onto an accelerated Foundation Course at Central St Martins, even starting her higher education course before she had sat her final A Level Mathematics paper. Nicole too, has achieved a string of A* and A grades and her work was exhibited at the Tate Modern in June. Nicole said, ‘I feel proud that I was a member of this adorable family. Woldingham has offered me so many things in the past two years. I couldn’t have achieved my results without the community here.’
The Biologists gained a fabulous 11 A* grades and eight A grades amongst their results. A Levels in Mathematics and the Sciences account for three of the four most popular subjects at Woldingham and we were thrilled that two thirds of these grades were A*-A.
Woldingham girls have a wide choice of A Level options and it is no surprise that they have chosen a broad range of subjects to study at top universities, both in the UK and abroad. Six will be going to US and Canadian Universities. Our boarders have secured places at the Ivy League Cornell University, Boston College and a scholarship to Parsons School of Design in New York.
Of our local and day girls, Josie Gilbert, Hannah Wilkinson and Isla Anderson are are among those who have places at Oxford and Cambridge; Deputy Head Girl, Hannah Baker’s A* and A grades have secured her a place at the prestigious Royal Veterinary College. Hannah Wilkinson said ‘Thank you so much to my teachers for all the support you gave me – staying behind after school, last minute catch ups – I am really grateful and delighted with my results.’
Headmistress, Jayne Triffitt, who retires this summer, said ‘I am thrilled and proud of the results this year. Each set of good results is the culmination of years of hard work and commitment by each individual girl. They have been taught and supported by a wonderful staff who have enabled them to follow their ambitions and go out confidently into the world.’
