Truly exceptional: Our academic results 

“A school with dazzling academic results… Girls who have a deep thirst for knowledge and learning will absolutely fly at this impressive high-performing school.”

The Good Schools Guide

A genuinely outstanding school isn’t judged solely on its results and league tables.

That’s why a Withington education is about so much more than academic performance. However, we can’t help but feel a deep pride in the remarkable results achieved by our students. They’re a credit to our dedicated staff – and, most importantly, the results are a testament to our wonderful girls.

But please don’t just take our word for it… We’ve been named Independent School of the Year for Academic Performance in the North West in the prestigious Sunday Times Parent Power Schools Guide 2024. It’s our fifth consecutive year of receiving awards from The Sunday Times, including being named as North West Independent Secondary School of the Decade in 2021.

Ambitious attitude: Our students’ university destinations

When our girls leave us to continue their educational journey, we’re delighted to see that 80% of leavers gain places on their preferred degree courses at their chosen universities. We’re proud of each and every student. The breadth of subjects our students progress to study reflects the wide range of opportunities they experience here at Withington.
