Withington Girls' School
Withington is a leading independent day school for girls aged 7 to 18 in which some of the best academic results in the country are attained within a lively, happy and caring environment. Our outstanding record of achievement is complemented by an extensive range of extracurricular opportunities.
In keeping with the wishes of our founders, the School has remained relatively small to allow for the individual development of all girls, enabling every pupil to reach her full potential in a supportive and friendly environment. The School functions in an atmosphere of respect for self, respect for others and personal responsibility without the need for long lists of rules and regulations.
The result is a community where pupils are enthusiastic learners who take full advantage of the impressive breadth of educational and personal opportunities. Our A-Level and GCSE results consistently confirm the School’s position as one of the top schools in the UK and the best-performing school in the North West of England. The girls thrive in a friendly and caring environment; they have – and provide – a lot of fun, and leave to take up their higher education places personally, socially and academically prepared for the next exciting phase of their lives.
