Open Days and Visits

There are few things more important than choosing the right school for your child. The special atmosphere at Withington Girls’ School encourages and extends each girl not just academically but in every area of her life. We invite you to come and visit us and see for yourself all that Withington has to offer.

Our Whole School Open Events provide the opportunity to see Junior, Senior and Sixth Form facilities.

Further Information

The main entry points to Withington are Year 3, Year 7 and Year 12 with some availability of spaces in other Years.

We were delighted that our 2018 A-Level and GCSE results confirmed WGS as the best performing independent school in the North of England in the Sunday Times Parent Power tables (published in November of each year).

2019 A-Level and GSCE results also reflected particular success among our pupils in achieving the very top grades; 32% of A-level subject grades were passed at A*, while 56% of GCSE results were achieved at Grade 9 or A* Distinction in Further Maths. The vast majority of 2019 leavers achieved or exceeded their offers to study the subject of their choice at the university of their choice.

Withington Girls’ School’s most recent inspection was a Regulatory Compliance Inspection carried out by ISI in September 2017.

The School was judged to be fully compliant with all of the Regulatory Standards. GCSE and A-level results are described as ‘well above’ and ‘far above the national average for maintained schools’ respectively.


If you would like to arrange an individual visit, please contact our Admissions Officer, Ms Jane Ellis, on or 0161 249 3371.
