About the School

Withington Girls’ School is a leading independent day school which has consistently achieved some of the best academic results in the UK. They have remained relatively small with less than 800 enrollments to help every girl to reach their full potential.

In recent years, WGS has been named the North West’s independent school of the decade by The Sunday Times, as well as has been ranked as the top independent school in the North West for academic results in the newspaper’s prestigious Schools Guide.Notable alumniJoanna Natasegara, British film director and producer
