Girls at Worth
The first girls arrived at Worth in 2008 and the school is now fully co-educational in all year groups. As noted in the Ofsted report of Jan 2011: “The introduction of girls to what had previously been a boys’ only school has been extremely positive and enriched the daily life of the school.”
The impact on the girls has also been positive as they have grown in confidence and thrown themselves into all that Worth has to offer. Academic results have been excellent with the first ‘Worthian’ girls going on to top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. In the last year, Worth girls have worked with the boys to put on some stunning theatrical and musical events, performed a play in French (which they also wrote), as well as organising fundraising events and the Leavers’ Ball. Girls are everywhere in school life from the Chess team and the Debating Society Committee to the Abbey Choir, the Fencing team and Duke of Edinburgh expeditions. They also hold roughly half of the Prefect positions.
The advent of girls has resulted in the wider curriculum being expanded to reflect their general and specific interests, and this is reviewed every year.
