WCHS Old Girls’ Association

The OGA is a formal association which aims to maintain links between all Old Girls and the School.  It enables past pupils to visit the School and meet friends in the old familiar surroundings of Woodford through its annual celebration of School Birthday on the last Saturday in September.  It also supports the work and well-being of Woodford County High School through the funding of annual prizes, discretionary awards and to various projects around the School.

Membership of the OGA is £5.  If you wish to subscribe to the Association, please write to:
Katy Woodhead, 32 Albion Hill, Loughton, IG10 4RD

School Birthday 2018 and 2019

It is no longer possible for Old Girls to attend the Assembly at School on School Birthday without prior notification to the School.  This is due to new safeguarding requirements.  Furthermore, it will not be possible for the School to accommodate any OGs for the 100th Birthday Assembly in 2019.

Any Old Girl, whether or not she is a member of the OGA, is welcome to attend its AGM and Birthday Tea on 29th September 2018, start time 3pm.  Tea costs £3, payable on the door.  If you would like to attend, please email the Chairman, Rosemary Davis, so that appropriate catering arrangements can be put in place:

The Association will be holding an all-day event to celebrate School’s 100th Birthday on Sunday 29th September 2019.  If you would like to attend, it is imperative that you notify the Chairman in advance as this will be a ticketed event.  

In addition, Rosemary would very much like to hear from Old Girls who would be able to help with running this event. Email: chairman.wchsoga@gmail.com or write to: 2 Rose Cottages, Mill Street, Hastingwood, Harlow CM17 9JQ

Painting of WCHS
Thanks to information from Sally Feldt and Eileen Handley, we now know that this was painted by Susan Hartley in July 1979. Susan was at WCHS 1972-1979 and was chosen by Mrs Taylor to paint the picture, which may have been to celebrate School's Diamond Jubilee in 1979.
