Headteacher’s Welcome

Mrs McGowan

Welcome to Walderslade Girls’ School. As a small all-girls’ High School we cater for the needs and aspirations of girls of all abilities, from the most able and talented to those who thrive with extra support. Our unique Alpha programme stretches and challenges the most able and provides a viable and exciting alternative to a grammar education. We also offer a pioneering Transition Curriculum that takes the best from the primary model and enables our girls to step slowly into the world of secondary education. We are proud to serve the community of Medway and to offer a high quality and holistic education.

Our school is not a faith school but is built on the fundamental principles and values that are common to many faiths and cultures. Our school is renowned for excellence in the Performing, Creative and Visual Arts. Our girls are nurtured to draw out and develop their own personal strengths and gifts. Every student is known as an individual and our supportive and caring school community is strengthened and underpinned by shared values and a loyal, highly qualified and dedicated staff, many of whom are long-serving and committed to the school.
