As one of the consistently top performing high schools in the county, we offer a progressive curriculum that is firmly rooted within the parameters of traditional values. We uphold good manners and have the highest expectations of our girls both academically, and in their behaviour and conduct. Our approach is to meet the needs and aspirations of every child, whatever their level of ability.
The school experience at WGS provides a wealth of opportunities for girls to develop their inner talents and gifts. The most academically able are challenged through their learning to achieve the highest grades and never to settle for second best. Students for whom learning is more challenging are supported and nurtured through an inclusive approach to education that enables them to develop their confidence and to enjoy success.
WGS is, above all, a very happy school. For students to learn and thrive they need to feel cared for, valued and supported. We place great emphasis on high quality pastoral care, and the work of the tutors and Heads of Year is supported by a designated team of specialist pastoral support staff.
Society today poses many challenges to young people. They need to be confident, resilient, and able to think creatively. Every day at WGS these important skills and attributes are promoted and developed. Our girls are encouraged to be independent in their thinking and problem solving.
As school is such a central part of a young person’s life, it is therefore important to have challenging, engaging and above all, fun activities to look forward to. The academic curriculum is supplemented by a superb range of co-curricular clubs and activities designed to meet the needs and interests of all the students. Throughout the academic year we always have something new ahead on the calendar.
When our girls look back on their time at WGS they remember with such fondness that they were, and will always be, a Walderslade Girl. Our school is incredibly special – you are warmly invited to visit and see for yourself.
