Welcome from Ms Boyes

WGHS represents an outward-looking school, producing confident and inspirational young women determined to make a positive contribution to society.

We nurture, encourage and challenge our girls so they are prepared for the rapidly changing modern world. At WGHS we strive to deliver a world class education to all through our High-Performance Learning programme.

A great education centres around what happens in the classroom, and the teaching and learning is at the heart of what WGHS does so well. We value both tradition and innovation; our girls learn in modern and challenging ways, and all staff encourage our girls to become independent thinkers. Our girls are pushed to achieve their very best. We are also aware that an outstanding education is not purely about academic results; it must include exceptional pastoral care, the Arts, Sport and extra-curricular opportunities. These are available in abundance enabling all to flourish and excel.
