Wakefield Girls High School is a high achieving, world class accredited school with a defining ethos which has prevailed for 150 years. At the heart of this ethos is the idea that there are no limitations on learning or what girls can achieve. We aim to develop each girl’s potential by creating an environment where they can flourish, providing an empowering education that makes them future ready and connected for life.
Research studies show that girls develop differently from their male peers and become more empowered, less influenced by peer pressure and achieve more at all-girl schools.
At Wakefield Girls, this is reflected every year by the number of girls who go on to become everything they want to be.
We make education enjoyable, with an agile and creative approach which is relevant to their future and helps them to succeed individually and collectively, enabling them to excel while showing care, consideration and respect for others.
Together, our girls are united in their passion, commitment and ability to make a difference by being thoughtful, considerate and confident enough to face any challenge and embrace every opportunity. Making friends and happy lifelong memories, as they go on to make their way in the world, their way.
Our values are not soft values, but real, practical values we all share and live and breathe every day.
