A very warm welcome to Walderslade Girls’ School. As one of the few all girls, non-selective High Schools in the Medway district we are proud to offer a fully inclusive, wide ranging and holistic education for all our students. We are a non-denominational school but hold very dear the principles and values that are common to many faiths. We are first and foremost a close community where every girl is known as an individual, where staff and students work together sharing mutual respect and where the pursuit of excellence permeates everything that we do. The nurture and care for all our girls is made possible by the fact that we are, by comparison to others, still a relatively small school. We offer 160 places in each year group from Year 7 to 11 and encourage as many girls as possible to continue their education in our joint 6th form.
We are extremely proud of our results at both GCSE and A Level. Our 2012 results were the best ever recorded and place our school alongside the top performing high schools in the county. However, we are not content with resting there. We seek to improve year on year to enable all our girls to achieve the highest grades and equip them with the skills and attributes that are necessary to live a happy, healthy and successful life. We want all our girls to enjoy coming to school. We strive to ensure academic success but also offer a range of wider curricular activities and experiences to educate the whole child.
Although our curriculum and teaching methods are progressive, we hold on to certain traditions; we have high standards of discipline, uniform and stewardship, instilling the importance of good manners and respect. We have excellent support systems in place and above all, a staff who genuinely care for all the girls and strive for their success.
Many visitors to the school remark on the friendly atmosphere and how happy the girls are. Come along and see for yourself!
