Since 1704, we have been nurturing independent, creative and ambitious young women. Building up a long tradition of academic excellence, our modern curriculum empowers our students to be the best they can be.
Our school maxim, “I can do it and I will do it” guides the students through their own Watford Girls journey.
I am honoured to lead this outstanding state school, supported by a talented and energetic staff and an engaged governing body. We value hard work and nurture scholarship, always encouraging our students to strive for excellence in all fields of study and extra-curricular activities.
Our vision and aims provide a sense of direction for the school, whilst our values shape how we encourage each person in our community to act, grow and develop and we hope they are shared by the families that choose to join WGGS. The pursuit of academic endeavour informs our curriculum and the outstanding teaching in every classroom, laboratory, workshop and sports area.
Our students have the opportunity to excel at music, drama and sport, as well as the chance to play an active role in the wider community by taking part in a wide range of charitable activities. As a result, they learn to be the best version of themselves; hard working, compassionate and high achieving.
We are a diverse and thriving community, founded on consideration, tolerance and trust. Our rich academic curriculum, strong and supportive pastoral care and wide range of extended activities are designed to compliment, challenge and inspire at all Key Stages. Students are encouraged to start their own societies, with the support of staff, to reflect their interests and passions. We value our status as a single-sex school whilst enjoying a close relationship with Watford Grammar School for Boys, with whom we share a common foundation, history and many joint learning opportunities.
Our school is built around our students. I invite you to explore our website to discover more about our amazing school and what it has to offer.
