WGGS in top 2.5% of state schools nationally

Data published by the government this week shows Watford Grammar School for Girls to be one of the top performing schools in the country.

The school’s Progress 8 result places the school in the top 2.5% of state schools nationally. Progress 8 measures the progress made by students in the school between the ages of 11 and 16.

The result reflects the success of those students who took GCSE examinations this summer. 66% of all grades achieved by students at the school were A*-A (or 9-7 in subjects which have been reformed).

Acting Headmistress Sylvia Tai said: ‘This is a wonderful piece of news, and the result of the hard work and dedication of students and staff in the school. It indicates that, in this school, all students are enabled to make exceptional progress’.

Staff celebrated the news with a specially baked cake, decorated with the Progress 8 score of 0.83.
