The Curriculum Statement

The curriculum at WGGS is an academic one. Its aims are ambitious: to provide students with a deep knowledge of the subjects they study; to foster in students powers of analysis, critical thought and creativity; to enable students to make ethical decisions, which are informed by their knowledge of their own culture and the culture of others; and to develop students as independent learners, ready to move to the next stage of their education. Teaching is planned carefully, responding to the needs of individuals, and ensuring that each student is challenged to think rigorously. Students leave WGGS confident in their abilities, with a commitment to lifelong learning, and as leaders ready to shape their own futures in a liberal and democratic society.
