Since my very first day at Watford Girls, when I walked through the gates as an overly eager Year 7 with a slightly oversized blazer and an incredibly oversized rucksack, I have never felt anything but welcome. There’s not a day that’s gone by where I haven’t felt well supported and excited to involve myself in my academics. Both the staff and the students really made every effort to make Watford Girls feel like my second home, and I truly believe that I would not be sat where I am today had it not been for this school, and the girl it helped me grow up to be.

Moving to a new school or sixth form is a challenging decision, there’s no doubt about that! Yet, whether the jump is from primary to secondary, or from GCSE’s to A-Level’s, we all understand how huge this change can seem; that’s why, here at Watford Girls, we make it our job to help you feel comfortable and involved in school life from your first day until your last. Our school community is vibrant, warm and welcoming, a place where you will make great friends, be free to express yourself and encourage one another to be your very best, which is what it really means to be a Watford Girl.

From our incredible facilities to our fantastic and committed teaching staff, who are always willing to help, our school ensures that each and every one of you receive many opportunities to grow and achieve your potential as the powerful women of the future. We also offer numerous sport, music and extra academic activities, so that whatever your passion, you will always have a chance to shine!

My journey through Watford Girls, both academic and personal, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life yet, and I can’t quite believe that in less than a year, I’ll be moving on to a whole new adventure. But I know I speak for every single student at this school when I say that that the range of opportunities that will be presented to you by Watford Girls will set you up for life, and that the lessons you learn and the friends you make will put you in the best possible position for success.

And maybe one day, when you’re reaching the end of this journey to begin a whole new one, then, just like me, you’ll realise that choosing Watford Girls was perhaps one of your best decisions yet.

Best wishes,
