Welcome to Watford Grammar School for Girls. 6 years ago I was in the exact same position as you; I felt nervous, uncertain, and afraid of joining a new school full of new people. I know it can seem pretty daunting, right? One minute you’re the oldest year group in a school and the next, you find yourselves the youngest and in unfamiliar territory however let me reassure you, within my first week here at Watford Grammar School for Girls, I felt at home and I’m certain you will too!

Here at Watford Girls, we aim to develop young students like yourselves, into leaders, innovators and drivers of change and the incredible teaching staff will always be there to support you in taking this next step forward. Coming to this school will allow you to explore your interests and ambitions, through the multitude of extra-curricular activities we provide, and nurture them so that you can grow into a unique and well-versed individual full of potential.

There’s something special about Watford Girls; I can genuinely say the warm and welcoming atmosphere I experienced when I first joined has stayed with me to this day, and the support network amongst students and teachers is truly exceptional.

Being a Watford Girl has filled me with pride due to the overwhelming sense of community at the heart of our school; the enthusiasm is infectious and I’m sure it will spread to you too.
