Welcome to Watford Grammar School for Girls.
Our school is home to a vibrant and diverse community, filled with ambitious and hardworking individuals. The friendly and inclusive atmosphere, alongside the genuine care and support of our teachers, makes Watford Girls a truly fantastic environment for academic development.
At WGGS, we strive to create a strong sense of community. The multitude of whole school charity events taking place throughout the school year, ranging from our Harvest celebrations through to frequent bake sales in the main hall, creates a unique interconnection between year groups, allowing for unlikely friendships to flourish. Through collaborating on shared events such as these, our school body is also able to raise money, and show compassion for others, helping us to fulfil two of our school’s new community values.
Some of my favourite memories at Watford Girls took place right at the start of my journey here, in year 7. I can still remember the excitement of dressing up with my new form on World Book Day, dancing at the Halloween disco and catapulting into a freezing cold pool on the first day of the year 7 activities trip. These individual, yet shared experiences, are part of what makes Watford Girls so special, as each year is filled with new and exciting opportunities.
Alongside the amazing extracurricular activities available outside of the classroom, the quality of teaching, and teacher support, at our school is exceptional.
No matter what your passion is, or where your interests lie, there will always be someone here who can stretch you academically and help you to achieve your aspirations.
If you choose to continue your journey here with us, then my main piece of advice for life at WGGS would be simply to say yes to every opportunity that comes your way. Watford Girls is one of the safest places to learn and grow as an individual; it has made me who I am today, and I am both proud and honoured to say that I will remain a Watford Girl for the rest of my life. Though joining a new school may seem daunting, through embracing life at Watford Girls, you will discover who you are and become the best version of yourself. I wish you the best of luck with everything, and hope that you enjoy your time at Watford Girls as much as I have.
