Academic Excellence

Individual academic excellence is at the heart of our educational approach. We believe that educational development is not simply confined to the classroom or laboratory, but can be found in the art rooms, drama studios, music rooms, sports fields, or through DofE and our wider co-curricular program. We go beyond the narrow confines of exam specifications, giving a unique, all round education that inspires our pupils to discover who they are.

Our exam results are impressive but our focus is also on allowing our pupils to truly reach their potential by encouraging each child to be part of our community and uncover their passions and interests.





Enrichment Programme lecture series inspires, educates and motivates pupils

Our Enrichment Programme brought over 30 speakers to the School last year, many of whom are leaders in their field. The aim of the lecture series is to encourage pupils out of their comfort zone and allow them to get an insight into a variety of experiences – and that has certainly been achieved this year. Speakers ranged from ex-England cricket and rugby international Alistair Hignall to Holocaust survivor Rudi Oppenheimer, along with lawyers, police officers, psychologists, physicists, mathematicians and gamers, amongst others, all at the top end of their game.

Enrichment at WGS


Our Scholarship programs enable children who excel either academically or across a breadth of areas, to experience all that the School has to offer and fulfil their potential. We offer Academic Scholarships or All Rounder Scholarships for entry into Year 7, 9 and 6th Form.
