Our students are encouraged to become young, aspirational women as part of the school ethos. Within lessons, students are not only shown how to aspire beyond their target grades academically, but also how to develop their individual talents.

Through whole school, year and house assemblies, all students are shown that any personal goal is possible as a young woman in the twenty-first century. International Women’s Day is celebrated every March and achievements of women through the ages are explored. There are a wide range of achievements celebrated; from women in the field of science to business entrepreneurs. Recognition is given to positive female role models in our present global community who inspire through their work.

Walderslade Girls’ School encourages and develops leadership skills. Positions of responsibility are offered and recognised through our Year 11 student prefect team and senior leaders in the 6th form.

Several of our girls have won prizes for public speaking and debating, and have also been chosen to work with our local MP in the Houses of Parliament.

With a minimum standard of excellence, our girls are aiming high, and will continue to form the next generation of professional and influential young women. The strong ethos of traditional values within the school enables students to feel confident, self-assured, motivational and inspired to reach their goals in life – whatever they may be.
