Wilmington Grammar School for Girls is one of Kent’s leading schools.
Our motto is the Pursuit of Excellence and we have a long record of academic success.
We are thrilled to congratulate one of our ex-students Georgina Campbell who left the school in 2010. On Sunday 10/05/15 we discovered that Georgina won the BAFTA Best Actress Award for her role in ‘Murdered by my Boyfriend’ a play about a victim of teenage domestic violence. Here she can be seen collecting her award.
I was also delighted to collect the SSAT Educational Outcome Award on Tuesday evening of this week in recognition of being in the top 10% of schools nationally for valued added progress. This is a great honour and is due to the hard work and determination of everyone involved in the school.
The staff at WGSG were this week showcasing the findings from their ‘Action Research Projects ’on Wednesday evening. Each member of staff has been involved in undertaking individual or group research to enhance the learning experience for our students and strive to help them attain even better results. It was lovely to see the findings form areas as diverse as evaluating the impact of 6th form mentors, to researching the impact of IT on learning; looking at the impact of using art therapy to address emotional difficulties to measuring the impact of visiting museums and theatres and a whole lot more. The desire to share ideas and strategies is a great strength of the school and definitely benefits the students.
On Friday this week it was lovely to see our Year 8 students dressed in their outdoor wear as they embarked on an adventure activity trip to Swattenden. A day of fun has been planned with team building events, including raft building, low and high ropes, zip wires etc. Don’t you wish you were 13 again?
A big thank you must go the PFA this week and to all who supported the Race Night last Saturday evening. It was such a fun evening which succeeded in raising nearly £900 towards The Woodgate Centre. We are determined to have our new Student Support facility open by September and every bit of additional funding helps us achieve this goal.
Best wishes for a lovely weekend and the weather is looking promising!
