Welcome to Walderslade Girls’ School, a medium sized, friendly and family oriented all-girls High School located in the Medway town of Chatham. We are a Specialist College for the Arts and place great emphasis on creative teaching to inspire our pupils’ learning across the curriculum. We value creative subjects within our specialism which includes fine art, textiles, photography, sculpture, drama, dance, music and musical theatre, alongside a full and diverse academic curriculum. We cater for girls of all abilities from the most able to those who perhaps struggle with aspects of their learning. We are a fully inclusive school where every child is valued and known as an individual and where every child is viewed as unique and special with talents and gifts of their own; strengths are identified and nurtured so that our girls blossom and develop into confident and successful young women.
I am very proud to lead such a wonderful community of pupils and dedicated highly qualified staff, many of whom are long serving to the school. There is something very special about the atmosphere that pervades the school and that strikes so many people when they come to visit. It is quite indescribable but leaves one with a sense of warmth, calmness, a quiet sense of purpose and, above all, togetherness. I warmly invite you to come and visit us to experience this for yourself.
Mr Reese, Acting Headteacher
