New Intake 2020
A very warm welcome to Walderslade Girls’ School! This section of our website is dedicated to the students and their parents/carers who are joining us in September 2020. Please take some time to have a look around and explore the different sections. If you are working on your Transition Activity Booklet, the Virtual Tour is a must see!
As you know we are not in a position to confirm when we are re-opening WGS at the moment, however we are working really hard to ensure that your transition from Primary to Secondary school is as special and supported as it can possibly be.
We have set up a specific e-mail, WGSnewintake@sflt.org.uk just for the new intake students, can parents/carers please use this to share any successes and if you have any questions or concerns. Additionally, please follow us on Face Book and Twitter @WaldersladeGS, to get a flavour of who we are as a school and as part of the Skills for Life Trust family. We really would love to hear from you!
We are really excited to meet all of the new WGS students and know that together we are planning for a really bright future.
Reassurance about not sitting SATS or completing Year 6
We understand that many of you will be concerned about not having finished Year 6 and will be worried about not sitting your SATs. We also appreciate that you will have missed out on saying goodbye to your teachers and friends. Please trust us, we are working behind the scenes and speaking to your Year 6 teachers to find out who you are, what you like and how you have been progressing academically this year. There will be plenty of time to assess your levels later in the academic year and ensure that you get all the support and challenge you need to be your very best. At WGS you will be placed in a mixed ability class and your teachers will quickly get to know you and make sure you are excited by your learning and making excellent progress for you!
We have an excellent Year 7 pastoral team, led by Mrs Simm, who are well aware of the challenges this current climate has presented and are busy getting ready to support you.
We will do our utmost and go above and beyond to make sure that you feel settled and happy at WGS.
