West Midlands State Secondary School of the Year


We are celebrating being awarded the Sunday Times West Midlands State Secondary School of the year award and will be featured in this weekend’s publication.


Wolverhampton Girls’ High School which has the distinction of being named The Sunday Times West Midlands State Secondary School of the Year.


“To achieve a five point percentage rise in the number of A*, A and B grades for A-levels this year, just as the examinations get considerably tougher, is an outstanding achievement for which pupils and their teachers should take huge credit.


“However, education at Wolverhampton Girls’ High is about much more than just examination success. Girls are encouraged to participate and succeed in a huge number of activities beyond the classroom and they thrive in a caring and nurturing environment.”


It is an honour to receive this award and to be selected out of the hundreds of secondary schools across the West Midlands.


This award recognises academic excellence and the fantastic achievements of our students at GCSE and A Level but it goes far beyond these performance measures.  The progress of our students is to be celebrated alongside the well rounded contributions our girls make to our community and beyond and the way in which they seize so many different opportunities both within and outside the classroom.  These experiences help them to grow into happy, confident and resilient young women who achieve fantastic outcomes in all respects.  Well done everyone this is wonderful recognition of our school and is testament to the hardworking approach of our girls, the dedication of our staff and the support and encouragement from parents.


Thank you.
