About Walderslade Girls' School

Walderslade Girls’ School is a mainstream, state-academy, non-denominational, secondary school for girls aged 11-18.

We are committed to providing exceptional educational opportunities for girls and take pride in the strong, educated, confident young women they become. We are also a member of The Skills for Life Trust, which ensures that we have the resources, expertise and support to make our commitment a reality for our students and ensures we keep striving for excellence.

The school is fully inclusive and every child is valued and known as an individual.


Walderslade Girls’ School is located in Walderslade, which is one of the villages in the Medway towns in South East England. Medway has excellent transport links and is only 30 miles from London.   High speed trains link Medway to London in just 35 minutes.

Continuing Professional Development

We take a bespoke approach to our staff development. We don’t believe that “one size fits all”. We understand that each member of staff requires support that meets their needs and is impactful on their practise as a teacher.   As well as timely advice, we offer a wide range of development opportunities and training pathways delivered in a variety of ways.

Meeting the needs of each career stage is important to keep our staff engaged and motivated towards reaching the next steps in their development.

Our weekly Development Meetings ensure that time is properly allocated for staff to stay current in a constantly changing educational landscape.


We have a vision that children in our academies will learn ‘Skills for Life’ which is our vision for the future of the Trust. By this we mean that in addition to being taught everything which children need to learn in school, our children will also be taught life skills such as cooking, speaking in public, answering the telephone etc. which will help them to stand out and ultimately become more confident adults when that time comes.

To further help them in their journey to adulthood, the children are regularly exposed to careers assemblies so that at an early stage, they are able to see what future opportunities are out there for them.
