Welcome to South Wilts Grammar School for Girls

South Wilts provides high quality education and is one of the top schools in the country. Academic achievement at South Wilts is excellent with outstanding examination results across all key stages. The school has over 1000 students, including over 376 students in the sixth form.

We not only focus on academic excellence but help the girls to become independent learners and young leaders. Our aim is to develop self-discipline, a feeling of self-worth, confidence in expressing themselves and a sense of responsibility towards our local community and wider society. We encourage participation in a wide range of activities outside the classroom with many enrichment opportunities across all subject areas, including international links.

The Ofsted inspection in October 2007 summarises the best aspects of the school. “This is an outstanding school in all respects. It is held in high regard by the vast majority of its students and their parents and rightly so. One parent accurately commented, “South Wilts is a wonderful school. The children are happy, hardworking and respectful. The staff certainly want the best from the children and will not accept second best”. “Second best” is not in the lexicon of this school, where excellence pervades all aspects of its work”.

The school became a New Academy in January 2011 and is also a member of the South West Academic Trust, which includes seven other selective schools in the South West and the University of Exeter.

This is a forward thinking school and has benefited from a number of building programmes in recent years providing first class facilities including outstanding ICT provision. The school's focus is always on teaching and learning and staff work hard to ensure that all students fulfil their potential in a supportive and friendly environment.
