Quality of Education
WHGS is committed to ensuring that all students, irrespective of who they are or what needs they may have, master the knowledge, understanding and skills to be successful. We judge every moment of learning as precious and so our lessons are expertly planned and taught by specialist teachers who aim to maximise every minute and encourage everyone to work to the best of their ability.
To this end, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our curriculum is designed to meet the high aspirations of our learners and to support everyone to sustain the behaviour for learning habits that ensure that teachers can teach, and students can learn. To this end, we have systems in place that build upon our values of Ambition, Compassion and Respect and give everyone in our learning community the greatest chance of success.
The ultimate aim of the curriculum is to equip pupils for the next stage of their education, employment or training and develop caring and respectful global citizens who will use their learning to become the very best that they can be and open the doors to a brighter future.

Personal Development, Behaviour and Attitudes
The school provides comprehensive support, working with external partners to ensure all students have a wealth of opportunities for personal development, with a focus on nurturing positive behaviours and attitudes to learning.
The school prides itself on building a culture of mutual respect with students and at the core of this work is the school's Respect Charter, Compassion Charter and Ambition Charter. These Charters are living and breathing documents that shape positive conversations, relationships, values and attitudes at the school.
The express aim is to ensure our students leave the school with values and attitudes, in line with British Values, in order to play a positive and productive role in society.
