Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School (TWGGS), established in 1905, is an all female selective school in Royal Tunbridge Wells, a town in Kent, England. The "eleven plus" examination represents the main entrance criterion, along with residence within the catchment area (two miles as of 2007; a small number of spaces are reserved for students outside of the catchment area). The current head mistress is Mrs Linda Wybar.

Uniform[edit]

The uniform consists of a pleated tartan skirt, white blouse, matching tartan tie and navy jumper with a gold TWGGS logo (the same as the school's emblem).[1] This uniform was brought in during 1997, with the Year Seven level being the first class to wear it. A summer uniform was added in the form of a thin cotton tartan dress. As of 2013 a white, open-neck blouse with a navy TWGGS logo was added with a straight, tartan skirt for Year 10. The Sixth Form do not wear a uniform.

About the school[edit]
