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.
For all years the uniform consists of a pleated tartan skirt, white blouse, with a blue TWGGS logo in the collar and navy jumper with a gold TWGGS logo, there is also an optional summer uniform in the form of a thin cotton tartan dress. Years 10 and 11 can also wear a straight skirt with a pleat in the back. For years 12 and 13 uniform is not necessary.
