Windsor Girls' School (WGS) is a state secondary school for girls aged 13-18 in Windsor, Berkshire, England. While most other schools in Berkshire operate on a two-tier system with pupils entering secondary school at age 11, the local LEA uses the three-tier system, hence the 13+ entry age. It previously held Business & Enterprise specialist status and was rated "good, with outstanding features" by Ofsted inspectors in 2010. In 2014, the school was rated outstanding. It is not to be confused with a predecessor school of Windsor School in Germany.
WGS was originally Windsor County Girls' School, an independent school, during the inter-war period and Windsor County Grammar School for Girls during the era of the tripartite system. It turned comprehensive during the 1970s when the system was abolished.
