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 (1.6 miles as of 2015) A small number of spaces are reserved for students outside of the catchment area, which are called governess places. These are generally only given to students with high marks in the 11+. The current head mistress is Mrs Linda Wybar.
