Walthamstow School for Girls Ofsted Outstanding Provider


We understand the importance of building the highest aspirations in our young people.  We work hard to provide them with all of the necessary information needed to make well informed decisions about the future and to break stereotypes and barriers.

Our named careers Lead for the school is Ms Desbenoit, Y10 Student Progress Lead.

WSFG have bought into an incredibly valuable tool called ‘Start’ by U-Explore.  This is a one stop careers advice station.  It is your daughter’s tool to access information on colleges, universities, careers and qualifications.  Students can keep their profile up to date and get advice on their next steps. They can add activities to their ‘locker’ to build a portfolio which can support with CV writing, college and job applications.  Students’ logins will stay in place even once they have left WSFG provided we are still with ‘Start’.  Ask your daughter to show you this tool at home and encourage her to update it regularly.
