Penwortham Girls’ High School enjoys a unique status, as the only non-selective, non-fee paying girls’ school in Lancashire. We welcome girls of all abilities, interests and aptitudes, and pride ourselves on our long-standing reputation for academic success. We are a successful school because we have high expectations, promote learning for its own sake and provide every opportunity for personal growth and development.
There has already been much to celebrate at Penwortham Girls’ High School in 2014, in this its Diamond Jubilee year. However, being graded Outstanding in a recent OFSTED inspection has really made the year a special one for the school, and is described as a ‘crowning achievement’ by Headteacher, Karen Pomeroy. The glowing report graded the school as Outstanding in every category, commenting on the ‘consistently high quality’ of teaching whilst noting that ‘staff are as concerned for students’ personal well-being as they are about their academic success.
