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.

Two former pupils from PGHS are on the BBC's Women's Top 100 Power List: Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell and Dame Sue Ion who also feature on our Alumni Wall. We are the only state school in England to have two people on the list!
Dame Sue Ion recently came back to visit Penwortham Girls' High School to chat about School life and how it shaped her career.
Dame Nancy Rothwell was also interviewed by BBC Radio 4 programme 'The Life Scientific'.
