Headteacher’s Welcome

Quality Learning, Quality Teaching, Quality Environment

‘Articulate, questioning, tolerant and independent young women’

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. Importantly, we are specialists in girls’ education, providing a nurturing, supportive and challenging environment where girls excel. 

 At our school, traditional values meet with modern, innovative approaches to learning. We are a forward-thinking school that has invested considerably in new technology, ensuring that when they leave us, our pupils are fully equipped for the future. However, equally important are the qualities we instil in the girls. We have developed an environment that supports them as individuals, enabling them to progress to the next stage of their life equipped with a sense of achievement, maturity and self-confidence.

We also want pupils to leave us with wonderful memories and our extensive range of additional opportunities, both within and outside the classroom, allows girls to develop their individual characters and talents and to fulfil their dreams and aspirations.

As every Headteacher will tell you, a prospectus can give only a brief glimpse of school life and that you cannot fully appreciate a school until you visit it during a normal day. This is particularly true of our school, where visitors always comment on the friendly and happy atmosphere. Indeed, upon my own first visit, I was immediately impressed by its warmth and concern for the individual. For this reason, I would urge you to visit us during a working day to experience, first-hand, the ethos of our school.

I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of a school with a proud past and such a promising future. I look forward to welcoming you.
