After a huge amount of hard-work and dedication from students and staff, Year 11 finally have reached the end of their GCSE exams. This Tuesday, the year group were invited back into school for the traditional shirt signing and leaver’s assembly. It was a fantastic morning that gave the girls the opportunity to say goodbye to staff and reflect on their time at Penwortham Girls’ and the journey they’ve been on. In our assembly, we looked back at the last five years and some of the brilliant memories they’ve made. My hope is that as well as an exceptional set of GCSE grades, the girls will be leaving with a strong set of values and enduring friendships that will stay with them into their adult life.
As a school we’re incredibly proud of the girls for the determined attitude and fantastic work-ethic with which they approached these exams, which I’m sure will be reflected when they get their results in August. I would also like to add my thanks for all the invaluable support from parents and carers in encouraging, guiding and cajoling the girls throughout their time at the school.
It’s been a pleasure supporting this group for the past four years and I wish the Class of 2023 the best of luck in the next step on their journeys.
Head of Year 11
