My name is Olivia and I’m proud to represent Penwortham Girls’ High School as Head Girl. Joining Penwortham Girls’ in Year 7 and knowing no one, was extremely daunting, however, the warm and welcoming atmosphere provided by all staff and students allowed me to settle in instantly and have an amazing experience at this outstanding school. Our core values play a huge part in every school day, driving us to succeed both academically and personally. PGHS is also passionate about listening to the pupil voice, ensuring all students can have an impact on their school community. Finally, Penwortham Girls’ always motivate the students to fulfil their potential, helping them to become “articulate, questioning, tolerant and independent women for the future”.
Hello, my name is Lola and I have just been given the honour of becoming the new Deputy Head Girl at Penwortham Girls’ High School. Many girls in their transition from primary to secondary feel nervous and anxious to take on this big step, but I didn’t feel those nerves and instead, all I felt was excitement. I couldn’t wait to become a part of the schools friendly and safe environment and finally become a PGHS student. I have never experienced a more welcoming environment. The school has really helped me change from a shy little year 7 to a confident and enthusiastic student. I feel honoured to represent such an outstanding school. It’s a school where teachers are always willing to help and encourage you to be the best version of yourself and push you to exceed not only academically, but personally too. It is a school where you are free to be your true self and a community where it is impossible to not make friends. The school offers many opportunities for all students and these opportunities really allow students to become articulate, tolerant, independent, and questioning young women for the future. As my role as Deputy Head Girl, I hope to be a role model to the younger students and be the bridge between students and staff. I wish to communicate ideas from the students to teachers and really expand on the school’s pupil voice. I’m looking forward to getting to know the new year 7s and the older students too. Hearing their new suggestions for the school, I will always be willing to help. I have fully enjoyed every minute of my time at PGHS and I hope to spread positivity around the school, ensuring everybody also enjoys their time here at PGHS.
