Each year the students and staff elect a Head Girl and prefect team. The Head Girl Team includes the Head Girl, two Deputy Head Girls and a team of Prefects. These students play an integral role in the running of the school working with younger students as well as organising and supporting school events. The Head Girl Team represents the school at both in school and out of school events. They are excellent ambassadors for the school.
Our Head Girl Team gives perspective on life at The Ladies’ College:
I came to The Ladies’ College from La Houguette Primary School, knowing very few people. Seven years later, I find myself Head Girl in an amazing year of girls I get on so well with.
I study French, German and History for my A Levels. My lessons are split evenly between Elizabeth and The Ladies’ College and all the teachers at both schools are very supportive and willing to help if you’re having any trouble. All of my classes are small, with two of my subjects only having classes of 3! The relationship that you can develop with your teachers and peers in these small groups is really unique and helpful, even if there is nowhere to hide when you don’t know the answer!
I believe that a really important part of Sixth Form is seizing all the opportunities given to you. I have travelled to Sri Lanka with an outside organisation, completed Management Shadowing, am in the process of an EPQ and have started working on my Gold Duke of Edinburgh, all just in my time at Sixth Form so far.
Being in the final year of school is quite surreal as I can very clearly remember my first day, and it really does not feel that long ago! I have made friends I will never forget and will take away amazing memories, even if school can be quite stressful at times! I have really enjoyed taking on more responsibility in the Sixth Form and I urge everyone to take advantage of their time at this school as it will be gone before you know it!

My journey at The Ladies’ College has been one of personal development and learning, in all ways imaginable. I arrived at this school a mouthy year 7 with more attitude than anyone could handle, and I am now a mouthy sixth former, still with a lot of attitude. The difference is, The Ladies’ College has directed me to use my voice in a positive way. Hoping to study Politics and International Conflict Studies at university, I hope to do just that. I am honoured to have been chosen as a Deputy Head Girl of this wonderful and inspiring school, with such individual girls and teachers. I have been given the responsibility that I needed, as an Editor of the Ilex Magazine and a prefect. I have been steered in the right direction. I hope every young woman is given the same opportunity to go to this school as I did, as it has shaped me into the woman I am today.

When I look at all the new Removes starting The Ladies’ College, I cannot believe that after 13 years at this school, I am now in my final year. I can still remember my first day, gazing in awe at the Prefect team and the Head Girl as we were called into Assembly. They seemed so mature and confident and I thought that I would never be like them. However, my time at College has taught me how to be just like them - to be resilient, to take full advantage of every opportunity, to develop a love of learning and, ultimately, to aim to be the best that I can be. My time in Sixth Form have been the best years of my life. There have been so many opportunities to try new things, from debating in mooting competitions, to organising the island’s fist Colour Run. I will be leaving, well equipped for any challenges ahead, with the most special memories that I will treasure forever.
