Meet our Head Girl Team

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:


"My position as Head Girl of The Ladies’ College fills me with a sense of deep pride in our amazing school and community. Since joining in 2017, I have had access to a multitude of opportunities and ways to develop myself both academically and mentally. In such a dynamic society, our school both embraces change and upholds our prized traditions. It has been a privilege to grow up surrounded by a wealth of role-models; whether that be the older girls who seemed so wise to my remove-self, or the fabulous teachers whose dedication is second to none.

My advice to students, both older and younger, is to always grasp every opportunity with both hands. Our school offers a variety of co-curriculars from debating and swimming to science and book clubs. Before you know it, you are in your last year at Ladies’ wishing you could turn back time. It’s these opportunities that build up our sense of character and community within our college.

Last year, events surrounding the 150th anniversary of the founding of our school were symbolic moments to witness as a student. It was a celebration of all that has been and all that is yet to come. The Ladies’ College was not founded by passive, well-behaved women, but by women that spoke up and demanded their voices to be heard. These values have stayed strong as young women we are encouraged to be confident in our own abilities and to know the value of our ideas and voices."

"I had no idea what I expected when I joined The Ladies' College Sixth Form in September 2022, coming from a state's school- St Sampson's High of which I am immensely proud of- but I suppose in retrospect I was scared of not fitting in with any cliques that might be there. But what I definitely had not expected was the wonderful uniqueness of everyone that resulted in this lovely mish-mosh of talented people in a supportive community that is the Sixth Form.

Taking on a role of responsibility such as Deputy Head Girl is a huge honour to represent not only the current the school, but also the alumni and students to come- displaying the true inclusiveness, and recognition of hard work and unbiased opportunities offered by the Ladies' College, and I can only try to put into words how beneficial I think it is being part of single-sex education- particularly coming from a co-ed school.

My goal is to create a non-competitive environment for the girls to express themselves freely through Art, Music, Dance and Drama- which I plan to introduce through MADD night. An idea taken directly from the inspirational Creative department at SSHS, but with an added "D" for Dance, to incorporate the many gifted dancers we have at the Ladies' College, MADD night aims to give the girls a chance to showcase their talent, without the pressure of having to "win". There are countless creative opportunities waiting for the girls at College, such as the annual play or musical that the performing arts departments put on, the choirs and music lessons, art clubs and so on.

By the end of my year as a deputy head girl, I hope I will have played a part in achieving an even greater sense of community at college through bringing people together to celebrate their individuality through the arts. I believe the benefits of this will last long after students have left college, as the confidence, self-esteem, and social skills which comes from expressing yourself through the arts will stay with you for life."

"Having joined The Ladies’ College in Year 7 I have seen many years of Head Girl teams and admired each one of them and the impact that they have had on our school community. As Deputy Head Girl, I am proud that I now have the opportunity to continue their legacy, serving as the encouraging role model that I have looked up to for so many years. I cannot envisage a more rewarding or worthwhile challenge to conclude my final year at The Ladies’ College.

Taking part in extra curricular activities has really been at the core of my growth within the college. I have been part of many clubs from Senior Motet Choir to Debate Club, which I am leading this year. I have also represented the college in the Youth States and Youth Forum, which I chaired for 2 years. This amazing opportunity provided to me by the school has enabled me to become a Lieutenant-Governor's Cadet, an experience which I will remember forever. I would encourage each student to fully immerse themselves in college life by exploring the wide range of extra-curricular activities the school has to offer and take advantage of all the amazing opportunities that The Ladies’ College provides us with. This will help students grow in confidence and develop their talents to their full potential in a motivating and uplifting environment.

I look forward to continuing to develop the Charter of Respect initiative as well as updating students on current affairs, something which I believe is crucial to our education. As I conclude my final academic year at The Ladies’ College, a year filled with challenges and opportunities, I look forwarding to giving back to the school as it has really helped me grow into who I am today."
