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:
"Since joining the Ladies’ College in 2017, there has not been a day in which I do not feel welcomed and supported in the college community. It is a huge honour to be Head Girl, and I am extremely excited to work with the other senior prefects to have an impactful and meaningful year. The Ladies’ College is truly special, and as we approach the commemoration of 150 years since the opening of the college, I am reflecting on the incredible women that have been to the Ladies’ College and how lucky I am to be a member of a community steeped in such rich history. The Ladies’ College experience is one like no other and along with fabulous academics there are extensive programs of extra curricular activities to support every girl’s learning. From house events to high level sport, there really is something for everyone to get involved in.
The opportunities in college are endless and I urge any current or prospective student to take these opportunities with open arms. Time really does fly and before you know it you will be standing in the foyer on the first day of your last year! I will cherish my time at the Ladies’ College for the rest of my life, and I can’t wait for what will be an incredibly rewarding year."

"I feel so honoured to have been awarded the role of Deputy Head Girl this year and am so grateful to be able to give back to the school after everything it has given me.
Not only does The Ladies’ College provide an excellent education, it also offers so many opportunities: from extracurricular activities such as music, drama, sport and art; to enrichment experiences, like MOOT, TEFL, Work Experience, Young Enterprise, Duke of Edinburgh scheme; and so many more. These give each student the tools to continue on to achieve great things!
The main piece of advice I would give to members of the lower years and anyone planning on joining the Ladies’ College would be: to immerse yourself into all the opportunities given; take advantage of the remarkable support that each member of staff offers; and make the most of your time at the Ladies’ College as it will fly by.
When students leave they have the opportunity to join the Ladies’ College Guild where they can maintain the amazing relationships formed throughout their time here, with both the school and friends."
- Rachel (Deputy Head Girl, 2021-22)
"As I embark on my final year as Deputy Head Girl of The Ladies’ College, I am driven by excitement and caution, but primarily with the ambition to succeed and have fun along the way. I am honoured and beyond proud to have been awarded this role and have the opportunity to leave behind a legacy that represents all the incredible values that the school has taught me over the past six years and continues to in my final year. It feels like only yesterday I was stood, staring up at our school, a stranger to most of the teachers and my peers, but I was soon swept up and embraced by the community that is the heart of the school. The opportunities I have been presented with over the years, from hockey tours to Eisteddfod performances has been numerous and have always been focused around having fun and including all, whilst highlighting how important it is to have the drive to perform your best. If I had one piece of advice for a pupil lower down the school, or embarking on their first year, it would be, regardless of how much experience you have, immerse yourself in every opportunity that you are presented with, because the support that you will receive from the staff is unmatched and I will forever be grateful for the support I have received so far."
