What Our Girls Say


Year 11, Deputy Head Girl

Hello, my name is Milly and I’m one of two deputy head girls at Ricards. Having this role in the school really makes me feel more engaged and involved with the whole teacher-student community.

Being part of the Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is a lot of fun. Discussing and making decisions with the staff and students encourages me to make even more valuable contributions to the school.

Aside from my deputy head girl commitments, I like to spend time with my friends. I really enjoy socialising and involving myself in group activities, especially sport. Some of my favourite things to do are relax in parks and find new places in London to explore alongside reading and drawing.

Though school is very busy, it’s always important to look after yourself so I try my best to do the things I enjoy as much as possible. I’m grateful for this time I’m able to have for myself but equally so for the time I have at school to learn and contribute to classes.

Being at Ricards has really helped me discover more about myself and has taught me valuable life skills that I know I will use in the long-term; let’s not forget the friends I have made in my school career as well!

Again I fell honoured to have this position in the school and I hope I can use it to my advantage work with the team in order to develop the school as much as we can.
