What Our Girls Say

Scarlett P

Year 11, Assistant Head Girl

As one of the new Assistant Head Girls at Ricards Lodge, I feel extremely fortunate to be selected in such an amazing role in our school. I hope it will enable me to contribute to our school and to make it the best environment for both students and teachers to succeed in.

By taking on the role as a member of the Junior Leadership Team, it has enabled me to develop my confidence and allow myself to express and put forward the thoughts and ideas of students from all years.

As a Ricards student, I was given the amazing chance to be a ball girl for the Wimbledon 2019 Championships. It was an experience that I will never forget and gives me such pride.

Being a ball-girl at the Championships displays one of the many opportunities I have been rewarded with here at Ricards and truly demonstrates the hard-working attitudes of the students here at Ricards.

In my free time, on the other hand, and when I am not in meetings with my fellow JLT teammates or rolling balls, I take great joy in drama as well as spending time with family and friends. I find that it is important to take a break from the pressures of school which is why I enjoy being able to relax alongside the ones I love, this includes exploring the city with friends and of course shopping!

To me, however, one of the best aspects of attending Ricards is the loving environment I am welcomed into every morning where I have made life long friends who have made my Ricards Lodge experience a thrilling one! without the support from friends and family, I may not have written this and given this role as Assistant Head Girl and I am therefore very grateful for every teacher, student as well as my parents, who have supported and helped me along through my secondary school experience.

Although my high school experience is coming to a gradual end, I am grateful that I have such an important position within our school community which I will definitely not take for granted!
