What Our Girls Say


Year 11, Co-Head Girl

Hello, my name is Melissa and I feel very blessed to be Co-Head Girl alongside Millie and overall being part of the student body and the Junior Leadership Team (the JLT) at Ricards Lodge.

I really look forward to working with teachers, this amazing group of girls and the other girls in this school to provide support and leadership.

At Ricards Lodge I've felt very encouraged to have made so many friendships. They have helped me come out of my shell and gain more confidence to put myself forward for opportunities such as this.

I also particularly enjoy history, business and dance as these are my strengths and I feel they enable me to have a balanced spread of subjects that I like and participate in. 

My aspirations for the future are to be able to get high grades in my GCSE’s and my A levels, and most importantly to go on study at university.

I also believe being part of this team will help me in terms of characteristics and the skills needed to be successful in the working environment, especially as one of my interests is to work with children to provide medical care, support and guidance.
