At the start of the new academic year, we are delighted to welcome our new Head Girl team at the prep school into their leadership roles.
Congratulations go to our Head Girl, Evie, and her deputies Holly, Harriet and Charley. Each member of the team has a specialist role and we are very much looking forward to seeing how they respond to their responsibilities.
The Head Girl team play a vital part in the life of the prep school, leading fresh initiatives and playing a key role in school events. The application process for Head Girl is an extensive one and each year the girls never fail to impress on how they rise to the challenge. Applications are invited and submitted to the Headmaster, Mr Marshallsay. The girls are then asked to create a short video explaining why they should be considered as the next Head Girl. Staff and pupils view the videos and cast their votes. All aspects of the selection process are considered and, finally, the Head Girl and her team are selected.
Headmaster, Mr Marshallsay, commented ‘The girls are very responsible and take the whole selection process seriously. It is always a delight to receive the applications for Head Girl and we are very much looking forward to seeing how the new team develop their roles this year’.
Meet the Head Girl Team
Head Girl – Evie (front of main picture)
My name is Evie and I am delighted to be appointed as Head Girl for this year. I have been at Portsmouth High School since I was three years old and it is a huge part of my life, supporting me both academically and emotionally.
I enjoy a range of clubs and opportunities that our school has to offer including yoga, climbing and taekwondo and this year in Year 6, lessons in Latin and Mandarin. I am passionate about the environment and love the outdoor space at the prep school.
I look forward to working with the rest of the Head Girl team and developing our ideas together. I am pleased that I have been given the opportunity to give back to PHS, a school that has given me so much.
