“As always, at this time of year, I would like to say what an absolute privilege it is to work with such a professional and committed teaching and associate staff. They have, as ever, been extremely generous in the giving of their time so that our students have been well prepared for their final exams. I have also been very impressed with the tremendous work ethic and behaviour of our students.”

Chairman of governors Lorimer Russell-Hayes, added: “What sets Penwortham Girls’ apart from many other schools is the ethos of high expectations that permeates throughout everything we try to do here.
