Developing Leaders

Too few women are leaders – we aim to change that!

One aspect of TGGS that may distinguish us from other schools is our focus on the development of female leadership. We work really hard to nurture the kind of self-belief needed to be successful in today’s work place. This is achieved through our school ethos and curriculum, as well as the many opportunities that we provide for our students to undertake leadership roles.

Some of these opportunities include: joining the Head Girl Team – a pivotal role within school which develops students’ leadership and management skills; acting as Heads of House, promoting and encouraging a strong house culture throughout school; running the HUB scheme and leading and organising in-house academic and pastoral support for the lower years. Students are also able to work closely with Heads of Departments as Academic Ambassadors, promoting and supporting learning in their subjects. Within the wider community, students also lead the Junior League of Friends and a local Amnesty Group.  This list is not exhaustive of the activities that students can take part in, but provides an insight into the kind of opportunities that we make available to them.

We also run a highly successful Duke of Edinburgh programme and regularly enter teams in the annual Ten Tors Competition, encouraging leadership and resilience.

If our students have the skills to develop into the leaders of tomorrow, but lack the confidence to flourish, then we believe that taking on roles and responsibilities such as those mentioned above will help to change that.
