Testimonials

I introduced Girls on Board to staff yesterday and we had an overwhelmingly positive response. I had been apprehensive about what they may think but many people emailed afterwards saying what a positive approach it is and that they think it’s a great idea.

Head of Year

“One of the immediate effects of the first Girls on Board session was that staff realised that they could and should back off from the girls, saving time and energy, but also knowing that they were actually doing the right thing.”

Headteacher, mixed all-through school

“You have inspired me to take a fresh approach, and a step back from trying to unpick the minutiae of Snapchat messages and so on. Putting the onus on the girls themselves to consider their role in the dynamic of a falling-out absolutely resonates with me.”

Deputy Head

“It is a good understanding of how girls work but it is of more use to the adults than the girls because the girls already know this.”

Year 10 Girl

‘I think Girls on Board is effective especially because it makes us realise we are all going through the same situation.’

Year 9 Girl

“Although Girls on Board cannot stop arguments completely, it has definitely helped reduce them and helped us to understand how our relationships work.”

Year 10 Girl

‘We had feedback from a Year 6 mother whose daughter had told her that it was the most useful talk about friendships that she had ever had.’
