Girls on Board
Girls on Board is an approach which helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognise that they are usually the only ones who can. By empowering girls to find their own solutions, parents need worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum, and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier.
We are proud to be amongst over 200 schools across the UK who have adopted this approach and are now supporting thousands of girls in their friendships. Since September 2022, all staff and students at Highsted have been trained in the Girls on Board approach and recent student surveys suggest that the programme is supporting them in their relationships. As a Girls on Board Champion School, we want our students to feel empowered to navigate these relationships with confidence and success.
