Every Year 12 student (and many Year 13s) undertake a Hitchin Girls’ School Community Ambassador role to support the learning and well-being of others either here at HGS, in our family of primary schools or in the wider community. This programme equips our students with excellent life skills that will support their UCAS or job applications.
Feedback on the Ambassador Programme
The ambassador’s programme allows us to work with pupils in smaller groups and the students who join us can give pupils that little bit of extra attention which is often not possible for a class teacher in a busy classroom.'

'Having worked with the Ambassadors from Hitchin Girls' School for many years, and in different schools, I am always impressed with the quality and enthusiasm of the girls who take part in the scheme. They are always very professional in their approach and recognise the need to be flexible in a primary school setting.
Last year we had some very able mathematicians who worked with a more able group of Year 6s as part of our Gifted and Talented programme and the feedback from the teachers and pupils was always exceptionally positive. More recently, we worked with some language students who came down to support our International Week. Since then we have just received notice that we have been received the International School Accreditation and are looking forward to working with more language ambassadors this academic year.
I will always look to engage with the Girls' School and their Ambassador programme as it always adds value to the work we do in school.'
