I’m Daisy Dean, the current head girl and I have been a proud Portland Place student since 2008, I was in Year 7 and I am now in Year 13 (11 and now nearly 18!) so PPS is truly a family to me.
As a sixth form group we are really very close, our Yr12 and Yr13 have already bonded and become a group and
the atmosphere within the common room is warm and happy. This is importantbecause the friendships we build over these crucial A level years are fundamental in helping you develop, providing support when the exam pressure
kicks in and hopefully keeping a smile on your face.
Portland Place Sixth Form is a fresh start. We have many students starting at PPS, whilst others have been at
the school since Year 7. Regardless of this, Sixth Form is a complete clean slate with new subjects and exciting opportunities.
Finally, we also have a fabulous new team of PPS Prefects, who have been handpicked and elected by the students
themselves in a democratic process. As a prefect you have the ability to meet weekly and discuss any changes that you would like to implement, ranging from transforming the format of the Common Room, sorting out accessible Wifi codes
and in previous years buying fridges, microwaves and fruit blenders. Most importantly as a prefect you get to voice your opinion on matters that really affect you in day to day school life.
I’d like to wish everyone in the Sixth Form a happy and successful
start to the school year!
