Cross Trust More Able Girls’ Project

Academically gifted girls aged 9 to 17 attended the launch of a Trust-wide project on Thursday 23 January, aimed at developing the skills needed to be successful as future leaders. Forty-four students from Foxborough Primary School, Upton Court Grammar School and Trevelyan Middle School, part of the Pioneer Educational Trust, engaged in team building exercises and studied biographies of female role models from recent history.

The project, aimed at enhancing “LORIC skills” (Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication) in high achieving students from across the Trust, coincides with 100 years since women were granted the right to vote in the UK. Girls looked at the lives of Emmeline Pankhurst, leader of the British Suffragette movement who campaigned to give women equal status in society, Rosa Parks, an African American woman who paved the way for racial equality in America, Nobel Laureate Malala Yousifzai who continued to fight for equal rights in education for women in Pakistan despite being injured by terrorists, as well as other notable women that shaped modern society.

The girls will be attending visits to the Houses of Parliament and the London Inns of Courts watching female role models in action in the next few weeks, as well as launching their own campaign in the summer, with the expectation of making a difference to addressing a real-world issue faced by modern society.

CEO of Pioneer Educational Trust, Mercedes Hernandez Estrada, said “This project allowed students from our three schools to learn working together and to become empowered to face the future with confidence."
