Welcome from the Principal

I'm Dorothy Trussell, Principal of Flixton Girls School, and I want to wish you a very warm welcome. I've been a part of FGS for almost two decades, and am absolutely thrilled and honoured to have been appointed as principal. I am so proud to have played my part, using the founding principles of ASPIRATION, EMPOWERMENT and EXCELLENCE, to help transform this school into the one that we are so proud of today and that truly sits at the heart of the community.

I made a commitment to the students, staff, parents/carers, governors and trustees to do my very best to make this good school even better. We are using the strength of our position as part of the Vantage Academy Trust to build on the strong foundations we have established which will take us to the next level.

We continue to eradicate inequalities and maximise academic outcomes whilst still growing the school's reputation and performance. If you choose FGS I know that, together with your support, your daughter's going to have the most amazing journey with us over the next seven years.

There is no limit to her potential here at FGS. We have a superb team of classroom-based staff, both teachers and learning support assistants, as well as an expert team of operational staff who will provide care and encouragement for her in addition to those inspirational learning experiences that are so important. I can guarantee that, working in partnership with you, we will inspire and empower her to become all that she can be.

I look forward to meeting both you and your daughter at some point in the near future.
