Lily Parr was a footballing legend and the first woman to be inducted in to the English football hall of fame. She was an icon on and off the pitch.
“In 1920 a local newspaper wrote about this talented 14 year old: “There is probably no greater football prodigy in the whole country. Not only has she speed and excellent ball control, but her admirable physique enables her to brush off challenges from defenders who tackle her”.
Head of House: Miss Hallauer
“Lily Parr had to overcome challenges and was a role model. I am very proud to be the Head of House Parr because we are working together to achieve great results . Members of House Parr should aspire to work as a team, be kind, try new activities and never give up when facing challenges.”
House Captain: Jeny Thakkar
“In a time period where women were only seen as housewives, Lily Parr rose to prove the power of women and taught others that they have the potential to carry out tasks a man can and they too can support their family financially. As a House Captain of Parr, I have seen the students working together to face the challenges ahead of them, gaining confidence whilst enjoying themselves in the variety of activities present; highlighting Parr’s thoughts that continue to inspire the students to be the best girl they can be for themselves.”
