An overwhelming number of Year 11 Prefect Students applied for the coveted role of Head Student, all of whom should be very proud of their applications. From this, a shortlist of students were then invited to attend an interview with their Year Lead and members of the Senior Leadership Team, including Mr Hind, Executive Deputy Headteacher and Miss Belcher, Deputy Headteacher. All eight students that were interviewed presented their ideas and characters fantastically, demonstrating both their enthusiasm for their studies and their confidence in supporting their peers. After lengthy discussion, the difficult decision was made and the following candidates were successful: Ben; Keira; Callum and Ana Clara and we would like to pass on a huge congratulations to these students.
All of the Head Students will be introducing themselves in assemblies in the new term, where they will also be discussing quotes that have inspired them:
- Ben Baumber: “If you believe you can, you’re halfway there.”
- Keira Carlton: “Strive for progress, not perfection.”
- Callum Lilley: “Believing in yourself is the first secret on the journey of being successful.”
- Ana Clara Souza: “You can steer yourself in any direction you choose” (Dr Seuss)
