Head Boy and Head Girl appointments for 2020-21

Congratulations to Year 12 pupils, Luke and Deya who have been appointed the prestigious titles of Head Boy and Head Girl for the next academic year. 

Luke comments: “I’m extremely honoured to have been given the role of head boy." Deya would like to "Thank you for this opportunity", both students agree that they are looking forward to taking on their new roles as head boy and girl when we come back in September!" 

This year we had such strong candidates who each have unprecedented talent so to reflect this we have also made the decision to appoint a Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl. Congratulations to William and Jona.

Jona comments: "As deputy, I am looking forward to working with the senior leaders of this school and especially the head girl and boy as together we will work together to show how important this academy is to us." Will adds: "I am looking forward to being a part of the leadership group next year, and hopefully to make a difference in the school with the help of all our students."

All four pupils were awarded their roles after undergoing a rigorous application process, including virtual hustings and interviews with Mr Astin, Mr Carey, Mr Lewis and Mrs Harrison. All students performed amazingly throughout the entire process. 

We are confident that they will ensure that the positive changes which they spoke so passionately about in their applications and in the interview, process will be implemented. Well done to you all!
