The Head Boy and Girl of the school and their Deputies are responsible for supporting Leadership Team in being ambassadors for the school. They are the ultimate role models for all other pupils in the school. Duties of the Head Boy and Girl will consist of representing the school at events and they are an integral part of the induction process for new pupils or prospective new members of staff. The Head Boy and Girl and their Deputies are key to all major events that the school is involved in such as Head teacher’s or other Awards Assemblies, taking parents and pupils on tours of the school and generally welcoming visitors to the school. As ambassadors for the school, they ensure that the views of all pupils are represented and listened to by coordinating student voice for a wide range of school issues from teaching and learning to school dinners.
In keeping with British democracy, the selection process for all candidates is to put their name forward as an expression of interest. They then present a speech to their class, and their peers vote to shortlist candidates. The pupils short listed will then present a speech to the whole year group and teaching staff and a democratic vote will take place.
This year the quality and leadership shown by all candidates was exceptional and it was a privilege to be part of this process.
