Introducing our New Head StudentsIntroducing our New Head Students
Four year 11 students are thrilled to have been elected as head and deputy head students. The recruitment process for these prestigious and responsible roles took place at the end of last term. All year 10 students were invited to campaign and submit their manifestos, with a covering letter, to the school council setting out their ideas about the changes they would like to help introduce if elected.
Head Students - Abi Frost and Henry Jones
Abi is looking to continue her predecessor’s commitment of working with the canteen staff to look at reducing food prices and introducing a greater variety of vegetarian and vegan options. She also hopes to encourage more students to volunteer in the local community, launch more rewards for e-praise, and the production of yearbooks for the leaving class. Describing herself as a ‘capable and friendly person’ who ‘understands the struggles many students face’, Abi said: “I am so grateful for this opportunity to represent the students in our school and I am committed to achieving everything I set out in my manifesto.”
Henry is passionate about introducing more inter school events and competitions for students as well as sports activities during form time. He also wants to make the cold servery available for students during breaktimes in addition to lunchtime, in order to ease the queues for hot food. He said: “This is a very exciting opportunity, and I will work hard to achieve the things I have set out to do.
Deputy Head Students - Justin Hathaway and Zuzanna Piertzak
Justin says he will be ‘dedicated in achieving requests made by students’ and amongst his pledges is to look at introducing more eco-friendly activities and fundraising opportunities. More fundraising activities is also one of Zuzanna’s promises, as well as bringing back Christmas trips as per pre-Covid, and reintroducing meal deals with sponsorship from external companies to help with costs. She is also keen to launch a mentorship programme for GCSE students, bringing in speakers from schools, colleges and companies to talk about application processes and different career paths.
