Student Council

Head Boy and Girl

Each year the Head Boys and Head Girls are nominated by students at the end of 5th year for selection by teachers and students and to be appointed in the following school year. The Head Boy and Head Girl are responsible for representing the school at events, they also serve as a good role model for students, and share pupils' ideas with the school's leadership. As ambassadors for the school, the Head Girls and Boys 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 the welfare of students. They have a key role to play in the leadership and development of our House system in the school.
