Head Boy and Girl Announcement
we are pleased to announce that Esme Walters is the new Head Girl, and Will Taylor the new Head Boy
Head Boy and Girl:
In March we have begun the process of interviewing the new senior students for 2015-16 with the election of the new Head Girl and Head Boy. This begins with the hustings in the Assembly Room in which the prospective candidates stand up and give a speech justifying their candidacy to all who come and choose to listen. This year the room was packed with fairly raucous but very supportive Year 12s and Year 13s, and the mood genuinely reflected the great family atmosphere of the sixth form. There were seven candidates, and all gave superb speeches, though very different in tone, from the reflective, detailed proposals of some to the more directly persuasive approaches of others (in no way singling out James Armstrong’s, “I am the strong arm candidate”).
The students then vote in order of preference for each post, and the votes are counted by means of single transferable voting, so that we end up with two applicants each for Head Boy and Girl. These are then put through two interviews, one with the sixth form team and departing Head Boy and Girl, and the other with the Principal, Vice Principal and Head of Sixth Form.
At the end of a rigorous process, we are pleased to announce that Esme Walters is the new Head Girl, and Will Taylor the new Head Boy, but our congratulations go to all the candidates for the courage, creativity and confidence of their applications.
