Head Student Team
Ethan Waller, Head Boy
I have helped run the Key Stage 3 Enterprise Club over the past two years, aimed at increasing awareness and inspiring the lower years of the School about the importance of the world of business. This has been part of my role as a subject ambassador for the Business Studies Department. I have also been involved, for the past few years, in School Council. As a team, we have been discussing how we could best use our time in our roles and we have decided that we really want to see more interactivity among the whole school. We are a school with talents in different year groups. If we could have more interactivity, that would be really special and is something I want to support as Head Boy. I myself have worked with students in Key Stage 3 and have seen the benefits for both first hand.
In conjunction, I want more of my peers in the Sixth Form to have the opportunity to take up unique leadership roles. This is why I am very fond of the work of the Sixth Form Student Council, enabling individuals to be able to take forward what interests them. I want us all to work together to leave a legacy. It’s not just about grades, but also it’s the spirit of making the world greater each day. The support our teachers are willing to provide, to assist individuals to achieve their ambitions is second to none.
After Year 13, I’m keeping my options open but want to go into business, perhaps finance. I’m hoping to be able to study Business Economics at University. I feel inspired by people who show dedication to achieve something over a long period of time. The idea of every day improving things is what inspires me.
Kate Edgerton, Head Girl
At School, I have been a House Sports Captain, peer mentor and subject ambassador for both History and Languages, as well as Captain of netball and hockey teams. My main objective this next year is to give something back to School through fundraising. It is also to raise further awareness of current affairs with clubs, assemblies, perhaps a current affairs bulletin! I also feel strongly about environmental issues and sustainability and hope to support reducing the amount of plastic in the School as well as linking up with charities and their initiatives. I love the friendliness of the School, the support and happy atmosphere. I hope to either join the Navy or go to University . My inspirations are progress, improvement and self-development—the satisfaction you get out of achieving things and the progress made.
Huw Dickinson, Deputy Head Boy
Huw would like to study an Art foundation year and ultimately go into TV and production and Sabrina is off to study Politics and Economics with a view to entering the Finance world.
Sabrina Torris, Deputy Head Girl
I have been a Physics subject ambassador and on the School Council (Sabrina) and I’ve been a Subject Ambassador for Art and Drama (Huw). Our proposal for the year ahead is to work at integrating the Sixth Form community and new initiatives for the Arts, such as a Year 8 Boys Art Club. We also want to put into place more frequent ‘beyond school’ programs such as career talks. We love the welcoming atmosphere of the School and that we can express our individuality and it is great to see people who do well in things they love!
