Dear Year 10 Students, Firstly, I really hope that you are well. We are really missing you!
As you all know, we are extremely passionate about Student Leadership within our school and as you will soon be going into Year 11, we would like to invite you to apply to be Head Boy or Head Girl. Any student in the Year group is able to apply. Those coming ‘runner up’ will become Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl.
Obviously, due to the current situation, the way that we will be selecting will be slightly different and will be mainly based upon your letter of application and possibly a short interview when we return to school.
In order to apply, you will need to submit a written assessment (letter) of your personal qualities and experiences that make you the ideal candidate to become Head Boy/Head Girl. Your letter should be no longer than 2 sides of A4 and needs to address the following points:
Why we need a Head Boy/Head Girl
School activities/events that you have taken part in
Examples of how you have displayed the school’s core values- Respect, Aspiration, Collaboration, Excellence and Resilience
Anything else that you feel demonstrates your leadership skills/personal qualities related to the post.
Only if it is not possible for you to email your letter, please place it into the box located in the main school office on your return to school in September. You are able to submit an application as soon as you like but you will also be able to submit in the first week back after the Summer holidays as we are aware that some people may not have internet/computer access.
I am really looking forward to reading your applications as the standard of Student Leaders in your Year group is incredibly high.
