This week, we welcomed 12 members of the student body onto the Student Leadership Team at the Senior School.
The team are an integral part of our community, representing the School externally and providing support during a number of events, such as open days and parents’ evenings. They also meet regularly with senior teaching staff, making sure that the issues which are important to the student body are heard.
Their role in the pastoral system at St Edward’s is equally as important, with all of the Student Leadership Team being assigned to a specific school stage to act as their point of contact for any concerns relating to school life. As senior members of the school our prefects are well placed to offer useful advice, often drawn from their own experiences.
Students must apply for these roles and complete an interview process with several of our senior teachers in order to prove that they are able to provide the commitment and maturity required for their preferred position.
Roles have been assigned as follows:
Head Girl and Key Stage 4 Prefect: Harriet R
Head Boy and Key Stage 4 Prefect: James C
Charity Prefect and Key Stage 4 Prefect: Rahima B
Charity Prefect and Year 7 Prefect: Kyle Y
Fisher House Captain and Y8 Form Prefect: Samantha W
Fisher House Captain and Y9 Form Prefect: Luca Z
More House Captain and Y9 Form Prefect: Grace R
More House Captain and Y8 Form Prefect: Joss B
Newman House Captain and Y8 Form Prefect: Anastasia M
Newman House Captain and Y9 Form Prefect: Jonny F
Year 7 Prefect: Phoebe R
Key Stage 4 Prefect: James A
Mr Burke, Senior School Headmaster, commented:
“I am delighted with the calibre of the applications received for these posts. Assigning the roles was a tough decision but I am very pleased with the student Leadership Team that have been chosen, i’m sure they will do an excellent job and provide fantastic role models for our younger students.”
Well done to all of our new Student Leaders and good luck in your new roles.
