The position of head students is an extremely important one and is the most senior student roles in the school. They are the leaders of the student community and an important link between students and staff. They play an ambassadorial role within the school and often speak at public events such as open evenings.
They act as role models for the wider school community and present assemblies to all year groups throughout the academic year. In addition to this, they also play an important role at parents evenings and organise fund raising for charities and the Year 13 summer ball.
The head students are appointed in July of each year based on a rigorous selection process which involves hustings, a student and staff vote and a final interview with a student and staff panel
