Sixth Form Progress Leader, Mrs Gibbs, has announced the election of the school's new Head Boy and Head Girl for 2014-15. Luke Acton and Fran Critchley will take up the roles in September following a vote by all students and staff this week.
The Head Boy and Head Girl are important student roles in school, responsible for representing pupil voice, managing School Council meetings and being ambassadors for the school and role models for younger pupils.
Students took part in a secret ballot on Tuesday to decide the new roles with nine Year 12 candidates standing for election including Charlotte Welch, Hannah James, Trudie Ward, Lucy Norton, Jessica Talbot, Jenna Clayton, Adam Copland and of course Luke Acton and Fran Critchley.
In their manifestos, which set out their aims and visions for the roles, both candidates pledged to work hard to support the progress and learning of younger students.
In her detailed campaign, Fran said "I can offer a friendly face, fantastic leadership skills, a good role model and somebody who listens to your views." She went on to say "I would like to offer a termly questionnaire where students write down their ideas giving you the chance to voice ideas easier. I would also like to promote recycling and improve participation in sport".
New Head Boy, Luke, added "I feel that the position of Head Boy should be filled by someone who has a clear vision of what they want changing in the school to benefit you, and someone who will take on all of your views to change what you want. I would welcome any other suggestions if I was to be elected, and would aim to act on any of them in an enthusiastic and positive manner to create a better school environment for everyone."
The successful candidates will replace the outgoing Head Boy and Head Girl Callum Griffiths and Kate Pilling who will be leaving for university after completing their A Levels in June.
Acting Headteacher Mr Christey gave the new Head Boy and Girl his congratulations and wished them "success in their new and important roles in school".
