Specific roles:

Student Ambassadors – work closely with the house leaders and the KS3 team to represent the school, plan and support events.

Pastoral Prefects – work with Ms Rideout and the Pink Room team in supporting students.

The process – for each role you will at least have an interview but for some roles you may have to complete a group task and or make a brief presentation.  More to follow on this.

The student leadership of the school is highly valued and makes a significant contribution to its ethos and continuing improvement.

Please don’t be influenced by what others student may do or not do.  Think for yourself and take responsibility for developing yourself and your skills for the future.  It is a risk, you may or may not be successful but either way you will learn something.

Why not? Will the class of 2013 be the most amazing we have seen yet?
