Appointment of Headgirl, Headboy and deputies
We are pleased to announce the appointment of our senior students; Uchenna Anyadiegwu, Headboy, Joely Weston, Headgirl and their deputies Mille Aston, Toni Carr, Thomas Watson and Katie Wood. The students applied for the prestigious positions by submitting a letter to the Headteacher, outlining why they wanted to be appointed and the things they would like to achieve. They took part in a group discussion after which the six students above were formally interviewed by Mrs Potter, Ms Richardson and Mr McCarthy, a member of the Local Governing Board.
Les Richardson, Head of Sixth Form, said; “The students handled the rigorous process extremely well and we are all very proud of how they represented themselves. For some of them, this was their first experience of a formal interview but they quickly settled into it and spoke very eloquently. They are excellent ambassadors for the School and Sixth Form and we look forward to working with them during the year and seeing their ideas come to fruition.”
The students put forward ideas about how they could support younger students during this uncertain time by using technology. They understand that face-to-face meetings and assemblies with younger students are currently not possible, but they are keen to interact with them and get their messages across virtually. Many of them are already involved in the community and are keen to continue the strong links between Richmond School and Sixth Form College and local groups.
