Congratulations to our new Student Leadership team who were chosen today after much deliberation.
There were more than 60 applications, which is the highest ever received in a Year 11 Year Group.
A total of 40 Year 11 students were interviewed over the past two days for Head Boy/Girl, Deputy Head Boy/Girl and for prefects, by our Principal Mr Eldon, Head of Year 11 Mrs Henzell and Year 11 Leader of Climate and Behaviour Ms Abela.
Mr Eldon said: “It’s been an amazing week for this year group. The answers to the questions we asked during the interviews were really mature and reflective, and I felt very proud to be part of it.
“The comments the students have made are powerful. They describe the change in expectations, quality of teaching and consistency. It is clear that any sense that they deserve a less effective school is evaporating and this is a key aspect of my vision for our school - that whatever background, heritage, gender, sexuality, religion, income - our expectations are sky high and we will provide a magic Manchester education.,” Mr Eldon added.
The standard of applications was so high that five prefect places were saved for a second round of applications and interviews, which will take place in mid November. This will give interested students the opportunity to improve their ATL, attendance and behaviour to prove they deserve the role. Attendance has to be 96% or above and ATL of 1-1.6.
Mrs Henzell said: “A huge well done to every single person who took part. It’s been really nice to get to know such wonderful children, and many of their answers were truly inspirational.”
Congratulations to our successful students and to everyone who was involved in the application process.
