This week, we had the opportunity to thank the outgoing Sixth Form Student Leadership Team (SSLT) for their dedication, resilience and unwavering spirit and energy during what has been the most challenging of 12 month periods for all.
As our SSLT prepare to step down from their leadership positions to focus time on their studies and planning for the next chapter in their lives, we took the time to celebrate their achievements and to thank them for all that they have done.
We thanked Daria (Head Girl), Shri (Deputy Head Girl for Partnerships), Sophie (Deputy Head Girl for Student Services) and Ellen (Deputy Head Girl for Marketing) for their inspiration, leadership and commitment to their roles and wished them, and all of our Year 13 students, every success for all that their future holds.
We were extremely fortunate to have a very strong field of candidates from Year 12 who expressed interest in joining the next SSLT, to undertake responsibilities such as representing the school at formal occasions, organising and chairing the Student Council, representing the High School at GDST Council meetings, developing the school’s partnership programme with external organisations and developing the Venture Team.
These Year 12 students have worked hard to impress during a stringent election process, preparing election speech videos and canvassing their peers to win votes. Shortlisted candidates were interviewed by members of the staff Senior Leadership Team, and we identified 4 collaborative, energetic and innovative students, extremely worthy of their new positions on the 2021/2022 SSLT.
We are delighted to announce that this week we appointed the following students into SSLT roles:
2021/2022 Sixth Form Leadership Team: Jodie, Head Girl, Steph, Deputy Head Girl for Partnerships, Shreya, Deputy Head Girl for Student Services, Freya, Deputy Head Girl for Marketing
