North Walsham High School Unveils New Student Leadership Team

Posted on: 27th June 2016

North Walsham High School has announced the appointment of its student leadership team for the next year – following a rigorous ‘job interview’ style selection process.

The new head boy and head girl, their deputies and three lead senior prefects, will take a leading role in school affairs, as well as representing the school in the wider community.

James Martell and Katy Fleming have been named as head boy and head girl respectively, with Ben Schamp and Lucy Taylor selected as deputy head boy and girl.  George Bolton, Jade Starling and Keita Vilka have been chosen as the lead senior prefects.

The seven were picked following a challenging selection process designed to mirror real-world job interviews.  Applicants for the posts, which were open to every member of the year group which became year 11 this month (and will be next year’s GSCE year), were required to make a presentation and undergo an interview.

Head teacher Neil Powell said, “Our student leadership team plays a prominent role in the life of the school.  This includes presentations at internal and external school events, helping to create initiatives such as our Expert Learners programme, and representing the school in the wider community.

“The process by which they were selected is rigorous, to ensure that we end up with a student leadership team which represents the very best of North Walsham High School’s student body.

“I look forward to working with all seven members of the team over the coming 12 months.”
