The students below (pictured left to right) are
Tom, who is studying RE, History and Economics and am loving every minute of being a student at Helsby. According to Tom “I first applied to be Head Student because I was eager to take advantage of the many opportunities available to the Head Students. I aim to make the school an even better environment for the students by making the transition from high school to sixth form very comfortable. I also aim to be available for students to talk to if they have any issues and want to be as approachable as possible. I am very proud to represent my school and so far have fully enjoyed being a Head Student.”
Hope, who is taking A-levels in English Literature, Media Studies and History and plans to study English at university. Hope added “I’m delighted to be a Head Student, as it is something I have aspired to be during my time at Helsby. I’m looking to be a positive influence on the school, especially in being a role model for younger students, and developing the ideas I have for within the role.”
Hannah is studying Psychology, History and English Literature. Next year she intends to study English at university. Hannah told us “I’m proud to be Head Student because I want to work with pupils to help make the transition from primary to secondary school easier as well as from high school to sixth form. “
Alex is taking A-levels in German, Geography and Politics, with the intention of studying German and Russian at university. Alex said “I am so excited to embrace the opportunities within the role of Head Student, and I am particularly looking forward to not just working more closely with students and teachers, but with parents, primary schools and the wider community too.”
Jen, currently studying History, Politics and Media Studies, with a view to applying for a place on a prestigious police constable degree apprenticeship course. Speaking about her role, Jen said “I am honoured to be a Head Student as it is something I have been working towards in lower school. I hope to be a person that students feel they can come to with issues and ideas while also working new and exciting projects with my fellow Head Students. I am very excited to be given the chance to leave a positive legacy for the school and I can’t wait to get started.
Director of Sixth Form at Helsby High, Ian Duffell added “We are all really looking forward to working with such a talented and dedicated team of Head Students, and with the outstanding wider leadership group of Year 12 students who are taking up roles to further develop the sixth form in crucial areas such as Teaching and Learning and Mental Health. We are privileged to have such a high calibre cohort of student leaders here in Helsby Sixth Form and I know that they will be working hard to support and inspire students throughout the school over the coming year.”
