Pupil Leadership


I would like to thank Megan and Charlie, our outgoing Head Boy and Head Girl, for their outstanding contributions to the Academy this academic year. They have both given 100% to the role and been excellent ambassadors for the Academy. They are now well into their GCSE examinations and, along with every other pupil in Year 11, I would like to wish them the very best of luck for the future.

The post of Head Boy or Head Girl in any school is an incredible opportunity for any pupil to take their first steps into leadership. Over the last couple of weeks, our next candidates have not only been through a rigorous application and interview process but they have also introduced themselves in assemblies and talked to pupils during break and lunch times to gather support for their campaign before heading into the all-important pupil vote. The Academy has also been adorned with campaign posters, giving it the true ‘election feel’. I would like to thank Mrs Hoy and Mr Nicholson for all of their work in setting up and supporting our truly democratic election process.

I look forward to sharing the results of the pupil vote with you next week and introducing our new Head Boy and Head Girl of Winifred Holtby Academy.
