Following a challenging application process Falmouth School have appointed a new Head Boy and Head Girl along with deputies and a full senior prefect team. Max Thompson and Ella Longhorn were named as Head Boy and Head Girl, deputised by Rory O’Conaill and Izzy Macpherson, with the team starting their roles straight away.
The quartet will be helped out by Senior Prefect Rosie Evans and a prefect team which includes; Lily Mills, Alex Munden, Brendan Townley, Ollie Fielding, Efie Ward, Ed Tinson, Saffy Bevan, Jago Ros-Rydh, Shannon Watkins and Hannah Bowen.
With such strong candidates applying, the selection process spanned nearly a month as students began the tough process. This included initial applications, a meeting with the current Junior Leadership Team, delivering an assembly to their peers, a school improvement paper and interviews with the Senior Leadership Team.
The group will be looking closely at how maximise effectiveness and productivity in tutor time for students and to continue to strengthen links to the community. On a more day to day basis the students are focusing on making themselves available to hear the views of other students.
The quartet were understandably delighted with their appointment and are looking forward to getting started. Max said “it’s very exciting to have the opportunity to represent the views of my fellow students” with Ella adding “it was a tough process. We’ve got a strong team and I can’t wait to work alongside them.” Rory said “I’m looking forward to having an impact on the school and the community” with Izzy summarising “Everyone who applied should be immensely proud of their achievements.”
Director of achievement, CPD and Sport Jem Wallis, said: “This is a really exciting time for Falmouth School. Our newly elected student leadership team are fantastic positive role models for our students. They will help to ensure that student leadership has a much greater impact on the school and its students as we move forward.”
