This week we have been interviewing Year 13 students for the roles of Head Girl and Head Boy. The six shortlisted candidates have drafted letters, given presentations, been interviewed and met with an array of senior staff as part of the selection process. Today I met with the six students ahead of us announcing the appointments to ask them to reflect on the process. They all spoke about how formative, thought provoking and challenging it had been and highlighted how beneficial it was in preparing them for the possible role and also for future interviews and applications at university or in their careers.
I left my meeting truly inspired by their enthusiasm, ambition and self-belief that they could have such a positive impact on our school and society.
Many thanks to the IB Senior Leadership Team for preparing the applicants so well and providing such a structured selection process.
