After a rigorous selection process including formal interviews, hustings and presentations, Harrogate Grammar School are delighted to announce the appointment of Eloise Hudson as Head Girl and William Giddings as Head Boy for 2015-16.
Katie Lee, Phoebe Jamieson, Hannah Nash, Jack Hennigan, Albert Jennings and Ben Smith have successfully been appointed as Deputies.
Head Boy William said:
We are honoured to have this leadership opportunity.
We want to inspire younger students in the way that previous students inspired us.
The school has a long tradition of providing leadership opportunities and these are highly regarded positions within the school community.
Head of Sixth Form, Neil Renton, said:
All the students who applied performed extremely well. The successful applicants showed a real strength of character, an ability to lead others and I am confident that they will make a significant contribution as young leaders in the school.
The newly appointed Head Boy and Girl endured their final interview in the afternoon of Thursday 30 June before then introducing themselves to our annual Summer Tea Party guests in the afternoon of Monday 4 July. This year we welcomed over 100 senior members of the community to an afternoon tea party. Entertainment was provided from our students across the year groups.
