After a rigorous selection process including formal interviews, hustings and presentations, Harrogate Grammar School have announced the appointment of Jasmine Cannon as Head Girl and Jack Benson as Head Boy for 2015-16. Callum Nicol, Edward Lewis, Brier Jones, Susanna Cirulli, Francesca Wheeler and Matthew Fender have successfully been appointed as Deputies.
Head Boy Jack said:
We are both honoured to have this leadership opportunity.
We want to inspire younger students in the way that previous head 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 morning of Monday 6 July before then introducing themselves to our annual Summer Tea Party guests. This year they welcomed over 155 senior members of the community to an afternoon of tea, coffee and cake. Entertainment was provided from both our younger students to our Year 12 students who performed a dance routine as part of their final assessment.
