Prefects and Heads of School commissioned in Sung Eucharist

During this year's first Whole School Sung Eucharist, we were delighted to celebrate the formal commissioning of the School Prefects and the four Heads of School. 

Well done to this year's Prefects: Rosie H, Ruth B, Max B, Tallulah R, Oliver P, Sofia R. Seb F, Shirin M, Charina G, Kwame N, Rafi B P, Jina C, Victor A, Kitty C-H, Ollie F, Alice S, Ben M-S, Claudia W and Samuel B.  

Further responsibility will be given this year to the four Heads of School: Shirin, Sofia, Max and Samuel. 

Sofia is studying Spanish, Drama, History and Economics at A Level, and hopes to study Culture, Media and Creative Industries next year: 
'As a Head of School, our responsibility is to help and assist all the members of the College, especially during these difficult times. It was with absolute delight and honour that I accepted this role, becoming an ambassador for both pupils and staff alike. I look forward to working closely with Mr Oliver and Mrs Dugdale as well as with Max, Shirin and Sam, my fellow Heads of School, who are very deserving of this role. I hope to help the College in the same way it has helped me and so many others throughout the years and as I’m sure it will in the years to come.'

Shirin will be studying Biology, Chemistry and Spanish at A Level. She hopes to study Medicine or Neuroscience after Lancing: 
'I feel so honoured to be one of the new Heads of School. Being appointed was such a pleasant surprise, and I’ve enjoyed taking on the responsibilities it entails. This includes, for example, meeting with the Head Master every week, discussing general issues that have been highlighted by the pupil body. Though it adds to my already hectic schedule, it’s a wonderful feeling to have been chosen to represent the pupils of the College; it’s very rewarding after spending the last four years here! After having been so inspired by the previous years’ Heads of School, I aspire to make as much of a positive impact on the school as they have.'

Max is taking Maths, Computer Science and French at A Level
'I am very excited to work with my peers as a Head of School and am extremely honoured to have been offered this position. I joined the Third Form back in 2017 and since then I have been working towards this; I am glad it paid off. I aim to always be around to help other students if needed, which I think is a key part of the role - as well as being that link between the students and staff.'  

Samuel is studying Maths, Physics, French and German at A Level, and plans to study Mechanical Engineering after his exams:
'I am very honoured and grateful to have been selected as a Head of School and I was delighted to accept the position. In this position, I am eager to represent the students and lead, with the help of Max, Sofia and Shirin, such a strong team of Prefects. I hope this position will help me grow, as have all the experiences I have had the privilege of enjoying since I joined in the Fourth Form.'
