Senior Prefect Team 2017-2018

Mrs Harrington, Head of Sixth Form sent us this report:

“There has been a lot of excitement since the Hustings was launched a few weeks ago. A huge number of Year 12 students wrote applications, to be considered for the prestigious position of Head Girl and Head Boy for 2017-2018. The calibre was incredibly high and we were blown away by the vast amount of experience our students have had in leadership, organisation and fundraising. It was also touching to hear how many students felt they wanted to give back to the school, which has allowed them to accomplish so much. 

It took a lot of time to reduce our list of applicants to those who had made it through to the Hustings assembly stage. Student Voice is an integral part of how the future of Invicta is shaped. It is a vital part of the campaign for applicants to prove to the whole school, that they have what it takes to lead their school for the next academic year, as well as allowing everyone to get to know them – all in the space of one minute. We were so impressed by our students’ maturity in deciding what they were looking for in a Head Girl/Boy and there was a real buzz around the school with everyone discussing and comparing their reasons for their choice.

Our student body has spoken, the votes were counted and we now had our Senior Prefect Team – but the hardest challenge was still to come! We still had to choose Head Girl, Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl.  We knew how high the calibre of our applicants was.  It was important to us that we challenged them during the presentation and interview stages. Our Head Girl and Head Boy are so much more than just figureheads in a school. Therefore, it was imperative that candidates could demonstrate their ability to follow through the plan, they hoped to develop at Invicta. This would be their legacy. Their action plan would detail how it would be rolled out across the school, working with students, staff and the wider school community. After this presentation, students were asked a series of interview questions.

Mrs Derrick, Mrs Jackson and I were really moved by the sincerity and warmth of applicants’ pride and love of their school, and marvelled at their great entrepreneurial and leadership skills in how they envision helping to further improve Invicta.

It took a lot of discussion to finally make our decision – but – we are very excited and proud to announce that we have appointed Yazmin Taylor as Head Girl, Max McManus Head Boy and E-J Roodt as Deputy Head Girl for 2017-2018. They will work alongside our Senior Prefect Team: Jodie Charman, Olivia Fuller, Emily Godon, Chloe Holman, Bryony Jenner, Becky Larkman and Taqiyah Meflah.

Congratulations to everyone, and a massive thank you to everyone who applied. Our new team is excited and raring to go!”
