Following a stringent application process which included an interview with the Head of 6th Form, Mr Needs, and the Deputy Head of 6th Form, Mrs Coen, the new Student Leadership Team for 2022/23 was announced.
And as they settled into their new roles this week, members of the team were expected to ‘hit the ground running’ so to speak when they found themselves taking on their first ‘official’ engagement – playing a key role in our Open Evening event.
"Last year our Student Leadership Team was exceptional and I really didn’t believe that we’d get the chance to replicate such a wonderful group of hard-working and dedicated students. However, Assistant Head of Sixth Form Mrs Coen and I were incredibly impressed with the student applications this year and having spoken in depth to each and every one of the successful candidates, we know that they will make an incredible team and work extremely hard over the next academic year."
“I feel incredibly honoured to be Southborough’s new Head Boy and I aim to follow in the footsteps of previous, inspirational Head Boys from recent years and work very hard to make a positive difference. My first formal role - speaking at our recent Open Evening in front of hundreds of visiting parents and future students – was extremely daunting but ultimately rewarding. I felt proud to be representing the school and to share my journey at Southborough with the hundreds of visitors who were present that evening.”
“From the moment I joined Southborough Sixth Form, I was struck by the strong sense of community here. The teachers can’t do enough to help us and are very approachable. It’s clear that the teachers really care here. I’m so glad that I made the move to Southborough last year. I’ve enjoyed every moment of being here! ”Head of Sixth Form Mr Needs concluded: Mrs Coen and I are delighted with our new Student Leadership Team. They all did an amazing job show-casing the school earlier this week and we know that they will continue to do a fabulous job over the coming year ahead. We wish them every success in their new roles!”
