“My role as a wisdom head student is primarily to look after the student’s learning as well as the curriculum. As a result of this, it is my role to oversee any surveys and promote the answering of them, such as the history survey, to ensure that every student is satisfied with their subject and the methods being used to teach them. I have also made minor participation with the heads of the other branches and helped them out by presenting their slides for comic relief. Beyond this, I have given multiple tours of the school to students, and teachers, using my knowledge of the school building to promote it in the best way I can.
As a head student it is my role to also look after the 27 ambassadors who work below me in their respective years, and get their input on issues and improvements that we can make. As a team we have taken steps to help the safety of students on social media and made amendments to a programme known as ‘accelerated reader’ to make it more interactive and enjoyable, whilst retaining its main function of promoting students reading.
Being part of the Wisdom branch, derived from our ethos of Wisdom, Service and Hope, means that I must lead by example in displaying Wisdom. To me, being Wise is about knowing the right decision and deducing the rights among the wrongs, even when the line between them is blurred.
My role in the sixth form is largely ceremonial at best, but it has been my role to promote the sixth form, be it during tours of the school, or presenting it to the years below. I have also taken it upon myself to look after the sixth form students and ensure that students feel as comfortable as possible, while making sure that sufficient learning is taking place.”
