Introducing our New Junior Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl!

22nd February 2024

We are thrilled to introduce our new Junior Head Girl, Umayyah and Deputy Head Girl, Abby! They both impressed us during the application and interview process with their enthusiasm, leadership skills, and dedication to serving our school community.

We have no doubt that Umayyah and Abby will do an outstanding job in their new roles and we look forward to seeing all the incredible things they will accomplish. Congratulations to our new Junior Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl – we know you will make us proud!

Read on as we get to know our new Junior Head Girl Umayyah, and Deputy Head Girl Abby:

What are you most excited about in your new roles?

Abby: I’m most excited about having some new responsibilities and also to do more speeches. In particular, I’m excited to present to Pre-prep about what life is like in Junior school, to tell the Year 2 children a little bit more about Junior school life, and that there is nothing to be worried about as I know some children get a bit worried about moving up schools.

Umayyah: I’m looking forward to doing assemblies and speeches! I’m also enjoying the new added responsibilities and being a good role model for younger students to look up to.

What are important qualities that you need as Head and Deputy Head Girl?

Umayyah: I think you need good leadership and teamwork skills. You need to be able to represent people. It’s important to treat people how you want to be treated, so I’ll make sure to do that whilst being Head Girl.

Abby: I think it is really important that you listen to others, we will use our new roles to listen to our fellow students and then use our voices to tell teachers we work with, and try to help students.

What does your role as Head and Deputy Head Girl include?

Abby: We do lunch duties along with the prefects and Heads of Houses. We organise these leaders to see when they are free and create a rota to make sure everyone knows when they are doing their lunch duty.

Umayyah: We will be organising events, to raise money for charity or to celebrate different occasions. For example, I would really like to organise a dress-up day for science week, where all students dress up as an inspirational scientist that they like or find interesting. We are going to try and make sure that there are things for all students in every year group to enjoy. I would also love to run a bake sale for charity!

What skills are you developing in your role?

Abby: I think being deputy head girl is helping me to get used to more responsibility, which I think will help me when I start in Senior’s in September. I also like the challenge because although it is slightly scary, I am proud of myself for pushing myself out of my comfort zone. 

Umayyah: I think I am becoming a better leader. I am helping other people with their jobs if they need it and trying to be a good role model for younger students.
