I was delighted this week to be able to announce to the School the appointment of the Prep School’s Head Boy and Head Girl, together with their deputies, for this academic year. During the interview process, Mrs Hunt (Head of Pastoral) and I were amazed at the maturity and clarity of understanding of this important ambassadorial role, shown by each of the Year 8 candidates. It was by no means an easy choice, as we selected Maia Dimmer as Head Girl and Billy Harris as Head Boy; congratulations to them both. In a week in which so many of our senior pupils were inspired, whether on the hockey pitch, as musical scholars or in the classroom, the process once again revealed the vital role that our pupils in Year 8 play in setting the correct tone and in leading by example around school.
