This year, several new PODS (Pupil Representatives for the OD Society) were appointed at a Wine & Cheese evening in September, which was also attended by the Headmaster, Head of School, Charlotte Williams, Deputy Heads of School, Jake Deasy and Emma Bruce, and selected members of the Common Room and ODS Committee members.

Charlotte Marlborough was invited, and accepted, to be Chair of the PODS, taking over from Beanie Trant. There are now 5 U6th and 5 L6th PODS, who each represent a house.

At this meeting, there was a presentation given by Helen Gregory (OD) on the responsibilities and benefits of being a POD. The Chairman of the OD Committee Nick Akerman presented the PODS with badges, designed by Beanie Trant.
