New Head Boy and Girl Appointed at Avon Valley School

Year 11 students appointed as school’s most senior student leaders

The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College is pleased to announce that the school’s head boy and head girl have been appointed for the 2020/21 academic year.

During the lockdown period students wishing to apply for one of the school’s leadership positions where required complete an application form. Those shortlisted listed for the positions went into the school for a socially distanced interview with the headteacher and their house’s achievement leader.   

Over twenty students applied for the positions, and completed the application process. For many of them this was their first experience of an interview situation. Due to the school’s closure, the student applicants had to wait until their first day back at school to find out who’d been successful.

After giving a good account of themselves in their interviews, new Year 11 students, Dominic Evans and Katie Wright were awarded their badges and have taken up their roles as head boy and head girl which they will fulfil until they leave the school in July, 2021.

In addition the school has also appointed a deputy head boy and deputy head girl, along with two students per house who will act as House Captains. The head boy, head girl and senior house prefects represent the school’s student community and serve as ambassadors at school events, and act as positive role models for the school’s younger students.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “Despite being away from school when the application opened it was brilliant to receive so many applicants from across the year group.

Ms Davies, added, “Both Dominic and Katie have shown themselves to be committed and hardworking students during their time with us at AVS. They are both wonderful role models who all other students can look up to. This year will be different for everyone, and it will present many challenges, but I am sure that Dominic and Katie will be innovative and will do a fantastic job in their new roles.”
