We are really happy to introduce our Student Leaders in Sixth Form for this academic year. Trinity Richardson, our Sixth Form reporter and a Student Leader herself, talked with the group this week.
Although this has been a difficult year for everybody, with unknowns not only in regard to our current education, but also our futures, either in universities, apprenticeships or employment, the Sixth Form Senior Team for this year hopes to continue the legacy of charity and community created by earlier years.
We aim to put a new foot forward in these uncertain times and be a constant reassurance to younger people.
Regardless of the challenges year group bubbles create, the team hopes to have as much interaction with the main school as possible, allowing ourselves to act as mentors and give advice we wished we had received when we were younger.
We hope to act as a symbol of hope and normality, regardless of how unusual it may all be, and just remember that even with masks on, we are still friendly, smiley faces you can rely on.
