Earlier this term The Romsey School went through the rigorous process of selecting its team of Senior Prefects from the pool of Year 11 students that achieved Prefect status in the Summer Term.

Students were firstly nominated by their peers and then invited to an interview where they were put through their paces by an interview panel which included Headteacher Annie Eagle and Deputy Headteacher Andy Marks.

Part of this process involved selecting students for the prestigious student leadership positions of Head Boy and Girl and Deputy Head Boy and Girl. The standard was incredibly high but the decision was unanimous and these positions were awarded to Isaac Osborne (Head Boy), Neve Adams (Head Girl), Jack West (Deputy Head Boy) and Sophie Watkinson (Deputy Head Girl). 

A further six students have been awarded the position of Senior Prefect; these are Emma Aitken, Thomas Cave, Bronwen Josty, Xavier Dunn, Fleur Newman and Heera Roath.

Headteacher Annie Eagle described the interviews as a personal highlight and was quite overwhelmed by the responses given by the students, their commitment to the school and the gratitude they felt for the opportunities that they have been afforded over the years. 

Mrs Eagle said, “All of the candidates have made an excellent contribution to school life, displaying exemplary conduct and high standards across a range of academic, sporting and creative activities, as well as showing themselves to be fantastic role models to the younger students. We look forward to watching them all develop further and leading the student body over the coming months.”

The team is now working hard to adapt their roles within the restrictions imposed upon us all by the pandemic while navigating their way through a very different Year 11 at The Romsey School.
