New Leaders - House Captains and Head Pupils

Over the last half term, Year 5 have been preparing to transition to the 'top' of the school.  During this last academic year of primary school, they get the opportunity to take on leadership roles. 

The first of these roles to be appointed are House Captains and Head Pupils. 

These roles are appointed after an interview process.  Firstly, interested children had to fill in an application form.  These were whittled down to just 4 per house by our current Head Pupils.  These 16 children were then interviewed by Mrs Elliott, Mr Gardner and the previously mentioned Head Pupils. 

From these interviews we were able to appoint eight House Captains and, two that shone extra brightly have been appointed as our Head Pupils for the 2021 - 2022 academic year. 

May we introduce our House Captains-Elect:


Freya F & Lola


Emelia & Lottie


Lily & Xanthie


Hannah & Maccy



Joe H & Perdita

Our current House Captains and Head Pupils will begin training the new Leaders next week, allowing them to take on the role temporarily whilst the current Year 6 are away at their end of year residential. 

Unsuccessful applicants have been appointed one of our other leadership roles which we will reveal in a future blog.
