Student Leadership

 

Only a relative handful of our students receive the rewards of leadership. St George’s has such a high calibre intake of prospective leaders and highly responsible students that selecting a few for “Prefectship” or House or School Captain, is always a tough decision, inevitably leaving perfectly able students disappointed at their lack of appointment.

New to St George’s?  Do not despair at gaining status! Annually, many new Georgians have been made Prefects, House Captains, School Captains or Deputy School Captains, Boarding Prefects or Boarding Captains! Be pro-active, join in!

The roles comprise of:

School Captains

The School Captains represent the Headmistress and her deputies in a range of ways.  This may include making speeches at Open Evening, giving votes of thanks to visitors, reading in Chapel, delivering Assemblies, representing the Headmistress or the student body and organising whole School events, such as Education for Africa Day.

School Captains

Alex

Hello, my name is Alex, and I am one of the four School Captains at St George’s. I take Biology, Psychology and Chemistry, with an aim of studying Biology after Sixth Form. I am incredibly grateful to St George’s for all the opportunities it has offered to get involved with the school; from house events to extra-curriculars, there’s never a time without somewhere to be or something to do. Collectively, our goals include encouraging more students to participate in all aspects of school life, and to push themselves, playing their part in the school community. We plan to achieve this by introducing new opportunities for leadership roles and community engagement. I am hugely excited to be working alongside Kiki, Oliver and Sophie, and I know that together we can increase pupil participation, and collectively leave a lasting impact on the school.

Ollie

Hi my name is Ollie, I currently study Biology, PE and Graphics communications. I joined St George’s as a boarder in the final term of year 8. The boarding community has had a massive impact on me and is a very special group of people to be a part of. St George’s has taught me to be adaptable and has offered me an environment in which I believe many can thrive in. There are activities and opportunities for everyone. I am optimistic for the next year and I am excited to work alongside Alex, Kiki and Sophie as well as the House captain and their team of prefects. I am grateful for the opportunity to represent the school and give back to the community who have shaped me into the person that I am today. My advice to everyone is to immerse yourself in the school community and get involved to help push the school to new heights.

Sophie

Hello, my name is Sophie, and I have been given the privilege of representing this school for the next year as one of the four school captains, and to follow in the footsteps of so many great leaders before me. I currently study Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computer Science for A-Level, and I aspire to go to university for a degree in Computer Science. Throughout my time at St Georges, I’ve always loved to get involved with the school community and do my part, so now my mission is to encourage the younger years of the school to do the same as well. I feel honoured to be able to work with Alex, Kiki and Olly for the next twelve months, and I hope that with their help we can reach these goals, and leave this school knowing that we have given it our all in these roles, and left our mark in a way that can benefit the school for years to come.

Kiki

Hi everyone! My name is Kiki and I have the honour of being one of St. George’s four school captains for the 2022/2023 academic year. I am currently studying mathematics, economics and chemistry at A-level and I hope to go on to get a degree in Economics and Management at university. Although I just joined St. George’s as a boarder in September, my experience here has been incredibly enriching and I am so excited for the year to come as I know Sophie, Alex, Ollie and I will help take the school to greater heights. There’s so much we want to do to give back. During our tenure, we plan to continue the student voice initiative developed by our predecessors. We also hope to strengthen and build on the school’s sense of community because at St. George’s, we believe that every student has something to offer and there are always opportunities to “Aim Higher”.
