Local Faces: John Colet School Head Students

The new team of Head Students at John Colet School is keen to go back to the many fundraising student activities so sadly missed during lockdown and its aftermath and to innovate, too. One option might be a promotional video for the school website.

The Head Students see themselves as coordinators for two different groupings within the school. As the sixth form continues to grow, the Head Students see themselves as its voice in discussions with staff. Just as important is the opportunity for sixth formers to help younger students with all their transitions, too.

One of their main concerns is to provide more sporting opportunities for sixth formers. This will include use of the Fitness Suite on Tuesday afternoons and a special sporting challenge once every half term. This could include staff v student games and other similar fun activities, possibly with community input including food trucks offering nutritious options.
