Local Faces: John Colet School Head Students
These students had to complete their studies for GCSEs in lockdown and have now experienced sixth form in the same strange way. Surprisingly, Covid-testing at home has become a way of life. Another change – the abolition of gender described leadership – so they are all head or deputy head students. To help them in their leadership work, they will be assisted by 8 prefects whose roles will include:
- social activities eg pizza after school night
- exploring careers with younger students
- publicity for all student led activities within school
- building the Colet community focussing on diversity, inclusion, equality and anti-bullying
John Colet School has always encouraged vertical integration but this is difficult with staggered lunchtimes to facilitate bubbles and distancing so one huge task for these leaders is rebuilding relationships between year groups. Everyone will be working hard at this task.
