Welcome to the TWGSB website. My name is Jamie Weller and I am very honoured to be representing the school as the Head Boy for the forthcoming academic year (2014-2015).
I have been a student at the school since 2008, whilst at the school I have seen it go from strength to strength with the addition of a range of new facilities, most notably the 3G artificial sports pitch which furthers the excellent facilities the school has to offer. I am now in Year 13 and studying Geography, Mathematics and Physical Education at A2. I hope to study Sports and Exercise Science at university next year.
The school offers a wealth of opportunities that not only help the students develop academically but also contribute to their personal, physical and emotional development. These opportunities are offered across a wide variety of departments from sports clubs to music and drama productions and many more (click here).
Whilst at the school I have taken a number of excellent opportunities which have helped build my self confidence and teamwork skills, these opportunities include representing the school in a range of sport teams, educational visits and a two week World Challenge expedition to Ghana in 2012.
Additionally the school offers Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards and the opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills taking part in our annual highly successful Young Enterprise company (Y12).
The Deputy Head Boys this year are Gregory Hall, Harvey Osborne, Liam Davies and Thomas Hale. Together we are the students’ representatives to the senior management team through the school council and the Sixth Form Forum.
This year I have chosen to split the Head Boys charity. Half the money raised will go towards making the Sixth Form Common Room a more welcoming environment for years to come. The other half will go to former student Matt Short’s charity - Sarcoma Research Trust.
Thank you for taking time to read this. I hope that you find the school's website informative.
