Welcome from the Head Students
This year, we have taken on the role of Head Student as a joint partnership, with both a Head Boy and Head Girl. This will be Ed’s seventh year at TWGSB having joined in Year 7 in 2012 and has found his time at the school to be hugely fulfilling and rewarding. Alice, however is a newcomer to the Sixth Form and has enjoyed her first year at TWGSB. In our time spent here we have both noticed that not only are the staff at TWGSB incredibly supportive to all students in order to help them achieve their academic potential, but the range of students from year 7-13 are just as welcoming. All come together to create a strong sense of community which can be felt throughout the school. As well as catering for academic ability, the school also helps the students to learn a variety of different skills outside of the classroom with the huge number of extra curricular clubs that are offered.
Although the girls may be a minority compared to the boys in the sixth form, Alice is confident that all female students are offered opportunities to participate fully in school life and therefore fulfil their potential just as their male counterparts will do.
This year we have a strong team of twenty Senior Prefects, with Ben Austin and Sam Barker as our Deputies and a further twelve House Captains being led by Dylan Razzell and Michael Petrick as Senior House Captains. We are hugely excited to have such a fantastic group of people and know that with such a team we will be able to get a huge amount done this year.
Our chosen charity this year is called Jigsaw South East and is based in the South East of England. It works to help bereaved children and we are so pleased and excited to be able to work with them in this upcoming academic year, as it is an issue that we feel is very pertinent and will have touched the lives in some way of many of our students be it directly or indirectly.
Our main aim, as a whole team, is to further the community within the school so that bridges can be built between younger and older students throughout different years. As well as promoting the schools values and helping each and every student to achieve their very best.
