Welcome from the Head Students
We would like to introduce ourselves, Harry Francis and Hannah Sexton, as Head Boy and Head Girl. As Head Boy, this will be my seventh year at TWGSB and I have found my time at the school to be extremely fulfilling, both academically and through extra-curricular activities, and I am committed to furthering the school community. My A Level subjects are Biology, Economics and English Literature. As Head Girl I joined the school in Year 12. I have felt very welcome in the school community and am excited at the prospect of co-leading the student body. My A Level subjects are Art, English Literature and Sociology.
Throughout our time at the school we have seen that not only are the students across the school incredibly welcoming, hard-working and dedicated to the TWGSB community, but that all the staff, especially the Senior Leadership, Sixth Form and Pastoral teams, are incredibly supportive and will ensure that every single student has the opportunity to maximise their academic potential.
There is an extremely wide range of subjects offered throughout each stage of the school. TWGSB especially prides itself on the 25 subjects we offer at A Level, as well as the opportunity of undertaking the Extended Project Qualification. The school also ensures it caters for developing extra-curricular skills through a range of clubs such as the debating society and Young Enterprise which can be great ways to meet new people and learn new skills.
Whilst the female students are a minority at the school, the numbers joining the TWGSB Sixth Form are growing each year, and we are confident that the opportunities available to them are equal to that of the boys, ensuring they fulfil their potential to the same level as their male counterparts.
This year we have an amazing team of 16 Senior Prefects, including our Deputy Head Boys, Gabriel Kupper and Jacob Bottley, and a further 16 House Captains, led by our Senior House Captains, Rory Sturgeon and Harvey Wood. We are very excited to work with the team and are confident in our ability to reach our high targets for the year. We are aiming not only to strengthen the connection between the upper and lower school but also to make the school a more environmentally sustainable community to ensure we do our part to protect the natural world around us.
We have also chosen to fundraise for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance and the Kings College Hospital Charity, two organisations that have touched the lives of many students and staff at TWGSB. We are attempting to raise the most our school ever has for the Head Students’ charity to show our extreme gratitude and appreciation. We also want to use fundraising methods that both students and teachers can get involved in, making sure that the fundraising events are fun and evoke comradeship between everyone taking part.
