Head Boy and Head Girl
The role of Head Boy was something I have always aimed for, ever since the early days of year 7. I have spent the last five years of my school career building up a portfolio of achievements and it is an absolute pleasure to have ‘Head Boy’ added to the list. However, it should be said that nothing would have been achievable without the help of the fantastic members of staff and Charles Darwin School. Their support and guidance helped me dramatically over my GCSE period, allowing me to gain a total of 9 A*/A grades, which I was extremely proud to get.
It goes without saying that my time at Charles Darwin School has always been insightful. Whether this be the Duke of Edinburgh award, the Mindful scheme or the vast array of lectures and opportunities the school has offered me. Last year was an incredible start to Sixth Form life, and indeed life as a young adult. A particular highlight of mine was the two hundred hours of mentoring a variety of students, whether they were year 11’s embarking on their own GCSE journey, or year 8’s who are just about to choose their options – it re-inforced my view that education is not always about what you do for yourself, but what you do for others.
I look forward to spending this last year at Charles Darwin School along with all of the friends I have made along the way; may everyone be successful in the future.
