Ashly – Head Boy
I was extremely excited to discover that I had been chosen as Head Boy and delighted that my skills and leadership skills have been recognised. What I love the most about Red House is the huge range of opportunities on offer.
Personally, I have taken part in as many sports matches and teams as possible as I have found this area of school life very rewarding. However, I also greatly enjoy all of the lessons and academic activities available. My favourite subject is Design Technology, because I find the topics very interesting and love designing and making products. I also enjoy learning about other ways of life and other people’s beliefs in RS lessons. In my role as Head Boy I am looking forward to working with staff and the other members of the prefect team.
Kathryn – Head Girl
I am very grateful to have been selected as Head Girl and am excited to act as a role model and continue to support the school throughout the year. I am very much looking forward to working as part of the prefect team and to set a positive example for the rest of the school.
During my time at Red House, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the multiple opportunities that I have been given, especially in the sporting life of the school. In particular, I enjoy playing netball for the school team, as netball is a sport that I enjoy playing both inside and outside of school. I was delighted when our team made it to national finals last year, as it was an amazing experience and a fantastic end to a great season of netball. My favourite subjects in school are both French and Spanish, as I enjoy learning new languages and I believe that this is a useful skill to have and something that I would like to continue to develop in the future.
Jack – Deputy Head Boy
I am delighted to have been chosen as Deputy Head Boy because I understand the importance and responsibilities that come with the role. Whilst I still wish to be a good role model for the rest of the school, I also hope to be of good support to the Head Boy and Girl.
Outside of school, I represent County Durham by playing in the JAC hockey squad and enjoy learning to play the guitar. My favourite subject is Design Technology, as I enjoy all the practical activities and I am interested in the content of the course. I hope to be great ambassador for the school over the next year and look forward to the opportunity to develop my leadership skills through this role.
Iyrah – Deputy Head Girl
I am extremely thankful and happy to have been selected to represent Red House School as Deputy Head Girl. I look forward to fulfilling this role to the best of my ability. Outside school, I play netball for my club and I am developing my skills as an umpire. In the future, I hope to umpire super league matches, or matches of that calibre. In school, I have been working for the past six months as a volunteer as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award training, helping with after-school childcare in ‘Session Six’ in the Junior School. I am very grateful for this experience, as I have enjoyed getting to know some of our younger pupils and believe that I have learnt a great deal about how to be approachable. I am sure that the role of prefect will help me to develop other essential skills for the future.
