For 2020/2021 Humphry Davy School has appointed nine Senior Students.
2020 has been exceptional in many ways and having missed a large chunk of schooling in Year 10 due to the lockdown, appointing an increased number of Senior Students will help balance the demands upon them as they complete their GCSE course requirements.
Selected by a rigorous recruitment process involving students, teaching staff, the leadership team and the governing body, the Senior Students lead the Prefect Team. These prestigious posts are not undertaken lightly and our Senior Students show admirable skill in balancing their GCSE preparations with their role. In addition to representing the school at different events and being ambassadors for Humphry Davy Students, their work also includes advising on the strategic direction of the school by providing input to the Leadership Team and the Governing Body. The team have also devised their own action plan and are working on a series of strategies to further develop the school.
