Selection of School Captains for 2018-19

School Captain 2018 – 2019 Application

We are now welcoming applications for the role of school captain for session 2018-2019. This is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to take on a leadership role and have a positive impact on the school community. The role would offer an opportunity to develop skills and qualities that will be invaluable when moving into post-school destinations, be that in the workplace or continuing in education.

There is a 3 stage process for candidates to complete before a decision will be made. A framework and timeframe are outlined below:

1. A letter of application (1 side A4) outlining why you wish to be considered for the role and how you could positively represent the pupil body and the school within the community. Consider personal skills and qualities and the contribution you have already made to the school.
Handed to Head Teacher by Friday 20th April.

2. Successful applicants will be selected for interview where a panel of staff and pupils will ask a series of questions to gauge further suitability for consideration.
Interviews held on Thursday 7th June.

3. The 4 successful interviewees, following consultation, will make a 3 minute presentation to their year group peers, demonstrating why they would make an excellent school captain. All pupils and staff will then submit a vote to confirm chosen captains and vice captains for the year.
Presentations delivered week beginning 11th June.

Recognising our school value of ambition and our aim of developing character, confidence and courage, I would encourage all pupils to consider applying for the role.

The school captain charter, as agreed on by this year’s captains, is available on this link and applicants should refer to this for some guidance in completing their letter of application.

I look forward to reading all applications.
