Student Leadership Team

James

Year 13 - Head Boy

Hello, my name is James, and I have attended The King Edmund School from Year 7. My role as Head Boy is to oversee the School Council. The aim of the group is to organise events that are beneficial for students to improve their confidence, but it also links with other groups, such as the Charity Committee, which helps raise money for local charities. Being Head Boy is an amazing achievement for me because I have always aspired to do the role, ever since I started at KES. It is a role that shows leadership but also demonstrates a hard working student. I am really enjoying my time at KES; I feel like it is like a family with all the friends I have made over the years. I have performed in many school productions such as Oliver and this has helped boost my confidence when talking to other students.

Keeley

Year 13 - Head Girl

Going for the Head Girl role made me step outside my comfort zone and built up my confidence. I knew with this opportunity I could get involved with decision making and represent students views. I feel like speaking to large groups of people and voicing my opinions has shown me and other that I am capable of leading a team and listening to many voices. I enjoy my role and have learnt that with motivation and good ideas the Student Leadership Team can make positive things happen in our school.

Edward

Year 13 - Deputy Head Boy

My name is Edward and I am Deputy Head boy for KES. I am in Year 13 and I am studying A Level Sociology, Forensic Science and a double BTEC in Sport. I applied for the role of Deputy Head boy because it would give me a way of developing the communication between students and staff to introduce new ideas. As part of my role, I have been enrolled as Head of the Academic Community, which helps students at KES feel comfortable and safe in a new learning environment. I hope I can help those students achieve their full potential and create ways to develop their academic ability.

Enock

Year 11 - Senior House Captain - Vikings

I want to be able to do great things in life and I see becoming a Senior House Captain at KES as a stepping stone on that journey. I am the first person in my family to occupy a role like this at school and I want to make them proud. Hopefully I can be a voice for students and I would like to encourage all students to become fit and healthy through exercise and improved diet. I regularly go to the gym and take part in athletics and shot putt and I believe that this helps me to achieve in all areas of my life.

Annia

Year 11 - Senior House Captain - Vikings

I have always been quite shy and reserved, which is why I wanted to be a Senior House Captain; I wanted the opportunity to find my own voice and prove to myself that I can do something to overcome my shyness. I hope that in this role I can be an inspiration to others and provide students, who feel shy about speaking out, someone like them to talk to.

Year 1 1 - Senior House Captain - Saxons

In my role as Senior House Captain, I would like to encourage a community feel where students help each other and work together to do good, inside and outside of school. My favourite subjects are dance and drama which give me confidence and will allow me to add a creative edge to any events that we organise. I would like to make a positive difference and leave school feeling that I helped to make it a better place.

My aim is to one day run my own business as an architect. Becoming a Senior House Captain is providing me with experience of leadership and team working. Part of the role is also about organising events and activities, all of which will help me in the future. I want to encourage students to believe they can achieve anything they put their mind to. I want to be a role model to show students that it doesn't matter what your ethnicity, gender, age, or even hair colour is, you can achieve great things.

Holly

Year 11 - Senior House Captain - Romans

I have been a House Captain since I was in Year 7 and felt that the experience I have gained would make me a good Senior House Captain in Year 11. Musical theatre is my passion and this helps be to be a confident and chatty person. I believe this helps me to be a good spokesperson for students and articulate their views effectively. I enjoy being a leader and I would like to get the school more involved in local issues in the community.

I have been the House Captain for Romans for the past few years and so it felt natural for me to apply to become Senior House Captain. I enjoy being a positive role model, especially to my younger brother as he looks up to me. I would like to really achieve something in this role so that I can leave a legacy and be part of KES history. I am one of the top 50 rugby players in Essex and one of the top three in my position. I would like to use my experience to help students work together as a team and use exercise to help them be fit and healthy.

Life @ KES

Emily

Future Designer

At the King Edmund School sixth form I am currently studying Product design, Biology and Psychology. I have studied at KES since year 7 and I thoroughly believe that the school make every effort to make all students feel comfortable, whilst still achieving well. Something that I love about our sixth form is that you can study the subjects that you are passionate about even if they don’t traditionally go together. All teachers at KES put in extra hours and energy into ensuring that the students achieve their best. This is especially apparent in the product design department where teachers and students frequently spend extra time outside of school to ensure that all coursework projects are completed fully and achieve a good grade. I recently made a large elephant water feature for my AS level coursework, which many schools would have not permitted due to the large scale and difficulty of the project; however KES welcomed my idea and were willing to help me to find the resources for me to complete the project. In the future, I hope to become a product designer and I feel that KES has helped me to become prepared for the world of work by running extra curricular clubs such as career ready. This is a programme that students can join to allow them to understand and get ready for following their ambitions. The school also choose subject ambassadors, I received this in Year 11 for product design which greatly boosted my confidence in the subject. The school frequently praise students for their good work, this is also done at the annual awards evening.
