Meet the New Student Leadership Team

2nd May 2017

Hello, we are the new Senior Team and we would like to introduce ourselves. The new team consists of; Head Boy, David McCarthy, Head Girl, Shanté Jackson, Deputy Head Boys, Luke Abbess & Joshua Hill and finally Deputy Head Girls, Amber George & Charlotte Bailey.

The Day!

At the beginning of April, 14 successful candidates (including ourselves), set off for a gruelling days work at Itchen College to be assessed on our best qualities and traits which would make us suitable individuals for the position of Senior Prefect. The day began with a group activity in which we were observed on our strengths and ideas for the future of the school. We all showed common interests in wanting to improve our transition program in supporting Year 7 students upon arrival at TSTC. The interviews were intense and some of us were extremely nervous, but we all powered through and delivered an interview strong enough to gain us the positions we have today, and we even managed to get a selfie with the interview team at the end. The interview panel was made up of Mr Brown, Mr Evans and Mrs Drake.


When organising events, we aim to raise funds towards three main charities that are close to us as well as the wider community, which will be decided at a later date, although we are open to any suggestions you may have.

Our Ideas

As a team, our main ideas are as follows, each member of the head team has shown interest in different areas of improvement although they all share common ground. We have stated our visions below:

1. Improve rewards system

2. Pride and success emphasised more throughout the school

3. Improvements to the current school apps to improve communication between the school and parents

4. A new peer mentor system

5. Further revision systems in place

We hope to implement many positive changes throughout the school and community and we hope to hear from many of you over the next year.
