We are delighted to announce Ronnie (pictured, below) as the new School Captain for 2021-21. During his time at the school Ronnie has been involved in a wide range of activities, with CCF, Duke of Edinburgh, working as part of the school's outreach programme and fundraising (through his cycling to Paris) just a few of the things he has been involved with. He has an excellent record and has embodied the school's motto non sibi sed omnibus throughout his time at the school. His record of service to the school was a significant factor in his selection, as was his humility and good-humour.
The selection process for School Captain is a rigorous one. Letters of application are carefully assessed alongside a range of other factors, culminating in an interview with the Head and Director of Sixth Form. Our congratulations go to Ronnie and to his team of five Deputy School Captains (banner photo, above), six House Captains, sixteen Senior Prefects and fifty-one Duty Prefects who will together make a formidable Prefect Team. They will receive their ties of office in a formal school assembly as soon as possible.
While we welcome the new team, we must also say our thanks and a fond farewell to Alec and his team who have been a model of excellence over the course of the past year, even though many of their opportunities for public recognition have been denied by circumstance. They have been true role models to the student body and have performed their duties efficiently and with kindness, thanks in no small part to the hard work and strong leadership of the outgoing School Captain.
