Head Girl & Boy
The Primary Head Boy and Girl are selected every year by the Head of Primary in consultation with Primary teachers. Two students from Year 6 are chosen based on their demonstration of the Learner Profile Attributes, their commitment to their learning and their leadership skills. The Primary Head Boy and Girl are given specific roles throughout the Year, including speaking in assembly, leading the PY Student Council and meeting with guests who visit the school.
The Head Boy and Head Girl roles are a prestigious opportunity for students in Year 12. The role counts towards CAS requirements for the IB Diploma and provides students with experience in a leadership role, which universities look favourably upon when looking at applicants. Year 12 students can earn this role through an application letter and interview with the Headmaster and the Secondary Management team. The Head Girl and Head Boy help out at parental information evenings and provide the student perspective. They also manage the student council and are the ‘voice’ of the secondary student body, evaluating student proposals and initiatives. This provides them with valuable management experience – setting agendas, time management, minuting meetings and appraising student ideas for cost, health and safety, staff and resources required and how compatible student proposals are with Ascot’s values and mission. Additionally, they manage the school prefects, who are Year 10 students who have volunteered to help teachers supervise at break and lunchtimes.
