A new Head Team has been appointed for the 2019/20 academic year - with mental health and the environment among the issues set out as priorities for the year ahead.
Yuvraj Bhagotra has been given the position of Head Boy, with Emily Longman chosen as Head Girl. Daksh Sharma and Tash Morrison will take on the roles of Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl respectively.
Students who exemplify good behaviour, grades and attendance are chosen to be part of the Head Team, responsible for setting an example for other stu- dents and serving as leaders in school activities.
Emily said she was delighted to have been chosen for her role.
She added: “I am both honoured and excited to have been given the role of Head Girl. I am eager to work with the rest of the team, as well as the wholestudent body, so we can make Highfields the best it can be.
“My main focus for this year, as well as helping to organise events such as the Sixth Form prom and The Social, will be to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health and to improve the school’s efforts to become more environmentally friendly. I am eager to carry on working hard in the year ahead.”
Mr S Pycroft, Head of Sixth Form, said: “I am sure I speak on behalf of all colleagues in wishing the Head Team good luck in their respective positions.”
