New Head Boy and Girl

With record numbers joining the School this year the new Head Boy and Girl will be busy supporting the Headmaster and staff in ensuring that every pupil feels welcome and settled in their new environment.

Zoe Evans from Rowton and Tom King from Northwich, have taken the roles as this years Head Girl and Head Boy. These appointments are particularly challenging since there are now 620 pupils at the School, ranging from 7 to 18 years.

Having joined the School in Year 5, Zoe is in her 9th year at the School whilst Tom joined in the Sixth Form from St. Nicholas High School, Hartford, Cheshire. Both of them have experienced and enjoyed many of the opportunities which have been on offer during their time at Ellesmere College. Zoe commented, I have loved all the choices which I have made over the years, like the Duke of Edinburgh Award activities and all the sports on offer. During the recent summer holidays, I participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award canoeing expedition to Canada and attended the Woodard Prefects leadership course. I am delighted to return for my last year at Ellesmere as Head Girl and look forward to helping lead the School during a significant period of expansion in our pupil base.

Whilst studying for their A levels and keeping focused on their goals to gain places at the University of their choice, along with their group of supporting prefects, Zoe and Tom will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and learn to conduct meetings with their peers as well as teachers. Zoe, who is taking A levels in Biology, Business Studies and Geography, is planning to study Business at University. She is a keen sportswoman, playing in the 1st Hockey, Netball and Tennis Teams. Zoe is also a talented pianist and working towards Grade 8.  Tom is studying for A-levels in Biology, Chemistry, and History.  Tom is also a talented rugby player.

As well as helping younger pupils to integrate smoothly into the Schools community, with a number of new local and international pupils into the Sixth Form studying the International Baccalaureate syllabus, one of Zoe and Toms more significant tasks will be to develop a rapport with pupils of all ages to ensure they are approachable. Tom added, Both Zoe and I have been very happy at Ellesmere and over the coming year I feel it is an important part of my role to help ensure that others, younger and new to the School, feel the same. 

At the forthcoming Open Day on Saturday 9th October, between 1pm and 4pm, Zoe and Tom will be leading the group of School prefects as they guide families around the School.
