Meet the Senior Team
Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputies Team for 2023-24
We have a new senior team to take us through to 2024.
The new team are –
David- A-Level Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry
I have a great enthusiasm for maths and the sciences, so I always knew I wanted to go into engineering. My subject choices reflect my current interests, and my future career ambitions.
My appointment as Head Senior Student really excites me. By working with my team, staff, and students across the school, I aim to make a positive contribution to life at TBSHS, that will benefit students many years down the line. Having seen the impact previous senior teams have had, I believe my team and I can make changes that not only help the current students, but also make TBSHS a more exciting and welcoming place for prospective students. With exciting changes around the corner, I hope to be able to play a part in the transition to the new school site.
Brittany – A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Religious Studies
I always knew I wanted to go into the medical field hence my scientific subjects. But I wanted my last subject to explore different parts of my mind. After starting these courses I haven’t regretted it since.
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality” – Warren Bennis
“A leader…is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind” – Nelson Mandela
Two inspiring quotes that will shape my leadership agenda as Head Senior Student of TBSHS. I feel privileged and honoured to have been given the platform to do so.
This starts with ensuring that every student feels they have a voice and are valued within the school community.
I intend to work with the Senior Leadership Staff, Staff, Students and Sixth Form Management Team to enhance the already amazing traditions we have in place whilst also implementing innovative ideas that will hopefully put our school at a global stage, where our core values of commitment, aspiration, respect, integrity, and community sits at the heart of what we do.
I will promulgate, entrench, and epitomize a culture that reflects the true spirit of TBSHS- respice, aspice, prospice.
Jemimah– A-Level Business Studies, Media Studies, Theatre Studies
I am both honoured and excited to take on this role as a member of the Senior Team. The opportunity of leading the Sixth Form Council allows me to listen to my peers and make improvements. I aim to contribute to the wider school community and follow in the footsteps of the previous Senior Teams, whilst introducing new ideas.
Isabel – A-Level Environmental science, Geography and Maths
My responsibilities as Deputy Senior Student means I marshal school events and marketing, which I am thoroughly looking forward to. One opportunity I am especially excited for is heading the launch of TBSHS Sixth Form social media this year and the enjoyment and challenges this will bring. I aim to represent the school well and implement new ideas into the school day, whilst collaborating with the Sixth Form Management Team, staff and students.
Alex– A-Level History, Politics and English Literature
I am extremely enthused and honoured to be taking on the role of Deputy Senior Student for the coming year. In my role as head of the Admissions and Alumni team I hope to make prospective students and teachers feel welcome here by giving them an insight into what it’s like to be part of this amazing ‘Black and Gold’ community which offers so much to all who are a part of it. But wider than this, I hope to improve the experiences of both lower school and sixth form students by creating a more environmentally friendly space for us to share.
Will – A-Level Politics,History and Maths
Being appointed as Deputy Senior Student in the new senior team is a great honour. Since joining TBSHS I have always seen previous senior students as Black and Gold role models who put themselves out there to improve the experience for all at this school. I will make it my utmost priority to ensure that this legacy is carried on, and that all students feel pride in being part of the community. As head of the Sixth Form Committee, I hope to create long-lasting memories of times at the school, which will ensure that all students feel a sense of belonging to what is a truly excellent school.
Dan – A-Level German, Economics and English Literature
I’ve always had an aim to join the financial sector, whilst also having a passion for exploring different cultures. Therefore my choices of A levels seemed the only suitable combination of all my interests.
