Meet our Head Boy

    Jason Lee

     

    Jason is studying Travel and Tourism and has been at the school since Year 9.

     

    Why did you want to become Head Boy?

    I wanted to become the Head Boy to give back to the school after being given a range of opportunities, this was also to help continue to events that have happened previously and bring in some new ideas.

     

    What does your role involve?

    My role as the Head Boy is to listen to my peers and see what events can be planned. I have been part of the allocation of duties to the prefects, ensuring that the prefect team members are supporting the Academy.

     

    What are your personal strengths?

    I would say my personal strength is my ability to see a challenge and approach it in different ways. I am proud of my ability to listen to my peers and find out what people think. I try to help others and resolve issues quickly.

     

    What do you see as the strengths of All Saints Academy?

    I see the Academy having the strength of staff who want to see the students succeed. With the changes in the school in the past 18 months, the staff have remained to a high standard and want to see as many of us get to university as possible.

     

    What has been the highlight of your time at All Saints Academy?

    The highlight of my time in the Academy has been the winter trip to London, this allowed me to go and see a West End show and since then I’ve had the bug! The trip gave me the confidence to go to the capital on my own, where previously I wouldn’t have been able to go alone.

     

    What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

    I have enjoyed studying Travel and Tourism and have considered applying for university via UCAS or the Open University. I have had to overcome many challenges recently so although my career path is not fully decided, I know that I have enough skills to ensure I’m happy in my future and can contribute as a meaningful member of society.

     

    As Head Boy, what kind of legacy would you like to leave at All Saints Academy?

    As the Head Boy I would like to leave a legacy that students can see there was a difference made and people know why. I want Sixth Form students to aspire to be Head Boy or Girl and try to work their hardest, knowing that there is a team of teaching staff to support you on the journey.


     

    Meet our HEAD Girl

    Shannon Stack

     

    Shannon is studying Business, Psychology, ICT and EPQ and has been at the school since Year 9.

    Why did you want to become Head Girl?

    I aspired to become Head Girl as I wanted to be a role model within the school community. I wanted to make a change within the Academy and create more of a positive learning environment. Becoming Head Girl was more than just a title to me; I really embraced the responsibilities and aimed to build up a lot of my personal skills, such as: communication, time-management, organisation and public speaking. When taking on the role of Head Girl I was also thinking of the beneficial factors it would have on my future, including my UCAS application as well as CV.

    What does your role involve?

    My role as Head Girl gives me significant responsibilities and therefore my time has to be efficient. Activities such as organising events and leading a prefect team are very rewarding. Also within my role I interview new members of staff as well as provide Academy tours. I represent Sixth Form in many ways and always offer students advice and support.

    What are your personal strengths?

    I’m a motivated, driven individual who always strives to succeed. I thrive when learning new things and facing new challenges. I’m organised and have a clear vision of what I want to achieve in various tasks. Being that I have a heavy workload of subjects it’s vital that I have good time management skills to balance my priorities evenly. Furthermore through doing an internal work placement within the Academy with a member of senior leadership I gained communication skills.

    What do you see as the strengths of All Saints Academy?

    I’ve really enjoyed my time here at All Saints Academy. Since being in the Sixth Form I’ve had a completely different experience to school life. Being part of a smaller Sixth Form has many benefits, one being that you get more of a ‘one on one’ support from teachers. Also we are more of a tight community as ‘everyone knows everyone’. In regard to the Academy the strengths that are prominent to me are the levels of engagement, we’ve had many enrichment days which have been successful and bring the whole school together.

    What has been the highlight of your time at All Saints Academy?

    The highlight of my time here at All Saints has been leading Student Voice. It has been a great experience to get involved with many years within the Academy, from organising charity events to running weekly meetings, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed leading such a great group of individuals.

    What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

    My ambitions for the future are to progress in to higher education and study at University. I hope to undergo a Business Management degree as well as Masters and pursue a career in industry. Eventually I would like to become a teacher to give back all the opportunities I was given and share my passion for Business with others.

    As Head Girl, what kind of legacy would you like to leave at All Saints Academy?

    I hope people remember me as hard working, committed and a motivated person who was always been happy to help others. I’ve always hoped to inspire others to work hard and stay focused. Additionally, I hope to leave many successful traits and leadership setups like prefects behind for the next Head Girl to continue.
