Student Senior Team
As Denmark Road High School's Senior Student Team we would like to welcome you to our school website!
We would like to introduce ourselves - Isobel, Chloe, Hanna, Eshaah, Millie-May and Luke. We are extremely excited to take on the role of Denmark Road, Head Students 2020/21.
As hard-working members of the Denmark Road community, it is our duty to act as a bridge between the staff and students of Denmark Road, and therefore, set an example to the rest of the school on how hard work, dedication and true grit can lead you to success. The selection process for the role is extremely rigorous and reflects the significance of the Head Student position. The senior team plays an important part in the school’s redevelopment and meets regularly with the Senior Leadership Team to contribute ideas and to to assist with the continued evolution of the school.
Although it’s been a challenging year, the senior team have ensured that they have continued to organise Covid Secure events. So far this year, we’ve organised a ‘bubbled’ year 12 and 13 benchball tournament, and a halloween dress-up day to raise money for the nominated 6th form charity ‘Amigos’. Events like these bring our sixth form community together and provide students with an opportunity to take a good break from work and promote wellbeing. The Head Students have also been involved in organising House Drama for the whole school, and we will also take the lead with organising the Year 13 prom.
As the school is experiencing many exciting changes we hope to help make these transitions for students and staff as seamless as possible by working with the Senior Team and frequently taking feedback from the rest of the pupils at Denmark Road though the ‘Your Voice’ student conferences. Denmark Road Sixth Form prioritises student wellbeing and works tirelessly to ensure students are supported in achieving their best possible outcomes.
Being a Sixth Form student at Denmark Road means experiencing a sense of belonging and purpose, therefore we aim to help fellow students express their individuality and develop their self confidence through the organisation of sport, social and musical events. It is our ambition for all students to achieve exam results as well as developing their skills outside of the classroom.
We are honoured to have been chosen to represent Denmark Road High School as Head Students. Studying at DRHS has been an amazing journey that seems to have gone so quickly, so for our final year here, we hope we can make the most of our time as part of the Senior Team and work to make everyone’s experience of Denmark Road High School as amazing as ours had been.
