Head Students

2020-2021

William Hill, Jessica Howlett, Isabella McCreadie, Rosie Paternoster and Sam Smith were appointed following a rigorous application process and have already begun on a number of exciting projects.  Congratulations to all five Head Students and to all the applicants.  The school has a superb group of Year 11s, all of whom have many leadership qualities; it was a very difficult choice for the panel to make!  We all wish our New Head Students every success in their position of responsibility.

William-”As a head student, I strive to make the school as much of a positive experience as possible, by any means necessary. I will use your suggestions and ideas and attempt to implement and embed them into the school’s daily operations. Not only am I trying to create a difference in the school for the time I have in this position, but also attempt to prepare the next Head Students and Student leaders and have a lasting impact for years to come.”

Jessica-”I would like to make the school a much better place for the students that will still be here when I leave. My grades are good and I am trying my hardest to achieve what I can to get into college. Year 11 can be a difficult time but you just have to put your head down and remember that it is very important that you get the grades you deserve. I hope we all can change the school and make it better for all of you.”

Isabella-”As I reach my final year at Harwich and Dovercourt high school, I want to contribute as much as I can to the school’s progression and improvement for the children that come after me. I wish to be an approachable head student for both student and teachers alike and be a conduit for their thoughts and ideas to be communicated to the Senior leadership team. I want to be remembered in the school as someone who strives to uphold its values and be a positive role model for all.” 

Rosie-”As a head student I aspire to be a friendly leader who makes a difference in this school by working alongside my peers and other student leaders to make it a more welcoming and comfortable environment. I strive to improve weak areas and make positive changes to improve school for current students and those who may attend in the future as well.”

Samuel-”The main reason I wanted to become a student leader is because I wanted to make a positive impact on the school. By being a head student I can raise issues that many people may struggle with and help them fix the issue and prosper long after.”

Head Students 2019-2020

Huge congratulations to our new Head Students who were chosen from an excellent selection of candidates just before we broke up for Easter.

Harrison Hunt (Alhambra), Lecolleen Klaas (Heidelberg), Bailey Taylor (Versailles), Bobbi Jo Lindsell and Harry Pitham (both Windsor) have an exciting year ahead of them!  Their aim is to continue the work of the outgoing Head Students by representing the whole student body’s wishes.  Already plans are forming for projects around Year 6 to 7 transition, reducing litter, improving facilities and working for the good of Team-HDHS.  They will be an excellent Student Leadership Team and we all wish them well for the year ahead.

Head Students 2018-2019

Head students Alfie Benson, Evie Hawkins Clark, Mica Jones, Moesha Jordan and Lucy Hughes have set themselves ambitious targets this year and are already making huge strides towards achieving them (writes Mr Garnham in November).

With the support of Mrs Finch they have secured over £5000 of funding to improve outside seating facilities for students including benches and outside water fountains; they have set up and are running a lunch club for younger students; they have published their first newsletter and completed their first round of assemblies; they have already secured changes to PE uniform policy and are busily preparing for a Year 11 leavers book. And they have many more plans afoot based on listening to younger pupils.

This year looks set to be a record for the number of projects and initiatives being run by the student leadership council under Lucy’s, Moesha’s, Mica’s, Evie’s and Alfie’s guidance.

All of HDHS wishes the Head Students the very best with their ambitious plans.
