Congratulations to Charlie Cronin and Charlotte Catterall who have been appointed Eaton Bank Academy Head Boy and Head Girl. The Year 12 students have already completed eight eventful months as Deputy Head Boy and Girl and are ready to take on the challenges ahead.
Charlotte who is studying Biology, Psychology, English Language and BTEC Sports Science, commented “I wanted to become Head Girl to make a noticeable difference to Eaton Bank Academy. Our role will involve weekly meetings with the Student Advocacy Team (SAT) where we discuss our thoughts and opinions on what our next projects are going to be. I am really looking forward to working with Mr O’Neill as headteacher, taking my ideas one step further and encouraging other students to get involved with SAT.”
New Head Boy Charlie is also delighted with his role in the school adding “I am really excited to take on the responsibly of being Head Boy. I hope the position will enable me to develop skills such as presenting to a large audience and communicating with a range of people. I consider the role to be an honour as you represent Eaton Bank Academy in the community. You also have the responsibility of representing the views of other students, so make sure you are always approachable and ready to listen.”
Charlie and Charlotte take over from George Aldington and Sarah Weatherby, who both made a huge contribution to school life during time as Head Boy and Head Girl. They have spoken at Open Evenings, organised charity fundraising events, represented the views of students to Mrs Webb and even volunteered to dress as the ‘bee’ at a Spelling Bee! George commented “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Head Boy and there are numerous highlights, but I am probably most proud of organising a film night, wrist band sale and non-uniform day which raised nearly £1000 for The Teenage Cancer Trust.” George will now concentrate on his final exams, with the intention of studying Chinese and Spanish at The University of Edinburgh, whilst Sarah plans to study Mathematics at Keele University.
