Each year, the Head Girl and Head Boy play an important role in the life of the school. They serve as role models for our younger pupils, act as ambassadors, and support the practical functioning of the school in a variety of ways. Our current Head Girl and Boy, Emilie and Silas, have been very busy since first taking their post, serving at the Leaver’s Service, helping to run activities at the Year 7 induction afternoon, and giving a tour of the Senior School and speaking about their experiences during the Information Evening for Year 5 and 6 parents. During the October Open Morning, Emilie and Silas also gave speeches to prospective parents and served as guides along with the other Student Council members. They are also part of the Senior Council and meet with the Deputy Head regularly.
Head Girl Emilie
I was delighted to be chosen as Head Girl this year, which has given me the chance to give back to my school which I have been part of over the last twelve years. This term, I have hugely enjoyed running a football club for those in the Junior school, enabling me to share my passion with others. Heritage has really helped me see the joy that small year groups give, where I am able to get to know those who are not so close to me in age, which is really precious. As well as playing football in my spare time, I also love playing my violin and reading. I hope that in the rest of my final year at Heritage, I will be able to help sustain the atmosphere of community we have in our school in which all pupils are able to flourish.
Head Boy Silas
I feel hugely privileged to be Head Boy this academic year and to serve my school through this role. Having joined Heritage in Upper Prep, I have really appreciated the opportunity to participate in the diverse range of sports offered to Infants, Juniors and Seniors. Exposure to a variety of team sports has allowed me to develop as a team player as well as an individual athlete. It’s been amazing leading the Senior Running Club with the Deputy Head and having such a nice group of runners from across the year groups, watching them improve as athletes, as well as getting to know them. In addition to running, I enjoy table tennis, chess and Art. I am interested in how things work, particularly those relating to the physical sciences. I hope to study Engineering at university and perhaps contribute to making our world greener.
