I feel incredibly grateful to have been given the opportunity to represent Barnsley Academy as a Head Student and I am proud to speak for all the students at my school. I have hopes that my school will continue to provide an engaging learning environment for all students with minimal disruptions so that everyone can thrive and develop within the Academy.
I hope that all pupils at Barnsley Academy strive for exciting opportunities within the school, such as taking part in extra-curricular activities, for example sports teams and dance competitions, and I hope that the school will continue to support students with their interests.
I go into my school, and I’m surrounded by individuals full of potential. I know that many of them will go onto to do amazing things with the lessons they have learnt at Barnsley Academy. As a Head Student, I hope that other students look to me as their voice in the school if they have any concerns or suggestions; I am their advocate and if something needs to change, so that the school can progress, I am committed to working with them and our staff to drive improvement.
Barnsley Academy is the perfect school for any child in our community, as staff cater for everyone’s needs and get to know every student on a personal level. I have taken part in a recent open day and proudly spoke for my school; I encouraged parents to choose the Academy for their child because I know how much the school will care for each individual and help them towards their future.
My personal aspirations are to attend sixth form college and achieve A-levels before going on to a top university to study at degree level. It is the belief and support of the staff at Barnsley Academy that have given me the confidence to pursue these goals.
