New Student Leaders Appointed

Following a fantastic day of interviews, we are delighted to announce that we have successfully appointed our Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputies and Senior Leadership team for the next academic year.  Mr Baxter-Smallwood stated that it was his ‘favourite day of the school year’ having the privilege to listen to the views, opinions and visions of our impressive Year 10 students.  All of the Head Boy and Head Girl applicants had to deliver a presentation followed by formal interview questions to the panel.  Every member of the panel remarked on how impressed and in awe they were with the number of achievements and individual honours and accolades received by our students. Every applicant presented excellently, and did themselves and the school proud, resulting in every student that was interviewed being offered a Senior Leadership position. Along with the other Senior Leadership applications, this gives Longdendale an extremely strong team of 22 students who will have a lasting impact upon our school, not only for the next 12 months whilst they are in Year 11, but going forward into what is a very exciting future for student leadership at Longdendale.  Headteacher, Andrea Jones, added “It is always such a wonderful privilege to see the commitment of our young people to Longdendale and to hear all of their ideas for how we can work together to improve things further.  I am so proud of all of their achievements and how they have made the most of every opportunity offered to them during their time in school.  They are fantastic ambassadors for our school and our community, and I am looking forward to working with them all over the coming months in their leadership roles.”
