Student Voice

It has been a very short half term, but our Student Voice team played a key role in the recent process to recruit a new Executive Headteacher. An interview panel, made up of Form Reps from Years 7 to 9 along with Student Voice Leaders from Years 10 and 11 were joined by two fantastic Year 3s from Twynham Primary School and students from The Grange and our own Head Boy and Girl from the Sixth Form. The team met to decide upon suitable questions to ask the candidates and they then delivered these questions to each candidate on the interview day itself, observed by a group of senior staff and governors.

At the end of the interviews, the team discussed the positives and areas for development for each candidate and gave their feedback to the adults present. Pleasingly, the overall opinions fitted very closely with those of the other interview panels and, although no suitable candidate went forward to the second day of interviews, the experience was incredibly valuable. This team will reconvene when the recruitment process begins again.

Panel 2

Finally for this half term, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our Year 11 Student Voice Leaders for all their hard work and dedication over the past few years. By the time this article is published, their GCSEs will be well underway and we wish them good luck. We are currently recruiting three boys and three girls from Year 9 to join our Student Voice Leadership team for 2017-18 – these will be those students who have shown real promise in student leadership in the past twelve months.

As always, if you have any great ideas of how you (with our help) could make Twynham even better – let us know!  Email us – studentvoice@twynhamschool.comAnd if you are 13+, please follow us on Twitter!
