Head Girl Speech 2018

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I have been a student at this school for at least ten years.

I used to be a very shy person with school simply flashing before my eyes. But now I can clearly see the good the school does.

This school is quite small and for me that’s just what I need. GCSEs are not a walk in the park, but with thanks to the teachers I am never lacking a challenge to improve in my subjects and test my knowledge. And you don’t fade into the background, this meant I could build really helpful connections with the teachers so I can get the support I need in lessons so that I do not become overwhelmed.

The teacher’s advice has been invaluable during assemblies and on an individual level.

Altogether this meant I could get to where I am today, speaking in public and believing that it is possible to reach the grades I need.
