    Published 09/11/20



    After a rigorous selection process involving applications and interviews, we have selected four Post 16 students on to the Post 16 Student Leadership team. The following students have being selected:

    Head Girl: Amelia Bassnett

    Head Boy: Nasim Sherif

    Deputy Head Girl: Ellen Boakye

    Deputy Head Boy: Mohammed Hejaaji

    Congratulations to all four students. They will act as Ambassadors for President Kennedy moving forward through an extremely uncertain period. They have also highlighted projects they would like to undertake both within school and in the wider community (restrictions permitting) and this will involve working with college councils across the whole school. They will also run Post 16 College Council meetings and represent the student body as a whole. I know they will do a fantastic job.
