Cara will lead Newton. Cara is a fantastic ambassador for girl's sport and physical activity. She is a talented games player, a keen footballer and basket baller but can apply herself successfully to any sporting activities. Cara has also represented the school in swimming, athletics, netball and rounders. Cara is well liked by her peers and is an excellent role model for the younger girls in PE. Her sense of humour and down to earth nature make her instantly likeable - making it easy for her to develop meaningful relationships with the pupils she inspires. She plays every game she participates in with a determined, tenacious attitude and encourages all pupils that she comes into contact with, to perform to the best of their abilities. Cara is studying GCSE PE and applies the same tenacious attitude to achieving good academic grades. She is a school prefect, highlighting the need to show perfect conduct both on and off the sports field.
Megan will lead Shakespeare house. Megan is a naturally talented all rounder. She has represented the school at a huge amount of fixtures and competitions including netball, swimming, rounders and athletics. She is a particularly gifted swimmer and dancer. She has given up much of her own time at lunchtimes, after school and during lessons leading dance in PE lessons, primary swim sessions and primary open days In addition to her practical ability, Megan's real strengths lie in her academic studies; she has set herself exceptionally high standards academically and performs well in all subjects across the school curriculum. She understands that her studies are as important as her sports performance and balances her study and physical activity perfectly in order to get the best out of both. We hope that she will be able to encourage the pupils in her house to have the same exemplary attitude to school life.
