Megan

Year 11 Head Prefect
Back

I have been able to grow and develop the leadership qualities which I know will be the foundations on which the skills I will learn in the future will be built upon.

Hello! My name is Megan, I am in Year 11 and the current Head Girl here at All Saints Academy.

I am incredibly proud of my school, it has moulded me as a person and has given me endless opportunities to learn, grow and shine. Outside of school I partake in activities like ballroom dancing, which I have now been doing for a little over 12 years. Before I made the transition from Primary to Secondary school 4 years ago, I was a shy and quiet person lacking in self-confidence, often reluctant to put my hand up in lessons and answer questions. However, the kind, caring and Christian atmosphere which is present in every aspect of life at All Saints gave me the confidence I needed. I now love to contribute in my favourite subjects such as History, where we learn about everything from the ins and outs of medieval crime and punishment to the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and Spanish where I am able to use my brain to problem solve and think differently, in order to learn a new language. The wonderful thing about All Saints, is that there is something for everybody – from fantastic sports facilities to History Debate Club, everyone is given the opportunity to individually excel and reach their fullest potential.

I have been on an incredible journey throughout my time here at All Saints where I have changed and grown so much since being that tiny Year 7 who first walked through the gates: nervous, scared, excited and oh so ready to learn. Through the endless amounts of Student Leadership opportunities which are available, such as English and Reader Leaders, as well as Maths and Peer Mentors, I have been able to grow and develop the leadership qualities which I know will be the foundations on which the skills I will learn in the future will be built upon.

Becoming a prefect has forever been a long standing dream as I have wanted to give back to the school which has given me so much and now, it is this honour, which I am lucky enough to have been given. Throughout these past 4 years, I have always admired the Year 11 prefects who have walked the halls before me now and I feel privileged to be in their position this year. However, there is so much more to being a prefect than a fancy tie and badge. I believe that as prefects it is your responsibility within the school community, to embody and inspire the same welcoming and comforting environment that our school naturally possesses.

My position as Head Girl will allow me to improve upon my resilience and work on problem solving skills which will not only be useful in later life but also academically in my studies. I cannot think of a greater role than this which will help me become a lifelong learner and leader and help our school community grow and shine further in the future.
