Year 11/Senior House Prefect (Cuthbert House)
I have always found All Saints a welcoming and friendly environment with lots of kind and supporting groups along with understanding teachers.
My name is Abigail, I am in year 11 and I am currently the Head Prefect for Saint Cuthbert House. Outside of school I like to participate with an all-girls under 16 rugby team at Aklam Rugby Club, as well as helping with a learn-to-swim course for young children at Thornaby Amateur Swimming Club. But my favourite thing to do is creative makeup, doing many collaborations online with other makeup artists around the world.
I have always found All Saints a welcoming and friendly environment with lots of kind and supporting groups along with understanding teachers. Science has always been an interest of mine as there are lots of fun experiments and interesting topics to learn about. I also chose to take Food in GCSE which involves making meals, learning about different diets and the science behind different cooking techniques. Another subject I like is Maths as it is both challenging and useful for my future aspirations. Additionally, I think that there are lots of opportunities in the school to do what you enjoy, for example in sport there are lots of different equipment sets for a variety of sports, so you can try a lot of the sports you may enjoy.
I have always wanted to be a prefect since year 7 because I always saw students in prefect ties and I looked up to them. I also think the challenges and responsibilities I will face as a prefect throughout this year will help me to grow as a person for later in life. I think that my role as Head of Saint Cuthbert will help me be more: resilient, due to any challenges I might face; collaborative when working with other Head Prefects; creative when thinking of new ideas; confident in speaking to a group of people and a better leader when organising activities. Moreover, I would love to help make sure the students in Cuthbert House feel comfortable and welcomed.
At All Saints there are lots of opportunities for student leadership. I have been involved with both English and Science leadership both including different responsibilities. For English leaders we would have to create knowledge organisers and organise books for the younger years. For Science, I helped out with year 7 Science Club where they could be involved in small experiments and tasks that they would not normally get the chance to experience within lesson time.
