We are Felicity and Luke, the Head Girl and Head Boy at Madeley School.
As Nelson Mandela stated: `education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ and during our time at Madeley School we have cerainly come to believe that this is true. The school has been through many changes during our journey but one thing that has remained consistent: the studetns are placed at the very centre of our school community.
Despite the difficulties and time pressures of developing new curriculum approaches, preparing us for rigorous GCSE examinations and enabling us to participate in extra-curricular activities, we know that our teachers value every student as an individual and strive to support us in achieving our full potential in an encouraging and nuturing environment. We place our trust in the excellent practitioners who facilitate our learning at Madeley School and we know that our future is bright thanks to those who are guiding our way and empowering us to achieve all that we are capable of.
The student body work seamlessly alongside staff to uphold the core values of the school: pride and respect, confidence, resilience, aspiration, positivity, enjoyment and politeness. As Head Girl and Head Boy, we are supported by a united prefect team who are actively involved in school life and who take their responsibilities and priviledged position in the school very seriously, we are aware that we all act as role models for the rest of the school and each of us are truly honoured to have our titles.
We aim to provide a link between the students and staff in order to make sure that Madeley School creates the best learning experiences it can through ensuring that the voices of our school are heard. This way everyone is able to thrive in the secure and community focussed environment.
Our ambition for our final year at Madeley School is to create a place where everyone feels welcome and hear; a place where the transition from primary to secondary school is simple and comfortable; a place where staff and students work as one to guarantee the best learning setting. We will do this by making sure that we are seen as part of the student body and are willing to act on their behalf. As we are chairing our School Council (Madeley Parliament) together we can assure pupils that their own opinion will be listened to and each and every one of them can make a difference to Madeley School.
