Vhea, Head Girl
My name is Vhea, and I am both proud and excited to represent Upton Hall as Head Girl. I am currently studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths with the aspiration of studying Economics at University.
I will work with the five Deputy Head Girls over the next academic year to embed our initiative, ‘Proud To Be Me’, into our school action plan. We hope to use our platform within the school to encourage young women to feel proud to be themselves.
My personal area of responsibility is to enhance the 'Here I Am’ Initiative which has been running in our school for two years, it is an initiative aimed at enhancing students’ confidence in contributing to discussions in and beyond lessons. I would like to develop the initiative so that students have the courage and confidence to contribute outside the classroom. I think it is important that, as young people, we should be inquisitive by constantly asking questions as well as actively seeking answers, as this is what will challenge us and help us to grow intellectually and as people. In order to stimulate a wave of confidence throughout the school, I plan to lead small talks and workshops to explore what sometimes prevents us from speaking up in a public setting and find ways to overcome these.
Amira, Deputy Head Girl
I am Amira and I delighted to be a Deputy Head Girl. I am studying Chemistry, Maths and English Literature and plan to go to University next year. Through The Head Girl’s Team action plan, I would like to introduce an enhanced "buddy system" for students in Years 12 and 13, in which each student from year 12 will be paired with a student from Year 13 in order to create a support network between the year groups. It is my aim that this network will enable new Year 12 students to settle quickly into Sixth Form life. This system will mean that we can learn from each in terms of becoming the ‘best version of ourselves’, whilst the support of one another will enhance our confidence in our ability to succeed in all aspects of life.
