All pupils had a vote in a secret ballot.

The following students were elected: year 7, Sam Wilson, Sophie Mitten, Charlie Armiger; year 8, Gabriella Guymer-Davies, Maria Seago, Zachary Burbridge; year 9, Robert Mabee, Callum Smiles, Abigail Fitt, Rebecca Smith; year 10, Esme Arnott, Alice Bruce, Jack Rolph, Georgie Hoare.

Charlie Armiger, 12, said: “I am very pleased to be elected and I hope to make some real changes.” Sophie Mitten, 12, said: “I want to make the school an even better place.”

Angela Crawley, who organised the event, said: “There is a real buzz among the children the week before and building up to the day itself.

“It is hectic but very enjoyable and a very valuable lesson in citizen-ship.”
