Why did you want to become Head Boy?
I wanted to become Head Boy because I knew that I could relate to my other peers and that I could try and put their views across in a way that they would want me too. I also wanted to be able to go out one day in the future and say that I was able to represent this school well.
What does your role involve?
My role involves:
Chairing the meetings of the school council, where I discuss trips and interview staff etc.
Showing visitors around the school and choosing two students for student of the week.
What are your personal strengths?
My personal strengths are that I am very patient and persistent, but also that there aren’t many people I don’t get on with, which is the most important I feel that you need to have that quality when you have a responsibility like this one, if not you’re doing something wrong because you should know the people you are speaking for.
What do you see as the strengths of Falconer School?
I think that I would say the helpfulness of the school, as the teachers are always trying to get the best out of your education no matter what difficulties you have.
What has been the highlight of your time at Falconer School?
I have many, I wouldn’t be able to pick out a certain day, but I would say most of it would be in Form with my friends or with School House where I feel we have quite a family like environment. But the days I REALLY loved were our annual visits to park and seeing everybody getting on with one another, even if they don’t get along, also watching Alex Berry flying off a zip wire!
What are your plans and ambitions for the future?
I hope to go on and take an A level in English and I feel like with the help from the staff and if I stay focused on my education I will get there. And my main goal has always been since Year 7 to come back here and help kids the same way I was helped.
As Head Boy, what kind of legacy would you like to leave at Falconer?
A legacy I would like to leave at Falconer is that everyone will have fun in their time in Falconer and that I hopefully helped them to have that fair share of fun in their life because your time here should be treasured.

Mainly to set an example but also to participate in council meetings and sometimes tors of the school.
What are your personal strengths?
I would say everything but then I would be lying through my teeth. Really though I would say my art is one of my more realistic strengths.
What do you see as the strengths of Falconer School?
The trips they do every term or two because the trips have a bronze silver and gold and because i behave I get gold so we end up going to 4DX cinema or thought park which is great.

The trips.

I hope to work in some sort of art related job.
