Meet our School Captains
In 2020, four students Harry Daisley, Chloe Eames, Maisie Jamieson and Sophie Errington were, after a rigorous selection process including a digital speech and a staff/student vote, elected by the school community to be our School Captains.
Harry, an aspiring medical student, is really proud to be selected and says he is “keen to create a really robust, strong community within The Piggott School and think about how we can make the community stronger for everyone; teachers, students and parents.”
Coming from The Holt School only a year ago, Chloe felt honoured to be elected by staff and students and is keen to bring some new ideas and make a difference to school life. She believes this role will set them up well for years to come. “The opportunity to interact with different kinds of people to develop skills will be good for us in business because different groups will have different needs and wants that we need to address,” said Chloe.
Maisie has had this title in her sights since she started at The Piggott School in 2014, “I’m a leader and I knew this is what I wanted to do, and everything I’ve done has been leading up to this. I feel I’m quite fair and kind and I like to listen to the ideas of others. This role will definitely give us life skills and I feel older and more respected.”
Finally, Sophie is excited to put her leadership qualities into action, “I feel really proud to represent my school and ever since I came here in 2014 I have wanted to be in a position of leadership. All four of us have different qualities that will make us a really good team.”
Apart from a busy year ahead academically, the School Captains will work hard to fulfil the role, acting as the liaison between the student body and the rest of the school community. They will be expected to chair Student Council meetings and report back to the Governors about the activities taking place in each year group. All four were disappointed that they couldn't show students and parents around the Sixth Form this year, but they played a key role in the series of videos produced for the Sixth Form Open Evening available online now.
