The Senior Students play an important role in the life of our school and Sixth Form. The Senior Students are elected by both students and staff and are ambassadors for The King Edward VI School. Your Senior Students for 2020-2021 are:
Susu Anitche – Head Girl
The subjects I am studying are Spanish, Drama and English Language
My ambition after Sixth Form is to either study Spanish at university or to do a Media/Broadcast Journalism Apprenticeship (which I would prefer!)
My interests are baking, music, video-games and anything movie related.
I want to be a senior student because I wanted to challenge myself and do something that I hadn’t done before while also having a positive effect on the school in the last year that I have.
My advice to current year 11’s is don’t stress over situations that you can’t control, you’re just putting yourself through the pain twice.
One of my favourite mottos/quotes is “the greatest glory in living lies not in never falling but in rising every time we fall” by Nelson Mandela.
Ellie Cape – Deputy Head Girl
The subjects I am studying are History, French, Drama
My ambition after Sixth Form is to study History at university.
My interests are gymnastics, drama, watching musicals/theatre, and cooking
I want to be a senior student because I love communicating with different people and being part of a team to work towards something.
My advice to current year 11’s is don’t get too worked up about exams and try to find the joy in a stressful time – even though it can sometimes be hard.
One of my favourite mottos/quotes is “knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” by Aristotle
Niall Murtagh – Head Boy

My ambition after Sixth Form is to complete a degree in History and Politics
My interests are football, TV, film, football, the news, Middlesbrough Football Club
I want to be a senior student because I genuinely enjoy the school environment and appreciate the chance to contribute in a meaningful way
My advice to current year 11’s is retain consistency in your work-life balance and don’t panic
One of my favourite mottos/quotes is… ‘Don’t be afraid to have dreams… If you work hard enough and you’re not afraid to dream then you’re not afraid to fail.
I’m not afraid to fail. Everybody fails. I have had more failures than I’ve had success.’ by… Chris Coleman after Wales reached the semi finals of Euro 2016
Josh Williams – Deputy Head Boy
The subjects I am studying are Physics, Maths, Further Maths
My ambition after Sixth Form is to study Mechanical Engineering at University.
My interests are maths, trains, going on walks, travelling, and watching movies.
I want to be a senior student because I really enjoy public speaking and organising events.
My advice to current year 11’s is to chill. Remember that getting worried or stressing won’t affect the outcome of your exams. What helped me was listening to music, and doing revision outside in the fresh air.
One of my favourite mottos/quotes is “Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.” Matthew 6:34
