During these strange times, things have been slightly different with most forms of life, school in particular! The same applies to our new inductions of Head Boy & Girl for the next academic year. Normally, we would see current Y10 students producing manifestos and pitching these in assemblies to all year groups over the course of a week. This year we cannot do that for obvious reasons, so we have a new exciting plan…

Before the end of term, the student body will appoint The Farnley Academy’s new Head Boy & Girl for 2020/21. Those who have this wonderful ambition will produce their manifesto and submit it to Mr Harding. He will then work closely with senior leaders to carefully select the candidates to proceed to the voting stage. Year 10 students have a video and some additional helpful resources located in their Student Shared area to assist them with their applications.

Students have until Friday the 3rd July to submit their manifesto to [email protected] – for the attention of Mr Harding. This tight turnaround is to ensure that all students have the opportunity to vote.

Voting will then open on Tuesday 7th July for the whole school via an online google document, which again will be placed on the Student Resources area. This will close on Tuesday 14th July. There is also an option for those without internet access to call school and place their vote.

The announcement of the new Head Boy & Girl 20/21 will be on Thursday 16th July, so watch this space for what is sure to be an exciting time for our new Head Boy & Girl inductees!

Mr B Harding
