Gabrielle Dickson – Head Girl
It is a huge privilege to have been selected for the role I have aspired to fulfil since joined KNGS in Year 7, and an even bigger privilege to be given an opportunity to make a difference as Head Girl.
‘To flourish’ is a core value at Kings Norton Girls’ School and I believe it is our school that has driven me to do just that. From remarkable teachers, preceding head girls, to my own grandmother who attended the school in 1944, KNGS has done nothing but inspire me. By providing such excellent role models, I believe the school encourages students to be more motivated and optimistic about what we can achieve in our own futures. A prime example is the advice given to me by the previous head girl, who assured me I had the ability to achieve any goal I set myself, if I put my mind to it. She helped improve my self-belief and confidence resulting in me changing my approach to studying and seeing an improvement in my grades. At KNGS we are all encouraged to take the opportunities on offer to us. The atmosphere of Kings Norton Girls’ School & Sixth Form is one of a safe and caring family due to the amount of extra time, effort and care the teachers and staff put in.
As Head Girl I want to give back to the school community that has given me so much. Through my personal experience at KNGS, I aim to provide guidance and encouragement to help other students along their journey. I also want represent the students by listening and being their voice in order to provide insight and ideas into how we as a student body think we can continue to change the school for the better.
Daniel Joseph – Head Boy
I feel humbled to be given the role as Head Boy in Kings Norton Sixth Form. Joining Kings Norton Sixth Form in September 2018 from Kings Norton Boys’ School, I was able to transition easily into Sixth Form life and felt well supported in this journey by the KNGS staff . The support available to us as students, especially when joining KN6 from other schools helps make everybody feel included in the Sixth Form community. Teachers and staff invest a lot of time and effort into student’s wellbeing as well as ensuring we all get the best grades we can.
I am honoured to be Head Boy and the opportunities it gives me to represent students from across the whole school, their voice and ideas on how we can develop our school community.
