Candidates submitted written applications before being interviewed by school governor Marian Proudfoot, assistant head Dan Mather, current head boy and head girl Ethan McFadzean-Griffiths and Amy Walker, and head teacher, Paul Walker.

Mr Walker said: “The quality of the applications we received were superb, and the interviews were outstanding. We are all looking forward to working with the students in their new roles.”
