Wolverhampton Grammar School’s new Head Boy and Girl has been announced. Congratulations to Will Beards and Mia Seager who are about to begin their final year with us in Upper Sixth.
Both Mia and Will have been students at the School since Year 7. They were a popular choice of both staff and students (staff and Sixth Form students vote for School Prefects and Head Boy and Girl every year) and had a tough final selection process to get through, including a formal interview with the Head, Kathy Crewe-Read.
Mia from Kingswinford and Will from Bridgnorth are familiar faces around School, appearing in Senior School productions and Music Concerts. Although drama and music are key interests, the students also enjoy swimming, reading, sport and film. Mia is also a Peer Supporter in School, offering trained counselling and support to younger students. She commented “I want every student to know that they can talk to me as a Peer Supporter and in my role as Head Girl about anything – whether it’s something they want to introduce in School, or if they are just worried about something or need a bit of extra support. That’s my role and I’m so proud to be part of this happy bubble that is Wolverhampton Grammar School.”
Will added “Wolverhampton Grammar School isn’t just a School, it’s part of me. It’s a special place where every student feels safe and protected. I feel honoured to be selected as Head Boy and know that the excellent team of Prefects around us will serve our community to the best of our ability.”
Will is also a first XI cricketer for the School and is keen for younger students to get involved in sport, or any extra curricular activities that will help them get the most out of School life and support their mental health too.
Kathy Crewe-Read, Head of Wolverhampton Grammar School said of the appointments “We are a lucky School to have both Will and Mia and their excellent team of Prefects. They both exemplify the very best of what a WGS student is – intelligent, thoughtful, approachable and of generous spirit. The embodiment of our community and I am very proud of them.”
Look out for Mia and Will or any of the School Prefects around School. You can identify them by their Prefect tie’s and for Senior School students, Mia and Will will be visible at your School Assemblies from September. They are both keen to add though that they are available and want to support students at any time during the School day – look out for them and say hello!
