Head Students & Senior Prefects

Hi, my name is Alex Thornton and I have recently been appointed as a Head Student here at Lostock Hall Academy. First let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a very enthusiastic, proactive person that likes to take part in sporting activities and I am also a keen scientist. My hobbies include motocross racing and jujitsu.

The application process for becoming a Senior Prefect started halfway through 2018, when the application for being a Prefect was launched. For this application process, we had to write a formal letter to Principal Gorman about our past achievements and qualities. After this, the newly appointed 55 Prefects got put to work immediately around school. Next, the application for Senior Prefect/ Head Student was launched. For this, another letter of application was required. Principal Gorman, Miss Flynn read the letters and formed a consensus. Staff were consulted to help sort the 33 Senior Prefect applications into 12 potential candidates that would be interviewed.

After an intensive interview these 12 candidates were narrowed down to the 4 Senior Prefects and 2 Head Students. Together we will be working to bring the students of Lostock Hall Academy closer together to work as a team, to be the best they can be.

I am Holly Cook and I am thrilled to have been chosen as Head Student for the 2018/2019 school year. As a keen actress I am involved with productions in and out of school and I am also very involved in the music department. I am excited to begin to implement student ideas for the academy.

I would also like to introduce our four Senior Prefects who will be working alongside us:

Megan Wilson who is a committed and talented dancer
Harry Hodgson, a drummer for a local well-known band PR5,
Oliver Grimes, an anti-bullying ambassador for the school
Joel Hodgson a knowledgeable Geographer.

We all intend to work together to help make school an even better place than it already is.
