Two A level students at Thomas Clarkson Academy, Wisbech, have been named as head boy and head girl for the coming year.
Year 12 student Akshay Kishor and Elizabeth Baker, who is in Year 13, have been given the prestigious roles.
Sally Wilcher, head of Student Voice at Thomas Clarkson Academy, said: “There was an outstanding field of applicants for both positions.
“Both impressed me with their vision for the future and the role they wanted to play in making this happen.
“They approached their interviews with maturity and a positive outlook on leading a strong student voice within the academy.”
Akshay Kishor achieved 11 A*-C grade GCSEs, including A*s in biology, chemistry, physics and maths.
He is studying the three sciences and maths at A level and has a science degree in mind when he finishes Sixth Form.
He said: “I always wanted to be head boy and to help make the school the best it can be for the students so they can have the best possible experience at Thomas Clarkson.”
Elizabeth Baker is studying sociology, English and media at A Level and hopes to study fashion journalism at university.
She said: “I saw the poster and thought I would apply because I thought it would be a good experience.
“When I was in lower school we didn’t have head boys and girls so I wanted to apply now that the role is there.
“I’m looking forward to running meetings with staff and the student councils.”
