The Head Student Team at Barnwell School play a vital role in the life of the school. They represent the students of the school to teachers, parents, governors and members of our community. They are required to speak to large and small groups of parents, students and teachers and to chair a range of meetings. They coordinate the Sixth Form Committee and the various sub-committees and need to bring all the information together to continually improve the life of sixth formers and the school community as a whole.
This year's Head Students are Jemima Orphanou and Jeremi Cevallos
My name is Jemimah Orphanou and I am Head Girl at Barnwell School. I have been a student at Barnwell since year 7. I’m currently in my last year of sixth form, studying ‘A’ level drama and CTEC Diploma Sport. I believe strongly in making a difference to the world and helping in anyway I can. My future pathway is not yet definitive as I have so much I want to achieve. I am currently planning a gap year where I would like to work with a variety of organisations who aim to clean the oceans and save animals.
I moved to Barnwell School half way through year 10 from a school in north London which faced many challenges - the change, for me, was magnificent. My journey through Barnwell has been amazing; I have made a lot of memories and learned so much over the past three and a half years. I have received incredible support from all of my teachers which has helped me successfully gain a place in our sixth form where I am currently studying CTEC Extended Diploma Sport with the aim of becoming a Royal Marine
