New House Captains

During May we witnessed the hotly anticipated House captain elections. To make the procedure as real as possible we introduced an electoral register to this year’s process which required form groups to sign, collect a polling card and in turn complete ballot papers. After weeks of competitive campaigning each house had the opportunity to vote for their new Captains and Vice-captains. This year we held individual House candidate debates on the stage in the hall which were recorded and shown to each House before they voted.  The debates were extremely thought provoking and entertaining and thanks goes to Mr Richardson, James Rantell, Harry Holyhead and the Hurstmere News team, for their hard work in filming and editing the final films. I am sure this was an excellent showcase for the budding nominees.  Additionally, all candidates spent time talking to form groups at tutor time and in the playgrounds. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who applied and despite only 8 being chosen for the captain roles, all those who entered can be extremely proud of their hard work and commitment to serve their individual Houses. Well done to you all. The 2017 results are as follows:

Caxton House - Tristin Freeman (C) and Billy French (VC)

Chaucer House - Matthew Smith (C) and Tom Horak (VC)

Cobham House  - Zal Motafram (C) and Alfie Wallace (VC)

Sidney House -   Sam Leamon (C) and Taylor Hawkes (VC)
