Students at Durrington High School are encouraged to take a very active role in our school and there is tough competition for these important leadership roles. We have recently appointed Alastair Lee and Love Onwuzuruike as our Head Boy and Head Girl; in addition Year 11 prefects and learning mentors have also been added to each company team. Eight Year 10 students from each company have also been given the role of prefect to support our ever growing student leadership team.
The senior student body is led by the Head Boy and Head Girl of the school and they meet once a week with Mrs Hedger, Company Leader of Coubertin and Mrs Dedman, Company Leader of Roddick. The group works to coordinate a wide range of activities and the senior students are also the ambassadors for the whole school.
Student Leadership Team
Hello, my name is Love Onwuzuruike and it is a privilege to be your new Head Girl for this 2017/18 academic year. I consider myself to be an agile learner and I can assure you that Durrington High School has (thankfully) pushed me further than I thought I could go. I also really enjoy sports and love the art of music. I believe I am a resilient and enthusiastic person who is motivated by goal attainment and hope that it will be evident in all I do this year. The Student Leadership and I will strive to fulfil what is necessary as well as taking on board new ideas in order to make our school even better than it already.
Hello I’m Alastair Lee and I am the new Head Boy at Durrington High School. I mainly enjoy sport and my favourite subjects at school are P.E, Maths and Science. In my time as Head Boy I will promote extra-curricular activities. I feel this increases knowledge and builds self-esteem which gives students more confidence. This allows students to find new skills and abilities or increase ones they already have. Another area that is important to me is the school’s new “Be Kind Campaign”. This makes sure that students are being recognised by staff and their peers when they are being kind or helping others which will make the Durrington High School community a more kind and caring one.
Hello my name is Yasmine Henson and I am one of your new Deputy Head Girls. I am looking forward to working with the rest of the leadership team and hope this year, by collaborating together, we can make the school even better. I would like to increase the variety of extra-curricular activities and I will work very hard with the rest of the student leadership team to make sure that the student voice is heard and acted upon.
My name is Annie Light and I am one of Durrington High School’s Deputy Head Girls. My aim is to make sure everybody gets the most out of the school and takes every opportunity they can. I don’t want to leave DHS feeling like I haven’t given something back to the school, so I will continue to make sure I work as hard as possible for staff and students.
Hello, I am Isobel Thomas and I have been appointed as one of the new Deputy Head Girls here at Durrington and would love to make a difference to our students’ schooling life. I have represented the school in Rock Challenge as well as enjoying being part of the summer productions such as West End and Beauty and the Beast. I have also been a leader at Brownies for a few years now giving me responsibility and reliability skills which are important for the student leadership team. As Deputy Head Girl I will ensure all suggestions are passed on and queries are seen to and dealt with.
Hello, my name is Teagan Cornell and I am one of your Deputy Head Girls here at Durrington High School. My hobbies include horse riding, volunteering, listening to music, and occasionally socialising. This year, I want to be the voice for those who feel like they do not have one, for those who feel different or those who are waiting for the chance like I was. I am kind, compassionate, hardworking and I work well in a team. I will support the Head Boy and Head Girl to the best of my ability. As this is my last year at Durrington, I wish to make it the best, not only for me, but for the whole school.
Hello, my name is Eve McKernan and I’m one of the Deputy Head Girls here at Durrington High School. Over the next year I would like to help improve the pupils’ school life and support the Head Boy and Head Girl in the decisions they make. I would also like to help add more diverse extra-curricular activities. I am a positive and hard-working member of the DHS community and I am looking forward to my time in the role.
Hello my name is Rachel Usher, I am part of the Roddick Company and one of the Deputy Head Girls at DHS. I enjoy kayaking, textiles, playing hockey and reading. There are many exciting projects and ideas that the student leadership team hope to introduce this year; I am dedicated to ensure that these projects benefit all of the students at Durrington High School. I hope that because there are so many of us in the team, we can assist the students’ school life as much as possible.’
Hello my name is Eva Grace and I am one of the Deputy Head Girls at Durrington High School. I am kind and helpful and approachable. I have a passion for dance and ballet, which has taught me hard work and determination. I hope to bring these qualities to my role as part of the student leadership team. Working together we can make our school an amazing place to be.

If you haven't heard Bill speak before, you are in for a treat! With an extensive knowledge of the national landscape of schools, Bill always gives a well-informed, intelligent and often wry perspective on the current educational world.
Read more about Bill here.
"This is going to sound really cheesy, but life is a wonderful tapestry of adventures and it has elements of comedy and tragedy running through it. The important thing is to make sure that whatever comes your way you find the time for some stillness, for some humour and for some love, and that you value the here and now without investing too much in the past and the future."
- Bill Watkin, December 2016.
What is a TeachMeet?
A TeachMeet is a free, informal conference for teachers, by teachers. It consists of a programme of micro-presentations, each one being no longer than 7 minutes.
It is about hearing stories about learning, from teachers. This is not an event to present about a product or theory - this is a chance for teachers from all types of establishments to hear ideas from each other. Real narratives of practice that make a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and a whole bucket load of networking to boot! Whether you just want to attend, or are keen to share your ideas by doing a presentation, everyone is welcome.
This video explains what TeachMeets are all about.
A review of the previous DHS TeachMeets can be viewed here.
