Bobbie - Head Girl
Hi, my name is Bobbie and I am the Head Girl. At Bay House my favourite subject is Drama - it gives me the confidence I need and also helps me to be creative. In my spare time I love to exercise, but also enjoy reading. I can't wait for the year ahead and all the opportunities that we, as a team will be given, allowing us to work together to improve our school.

Hi I'm Steph and I'm one of our Deputy head girls and a proud member of the Junior Headship Team here at Bay House School. In School I am one of 15 RS pupils in year 11 and I take a real interest in the subject.

I am thoroughly excited to start making a difference to the school and embrace all the new opportunities I am to complete this year.

Hello, my name is Harvey (the tall one) and I'm a deputy head boy at bayhouse school. I enjoy resistant materials because it encourages me to be creative and resourceful which are skills I put into my school work and everyday life. My main goal for this year at bay house is to help with the students from bayhouse and brunepark to come together and grow the gfm community. (And other things)
Tom - Deputy Head Boy
Hi my name is Tom, and you'll probably know me as the small one. I'm one of the deputy head boys at Bay House. My favourite things to do is swimming and playing guitar (although not at the same time). My favourite subjects at school are languages, and I take mandarin and French. They present a new challenge, and mean I have to persevere, just like in many aspects of life. My main goal this year is to get the pupil voice up and running and am looking forward to the challenge.

Hello my name is Jake and I am one of the Deputy Head boys at Bay house. My favourite subjects are History and Drama and I enjoy performing arts in my community as well as at school. I am looking forward to working together with the JHT to create new legacy’s.
Junior Headship Team
We are working towards more integration of the pupils of the GFM schools, we aim to do this by us all coming together as one, in cooperation rather than separating ourselves from each other.
The senior prefects and our JHT have united and we wish for all pupils to work together as one.
Prefects (from the Latin praeficere which means ‘to lead’) are selected for their ability to lead others and are, indeed, pupil leaders.
Prefects have the responsibility to set an example to others in the school community through a positive attitude to learning, good citizenship and good conduct. Prefects are expected to be role models for the younger pupils to aspire to and are required to undertake various duties throughout the year.
The role of Prefect requires commitment and applicants are asked to consider the impact of this in the year they will also be taking their GCSE examinations.
Specifically, the role of a prefect involves:
- Wearing a different colour outer garment at all times and having a visible ‘presence’ around the school
- Lunch duties working alongside staff to supervise other pupils
- Helping during selected open evenings such as the Year 6 Open Evening and the Year 7 Meet the Tutors event
- Being the 'face' of the school at other events
- Working with and supporting the pupils and tutor of an allocated Year 7 or Year 8 tutor group each week in their tutor base
- Helping younger pupils by becoming involved in clubs and societies
Prefects are awarded the further opportunity to apply for the additional responsibility of the Head Boy or Girl and Deputy Head Boy or Girl positions. Successful applicants for these roles are formally interviewed by a panel of Senior Leadership Team members and a representative from the Governing Body.
The responsibility of the Junior Headship Team includes:
- Presenting assemblies
- Attending governors meetings (when requried)
- Attending meetings with senior leaders (when required)
- Attending additional parents evenings
- Primary school visits
Continuing on the school approach to pupil voice, our aim is to maintain and improve the voice of the pupils in the bay house community. We feel it is important that pupils in all Years are empowered into leadership opportunities.
We aim to kickstart Pupil Voice which involves 1 boy and 1 girl from each Tutor Group who have been elected to serve as a whole Year Group team. From there, two pupils from that team were elected onto a whole school board, which take on more responsibility in the leadership of projects. Both these teams work in co-operation with the Junior Headship Team and Senior Staff to act on ideas and projects.
We believe that this system will lead to an overall growth in student mindset; our aim is to encourage and promote self-belief through leadership and creativity, enabling students to be more confident in using their imagination and express their own opinions and hopes for the school.
It is hoped that by continuing this system, it will enable exciting opportunities for both pupils and teachers alike and for it to continue long into the future. Should there be any queries, please consult the Junior Headship Team or Mrs Cornish on how to get involved.
