Meet Our Sixth Form Students
All of our Sixth Form students are encouraged to involve themselves in both The Academy and the local community. We ask all of our Sixth Form students to complete one hour of assistance a week to a member of staff, student or group of students, as part of our Student Support Programme (SSP). They are also asked to volunteer to help with local Academy and community events to develop their leadership skills. All Sixth Formers are encouraged to develop their transferable skills through volunteering. This experience will help to build their CVs and UCAS applications, ready for their life after Sixth Form. The Student Executive for 2017 to 2018 are:
Mitchell Adams – Head Boy
I am currently studying A-level English Literature, History and Sociology and I hope to study international law at university. I feel privileged to be the Head Boy at The Academy because I have been encouraged to do things which have pushed me out of my comfort zone and which have helped me develop as a person. I feel lucky that I can now help give something back to The Academy as everything I have achieved, would not have been possible without the help and support I have received throughout the years.
Jessica Walsh – Head Girl
I’m Jessica Walsh and I am The Harefield Academy’s newly selected Head Girl. I am currently studying A-levels in English Literature, Philosophy & Ethics and Psychology. I am extremely grateful to have this important role in The Academy, as it gives me the opportunity to give back to all of the teachers who have helped me become the person I am today, and also to give back to the community I have grown up in. I look forward to all of the exciting events I will be involved in to push The Academy further than before!
Samuel Fashakin - Deputy Head Boy
My name is Samuel and I am studying the OCR Cambridge Technical Introductory Diploma in ICT, with the Business Studies and Media A-levels. My plan is to go on to study Business Management and Information Technology at university. I am Deputy Head Boy, having been here since year 7, I have seen The Academy develop and progress into what it is now; I am honestly proud to say that I am a Harefield Academy student, and I contribute to other people’s positive experiences of the school. In my free time I am a young entrepreneur who runs my own media company; I have even worked for The Academy.
Lucy Wood – Deputy Head Girl
I am studying History, Maths and Biology at A-level and have been at The Harefield Academy since year 7. The Academy has helped me gain confidence over the years and consistently encouraged me to excel in my work, so that now I strive to study History at university. Hopefully as Deputy Head Girl I can help other students in the same way, so that everyone can enjoy The Academy experience as much as I have.
Cai Antoine – Student Executive Leader
I am currently studying three A-levels: English Literature, Philosophy & Ethics and Sociology. When I have completed my A-levels I wish to continue my studies of English Literature combined with Philosophy at university. I am proud to be a part of The Harefield Academy, because it has helped me to work harder to get the grades I need in order to study my desired degree.
Panagiota Spyrou – Student Executive Leader
My name is Panagiota Spyrou and I am a Student Executive Leader for The Harefield Academy in Year 13. I study A-level Mathematics, Physics, Philosophy and the Extended Project. I hope to start studying Aeronautical Engineering at university next year. This is my second year in The Academy and I consider myself lucky to attend. The teachers have supported me throughout my journey making me believe in my abilities and achieve success. I made new friends and built my confidence, discovering sides of myself that I could not imagine. As a result, I believe that the least I could do is to take action implementing positive ideas in The Academy, so that every new student feels as welcome and as proud to be a student of The Academy, as I do.
Hannah Wood – Student Executive Leader
I have been at The Harefield Academy since year 7 and I am currently in the Sixth Form. I am studying A-levels in English Literature, Sociology and Philosophy & Ethics. When I finish year 13 I want to study English Literature at university.
