The role of head girl and boy at Boothroyd is a special one, offered to year 6 children that demonstrate responsibility, impeccable behaviour, strong communication and leadership skills. It requires children that are held in high regard by both children and staff and that are willing and able to promote the school’s core values. The main purpose of their role is to support the Leadership Team in promoting and representing the school.
