An exhaustive and exhausting process (for Mr Bowden!) culminated in the designation of our new Prefect, Captaincy and Devonport Voice teams.
Student leadership has become increasingly significant in the last five years and we rely on these teams to deliver.
I am looking forward to working with our new leaders and want to pay tribute to the teams they are replacing. Always moving forward.
School Captain, Harry Samuels, with the Vice-Captains, Krystian Lane, Will Morgan and Louise Hatton
Devonport Chair, Wade Dyer, with Jordana Davarian (Vice Chair), Maddy Allsop (Vice Chair),
Alex Reed (Secretary), St John Gilbert (Marketing Director) and Takunda Karima (Sixth Form Associate)

Congratulations to Liam Ward who has graduated from the Plymouth Children’s University.
Liam said, “At the age of ten I joined the Plymouth Children’s University. The university encourages children to learn outside of school eg Scouts, swimming, water polo clubs, tennis and cricket clubs and many more. The three learning destinations I learn from are 19th Plymouth Scouts and DRSA [Devonport Royal Swimming Club] doing both swimming and water polo.
“At the Theatre Royal I graduated with 350 hours of learning outside school and received a medal. Now I am working towards my diploma (1,000 hours outside school).
“It’s great making new friends and learning. I really do recommend it to anyone. Visit the website
if you would like to get involved.”
