THE King's School has appointed this year's student leaders to take it forward in the post-Covid era.

Year 13 students Lottie Dennett and Charlie Oakes have been appointed school captains for this academic year.

Lottie represents King's at hockey and pistol shooting and is also a member of its new frisbee club, while Charlie is a keen golfer and skier and is part of the school's scuba diving programme.

Lottie, who is studying biology, chemistry and psychology and wants to read veterinary science at university, said: "I'm very passionate about the school so I'd love to encourage others to see school life the same way that I do.

"I'd also like to take advantage of being a one site school to bring older and younger years together to encourage an even stronger sense of community."

Charlie is studying geography, history and English in the Sixth Form with a view to reading geography at either Durham or St Andrews. He added: "I think the move to co-education, in conjunction with the new site has brought everyone together in one place and this has enhanced relationships.

"Now we are free of restrictions, we can filly start to make the most of the new site, which I feel really proud, with increased community usage of the fantastic facilities."

Charlie and Lottie are supported by a team of four vice-captains: aspiring naval doctors Tom Willshaw and Nohan Alias, talented hockey player Isabel Moores, and open water swimmer and long-distance runner Trinity Mack. Together they will spearhead the student leadership team at King's.
