The “Dragons Den” has nothing on the Shipston High School senior prefect interview process. Students had to submit a letter of application, pass through a shortlisting process and then undergo a tough interview with Mr Harris, Ms. Westbrook and Governor Mr Punt. The quality of the applications was very high. After long debate and discussion it was decided that, due to the growing school and the genuine variety of skills and ideas discussed in interview, the senior prefect team would be expanded to five for the next school year. Minnie Thomas and Ashish Shylesh were appointed Head Prefects with Matthew Barrett, Amy West and James Barrett being appointed Deputy Head Prefects.
It is hoped that some of the unsuccessful candidates will take on House roles at the start of next term and congratulations are due to all the interview candidates for some very impressive performances.
