A sixth former impressed sixth form managers so much when she applied to be a head girl that they created a new position for her.
Eve Butler, aged 17, of Thorne, will be Trinity Academy’s first student community liaison leader and will put forward her ideas for improving communication between pupils, staff and the community, suggesting events and encouraging more charity work.
Eve, who is studying A levels in business, maths, further maths and law, hopes to set up a group to involve parents and help boost students’ performance, and to hold more parents’ evenings across the year groups.
She is also aiming to organise charity events and more social events in school for students, and will oversee the Student Council.
Eve, who is a keen dancer and spends 15 hours a week training and coaching others, said: “The academy is successful because of the trinity of students, staff and parents but I’d like to strengthen those bonds.
“It’s a role no-one has had before it’s difficult to know exactly what I’ll be doing, but it’s great to be given the chance to voice my ideas and implement as many as possible.”
