Sixth Form Prefects
We have now appointed our St Marks prefect team comprising of Head boy, Head girl, deputy Head girl & Head boy and our prefect team.
Meet Our Sixth Form Prefects
I am a trusting yet imaginative individual, who is confident and optimistic about future goals for both myself and St Marks Academy. I believe I am conscientious and dutiful young adult who only strives for the best. 'Ambitious' is my key personality trait as I believe something being 'impossible' is just an opinion. I aspire to study 'Property development' at university and one day become an entrepreneur in that field of work. Being 'Head boy' at the academy carries a huge sense of responsibility, however I believe I am more than capable of handling such pressure. I love a challenge and would love nothing more than being a part of its ascent to becoming an 'Outstanding' academy to learn at. I have no doubt that it will do.
As I stand as Head Girl at St Marks Academy Church of England (2016-17) I believe I am gifted with talent of helping others around me especially with younger years in the school and also the Sixth Form. St Mark’s has changed massively over the last 7 years of me being here and I moderately know its foundations right to where I am today. I am thrilled to be elected as Head Girl of the school as this is a great opportunity for me to leave St Marks knowing that I have tried to make a change like no other. I would love to bring to the Academy a Bible Study Club to all years as this is relevant for school since it is a Church of England school.
In the nearby future, I wish to go to any Russell Group University and study Midwifery BSc (Hons) as this is my passion.
My name is Emmanuel, and I am Deputy Head boy at St Marks. I have spent a large chunk of my life at St Marks - 5 years in fact- and I am ecstatic about having the chance to impact my school for the better.
For me being Deputy Head boy means being that link between students and teachers and link that sometimes can be lacking. I am also able to work closely with the prefects while taking on greater responsibilities to promote the values of my school in and outside the school. I am very hard working and while do all I can in my power to make the role of deputy head boy my own.
I'm and aspiring Lawyer and hope to go onto a Russell Group University in order to complete a Law degree with maybe International Relations, this role will provide me with the necessary skills, such as leadership and organisation, to excel at university and will serve as a great example of skills on my UCAS application.
My name is Mia, and I'm deputy head girl at St Marks. I've been here for over 5 years, and I've been dedicated to making St Marks a better place throughout my time here. I'm enthusiastic, hardworking and friendly.
Being deputy head girl at St Mark’s means that I often have to assist the senior leadership team and take on certain roles and responsibilities, such as delegating tasks to prefects or arranging events. I'd like to continue to improve the sixth form by creating a bridge between year 12's and 13's and increasing communication between us, as well as ensuring that sixth former's have as many opportunities as possible to succeed and do the best that they can in St Marks.
I hope to go to a Russell group university such as Exeter or Cambridge to pursue a degree in Fine Art or Philosophy, and being deputy head girl is something that will stand out on my application as an example of how I have been able to show certain qualities that I possess.
Hi, my name is Mariana Oliveira, I'm seventeen years old and I'm Portuguese. In 2014 I moved to England and in August of 2015 I joined St. Marks Church of England Academy.
I believe that my good organisation, good communication and politeness are qualities that describe me. However, I believe that my best quality is the fact that I work well under pressure, helping me to meet my deadlines.
Being a prefect at St. Marks means that my responsibility is to support both the school and the students. As a prefect, my job is to make sure that the students follow school rules that ensure order and safety. Also, my job is to ensure that student's from younger years have the support needed to carry out their school years and achieve the best grade that they can.
After sixth form, I am aspiring to go to university and take a psychology degree. Being a prefect will help me on my journey since it will allow me to build relationships with various people that will teach me how to deal with new situations that I might face in the future. Also, by being a prefect I will have more responsibility and therefore I will be more prepared to deal with my own responsibilities autonomously.
My name is Kavish Patel, I am in year 13 and I study A-level Maths, BTEC Travel & Tourism and BTEC Business Studies.
My qualities that I can bring to the prefect team are that I have wealth of experience regarding the prefect field as I was once a deputy-head boy and a prefect.
What it means to be a prefect is that it’s a wonderful opportunity to give back to the St Marks community as they have given me so many opportunities these past 7 years.

Hello, I'm Georgia Fitzgerald, I've been at St Marks since 2013, when I joined in year 9. Personally, I believe I offer the prefect team a character who is extremely passionate, patient and positive, shown within all my actions both inside and out of the school environment. Being a prefect in St Marks is a role of admired leadership amongst all students, as we continue to build on the great changes that have already been made to the school and sixth form. My personal aspirations are to get into a Russell Group University studying English Literature and Geography (possibility Oxford, Bath or Kent) and then go onto achieving my aim of becoming a secondary English teacher. Being a prefect at St Marks is giving me the vital relationships with both students and teachers, whilst volunteering and teaching amongst all years within the school as essential work experience.

I can take into account anything people say and try to understand their opinion by putting myself in their shows, with respect. finally, I'm a very creative person which can come in handy for putting forward ideas.
Being a prefect means taking responsibility for other people's needs and making sure that the academy run's correctly and smoothly. It also means taking a leadership role in order to manage and organise any events or anything that other members of staff need help with (Being mature and taking a adult-like role).
My aspirations are going to further education (University), potentially the University of Bath because I would love to pursue a career in Architecture, mainly because they offer amazing Architectural courses.
Finally, being a prefect encourages you to stay on task and get things done on time, which could become a good habit to get used to when it comes to deadlines, starting now and later on at University.
My name is Nandini and I started my journey at St Marks one year ago. My one year at St Marks has transformed me from being a shy, unconfident person to a stronger and bolder personality. I have learnt to efficiently manage my time and improve my communication and leadership qualities. I want to help make St Marks a more loving community where all people are included and treated. I want to study medicine at uni and just like a doctor should treat his patients with equal respect I feel that all students at our school should be treated fairly and given equal opportunities to prove themselves.

I have been at St Marks for nearly 5 years now and have seen the transition this school has gone through since I was in year 7 till now. Being part of the prefect team will help me to showcase my abilities on helping to improve the school for the better. I will be conducting my role of trips in 6th form by asking my fellow students on what educational trips they would like to go to in which will help them to further their studies in a positive manner. I will be meeting with a variety of 6th form teachers to discuss the trips and entertainment the students would like to go on and take the situation further from their depending on what they say. This job role is perfect for me as it well allow me to engage with sixth formers and help them to voice their opinions out loud. Being part of the prefect team will be an amazing opportunity for me to get not just the 6th form, but the whole school involved in activities.
My name is Noemi and I've been going to St Marks for almost 3 years now. I'm shy but I'm hardworking and I always try to achieve the best possible. Being a prefect means that I can help other students and staff, but it also means that I can improve my own skills and become more confident.
At university I want to study Biological Sciences then do a conversion course to Criminology. Being a prefect will help me with this as I'll (hopefully) become more confident, a trait I will probably need if I want to study Criminology.
