Head Boy & Head Girl
Head Boy (2015-16)
Now that I have reached my final year in Bryngwyn, I am filled with pride to be given the position of Head Boy. After looking up to previous Head Boys such as Stephen Hughes, I have aspired to follow in their footsteps and be a successful ambassador for Bryngwyn. Over the past four years of my life, I have come to see Bryngwyn as a wonderful community with amazing people and I am truly honoured to represent it. I have been taught many things by outstanding teachers here at Bryngwyn, not only to pass my exams, but to turn me into the friendly, committed and mature person I am today.
I started my secondary school life in Bryngwyn as a quiet boy who enjoyed playing rugby. As I settled into Bryngwyn I came out of my shell and began to seize all the opportunities I could. By the end of Year 10 I had performed in the BAFTAS, represented the school in rugby, athletics, mountain biking, cross country and many other sports. I also embarked on a skiing trip to Austria as well as academically succeeding in the first year of my GCSEs.
Throughout this time I realised that being Head Boy was a very prestigious position and after the success of previous Head Boys I made it my ambition to continue taking the school forward. I knew that nothing but the best in everything I did was vital and many hours of hard work were ahead of me, but I stayed positive and using the school motto to motivate me, ‘giving our best to be the best’, I managed to achieve my goal.
However, my work has just begun. I am now faced with a year to achieve my next targets as Head Boy and relish every moment of it. My self-set task for the next year is to encourage all pupils in Bryngwyn to get involved in everything they can and enjoy the experience!
I would like to thank everyone in Bryngwyn, from the staff to my peers, who have helped me become the person I am today and I hope I can give back to the Bryngwyn community over the next year. Thank You!
Head Girl (2015-16)
In September 2011 I walked into Ysgol Bryngwyn with a clueless look on my face like many others. Nearly five years have passed but I haven’t forgotten my first Assembly in Year 7 in which my Head of Year, Mr Kelly said that we were now the ‘small fish in a big pond’. I was daunted! It’s hard to comprehend that
I am now a ‘big fish in a small pond’ and not only that but I am also Head Girl of this small pond with a challenging yet fulfilling journey ahead of me. With this extensive role that I have achieved, I want to not only further the brilliance of Ysgol Bryngwyn but I want to leave here knowing that I have done my utmost in academic life and taking memories that will stay with me forever.
Ysgol Bryngwyn has always inspired me to reach my full potential and has always supported me in all aspects of life. Throughout Year 9 and 10 I grasped all the opportunities the school had to offer and excelled in the skills that came along with these. These skills have helped me grow to be the person I am today. When people ask me what it’s like to be a pupil of Bryngwyn School I must say that it’s like being part of a unified family. As Bryngwyn has given me so much, from teachers to pupils, I am ready to give back to the school my paramount efforts and be the ambassador that the title of Head Girl deserves.
It is an honour to be Head Girl of such an exceptional, friendly and caring community and I want to give a huge thank you to all those who have helped me to achieve these memories throughout my time in Bryngwyn. In the words of Bryngwyn School, ‘bringing together the 3A’s; attendance and positive attitude will result in achievement’ - I am living proof!
Head Boy (2014-15)
So here I am in my final year not just as a school pupil but as part of the
wonderful family I know as Bryngwyn, of course this school will stay
strong in my heart for many years to come due to the unbelievably
fulfilling experience I have had here. I started in Bryngwyn in Year 8
and at that time I couldn't claim to be more than an average pupil who
hated Monday mornings! However, the outstanding commitment of all the
staff here and the friendly, caring community we are so fortunate to have certainly
inspired me. I arrived for my first day of Year 9 a different person, I set myself
two main goals; to become Head Boy in Year 11 and leave Bryngwyn with the
very highest grades possible. To achieve my ambitions I recognised that
nothing but an awful lot of hard work and sacrifice was required.
Throughout Year 9 and 10 I grabbed any and every opportunity to get involved
in school life. I’ve always appreciated Bryngwyn in the way that it offers
something for everyone, this helped me to broaden my horizons massively as
one day I could be representing the school in rugby or athletics, and then the
next day I would find myself playing in the school orchestra. When it came to
my exams in Year 10 I knew that a clean sweep of outstanding results would go
a long way to being considered for Head Boy, as a result I worked incredibly hard
day in day out, constantly being driven by that feeling of success which I was
confident would come. You may ask why I would be so confident - the three A’s
as they are known in Bryngwyn revolve around attendance combined with a
positive attitude resulting in achievement. Certainly in these past two years I
have found that to be the case. Hard work and an attitude to go the extra mile
always pay off! Whether it’s going out training before school or putting my head
down in class, all it takes is a mind-set to achieve. For the younger pupils reading
this, my message is simple; grab every opportunity to get involved in Bryngwyn
and be prepared to work hard and only you can limit yourself!
I would like to extend a really big thank you to all those that have supported me
throughout my time in Bryngwyn, now it’s time for me to give something back
and be the best ambassador I can be for you all. As I always say onwards and upwards!
Head Girl (2014-15)
It still feels like only yesterday that I was starting at Bryngwyn School and
honestly cannot believe that I'm in my last year already! I remember when I
was a quiet shy little girl, so being able to see the confident person I am today
really shows how much I've matured in the last four years. When joining Bryngwyn
I never even dreamed I would be Head Girl but as the years passed it became
an ambition of mine and I can't believe I'm here today and have actually achieved
the position of Head Girl. It is such an honour and a title I will never forget!
I cannot wait to begin my duties as Head Girl and to become a positive role model
to the younger pupils. To be able to look at our new pupils and to know that one
day they will be in my position with the prospect of GCSEs and college, it's brilliant
to know that Bryngwyn will prepare them fully. It's crazy to think that any day I could be
walking past a future Head Girl and even crazier to think that used to be me!
The reason why I'm overjoyed with this role is because Bryngwyn is such an inspiring
school and it's such an opportunity to be part of that and to be able to represent the
school in this way. Therefore I'm going to put my all into this role and prove that it was
the right choice to appoint me as Head Girl. I'm excited at the challenge this role will
present and honestly cannot think of a more rewarding way to conclude my final year
at Bryngwyn School.
Head Boy (2013-14)
The years have literally flown during my time at Bryngwyn - I cannot believe that this is my final year! I have always enjoyed school and tried to attend lots of extra-curricular activities which sometimes meant spending time with older pupils and staff. They inspired me to be the best that I could be and always encouraged and supported me. In Year 9, I was told about the role of Head Boy and from that moment, it became my ambition.
I am so grateful that I have been appointed Head Boy and will strive to do my best to achieve good results and become a good
ambassador for our school. Bryngwyn has made me the person
I am today - I feel that it is now time to give something back in return.
I think it will be a year to remember!
Head Girl (2013-14)
Well, my final year at Bryngwyn School really has arrived. I still cannot believe that I have reached this point. I still vividly remember my first year at comprehensive school and I can say that, from that first day, I have loved every moment of it. With fantastic opportunities at our constant disposal, I think I have been able to take full advantage of the various competitions, trips and tremendous support from our brilliant teachers.
From my early stages of school, it was always an ambition of mine to become Head Girl so when I received the news of my appointment
I was overjoyed and excited to get started. The school works on a positive
ethos of ‘Giving our Best to be the Best’ and this is shown at many times
during the year such as our prize evenings and always in our outstanding
GCSE results. I hope to be able to represent the school in the positive
manner it deserves and make the whole Bryngwyn family proud to call
me their Head Girl.
Head Boy (2012-13)
When I first came to Bryngwyn, I didn’t really consider my future or the type of career I’d like to pursue after leaving school. My time at Bryngwyn seemed to go by really quickly and before I knew it I was in my last two years of school. It was only then that I realised the amount of effort that was required to achieve the best possible results. It also made me realise that one of my ambitions was to become Head Boy of Ysgol Bryngwyn School. When I was appointed Head Boy, I was really pleased and it certainly inspired me to become more responsible and mature. I feel that my time at Bryngwyn has helped make me into the person I am and now, as Head Boy, I feel I am in a position to give something back to the School.
Head Girl (2012-13)
I can’t believe this is my final year at Bryngwyn, the years have flown by! When I look back at my time in Bryngwyn, I’d like to think that I have taken advantage of all the opportunities offered to me, be it extra-curricular activities or the support given by all the teachers, who helped myself and my fellow pupils gain the best possible grades in our exams. Every time a visitor comes into the School, they comment on the warm welcome they receive and the caring atmosphere they experience. One of the most important aspects of Bryngwyn is its respect for the importance of pupil voice. This is one of the many reasons why I applied to be Head Girl, as I knew that my opinion would be valued, as is that of every other pupil in the School.
I would like to thank all the staff at Bryngwyn for helping to make some of
the potentially hardest years in my life the ones I will cherish the most.
Although I am leaving at the end of this school year, I don’t think I’ll ever really
Head Boy (2011-12)
I have been in Bryngwyn for 4 years now and I feel that I truly understand the meaning of school life. Every teacher make you feel at home and welcome in the school community and that is what makes Bryngwyn the success it is today. I started off in lower ability sets, so I understand what it is like to progress through the classes and work your way up through the school - I know I couldn’t have done this without the teachers! With all the improvements in the departmental resources recently, I feel that Bryngwyn is a most inspiring environment to work in.
Head Girl (2011-12)
It’s hard to believe that I’m already in my fifth and last year at Bryngwyn – time has really flown! When I came to this school I had no idea how many different opportunities Bryngwyn School offers its pupils. I’d like to think I have taken advantage of some of these extra curricular activities from the Duke of Edinburgh to additional GCSEs. I would encourage anyone to do the same. Bryngwyn has truly prepared me for the world beyond compulsory education and certainly I will cherish all the relationships I have formed thanks to the community at our school. I have found that there is something for everyone at Bryngwyn and I strongly believe this has helped during my development to adulthood. The staff willingly give their time to those who seek assistance or want to excel. Therefore, the relationship between the staff and pupils is very strong. Who could ask for more from a school?
Head Boy (2010-11)
Considering I am in my fifth and final year at Bryngwyn, I feel I know the school as well as anyone could. Bryngwyn is a community in which pupils are content and happy. My experience of lessons has always been that they are interesting and each teacher has their own way of capturing the attention of the class. As a particularly sporty person, I can safely say that Bryngwyn’s PE department has not only increased my ability in the sports I do, but also opened my eyes to sports I would not have considered before. All in all, my experience of Bryngwyn has been a very enjoyable one and an experience that will stay with me forever.
Head Girl (2010-11)
Here at Bryngwyn School I feel that the pupil – staff relationship is very strong. Staff show a great level of care and concern, as well as involving themselves with pupils on a regular basis. Bryngwyn has given me so many opportunities, and taught me the skills and mindset needed for when I leave. Over the past few years, extra-curricular activities have improved greatly. As a keen musician, one thing I am particularly proud about is the Bryngwyn School Orchestra, which has many talented musicians as members.
So, as it’s my final year, I would like to say one last thing; thank you to all of the wonderful teachers and staff here at Bryngwyn who helped me to achieve my best. I am proud to have been part of such an excellent, high-achieving school.
