Head Boy – James Grimditch

Hi, I’m James, Head Boy at the Royal Latin School. I study maths, further maths, physics and biology with a view to reading physics at university next year. Joining the StLT gives me the opportunity to give back to a school that has given me so much, while also allowing me to improve the experience of our students and the wider school community through innovative ideas and cooperation. I have so many amazing memories from my time at this school, from skiing to sports day to studying with my friends, and I want to make sure as many students as possible can make those memories too. As a keen sportsman I want to make sure that we’re getting the most out of our new, state of the art facilities and that we keep sport at the heart of our school. I’m also very passionate about the environment, and continuing the great work Green Touch do, to reduce the school’s carbon footprint. In my spare time I’m an enthusiastic footballer, avid drummer and cricketer and I look forward to this challenging year ahead as we look to build on almost 600 years of history.

Head Girl – Georgia Davies-Payne

My name is Georgia Davies-Payne and I am very proud to be the Head Girl of The Royal Latin School!  I study English Literature, Biology and Chemistry and completed my Extended Project Qualification last year – all in the hopes of applying to Biomedical Studies at university with the aim of following a career in medicine  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the RLS and a partial reason for my application to the Senior Student Leadership Team was the opportunity to give back to the school, the teachers and the students alike.  Outside of school, I attend Air Cadets and I can’t wait for the Girls’ Rugby Team to start back up again! Although this year may be a little different, as Head Girl I am looking forward to working with the rest of the team to ensure everyone has the same wonderful experiences I have had during their time here at The Royal Latin School.

Deputy Head Boy – Dylan McGarr

 Hi, I’m Dylan McGarr and am honoured to be Deputy Head Boy. I study English, Maths and Politics (a mix that surprises a lot of teachers) and hope to read PPE at university. I am also an avid football fan, supporting Newcastle United, and hope that my time as Deputy Head Boy will be more successful than their recent pursuits for a trophy! As a member of the Student Leadership Team, I aim to ensure all students feel part of the wonderful school community and their many achievements, academic or extracurricular, are recognised. It will undoubtedly be the strangest year I have experienced at the school, but The Royal Latin has been the place of some of my most incredible memories, and I hope that my work as part of the Student Leadership Team will ensure this is the same for everyone.

Deputy Head Girl – Sewa Adetola

I study Psychology, Biology and Chemistry at A-level, and I did an Extended Project Qualification last year. I hope to study Biomedical Sciences or Pharmacy at University and proceed to apply this in a range of areas. I applied to be on the Student Leadership Team because it was important to me that I give back to my school community, as the work of previous SLTs has supported me through what I consider to be some of my most important years, and I have already started to do that! This platform lets me initiate change and promote ideas to help the school, and I am grateful for that. In my free time, I enjoy sports, particularly playing tennis at my local club and also being an assistant coach there. It is so beautiful to see the students grow and improve in both tennis skill and maturity. I have a love for both music and drama, so you can bet on my involvement in our House Competitions! Finally, I am so pleased to be a part of such a lovely, hardworking team, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our SLT and the school.
