Sixth Form Student Leadership Team
Congratulations to the new 2021-22 Sixth Form Leadership Team
Joquan Johnson - Head Boy
At Ousedale, I study Music, Philosophy and Media Studies. I have attended Ousedale since Year 7 and in this time, I have been in multiple leadership roles, such as the student council from Year 7 - Year 10 and being an Ambassador in Year 11. Ousedale has provided me with the opportunities to broader my horizons by helping me gain a very competitive place in a summer school to my dream university. This has helped me gain a better knowledge and understanding of University life and has guaranteed me an offer to the University of Durham.
After Sixth Form, I would love to study Music and Philosophy as a joint honours course, focusing on Ethnomusicology and Ethical Morality. This course will eventually lead me to becoming a secondary school teacher. COVID-19 has impacted us hugely these past few years, therefore as Head Boy, I would love to help mould our school community to be a more inclusive and diverse space where our voices as students are heard.
Saskia Chaplin - Head Girl
When I first joined Ousedale in 2015 I lacked confidence and self-belief. But thanks to the wide range of extracurricular activities and support from staff over the past six years I have been able to achieve my academic goals and develop my leadership skills - allowing me to play an active role as an Ambassador, Student Councillor and now as Head Girl. So far this year I have already had the pleasure in helping organise Black History Month which allowed me to deliver assemblies at both Campuses and work with students to celebrate diversity. I am currently studying Mathematics, History and English Literature with the ambition to read English as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford (fingers crossed).
Outside of school, I am an endurance athlete and coach for MK Marshall’s Athletics Club; I also help coordinate volunteers for sports events in Milton Keynes and enjoy getting stuck into volunteering myself. What do I want to be when I’m older? No idea. But what I do know is that I hope to make a positive impact on the community around me - something I endeavor to do during my final year at Ousedale.
Alex Eglinton - Deputy Head Boy
I was at Olney Campus for 5 years and I am now studying Mathematics, Economics and History at Sixth Form and hope to go to university to study economics next year. Over the next few months, I am keen to help the school from an environmental point of view and I’m excited for the year ahead. I look forward to working as part of this year's Leadership Team as I know we can play our part in improving everyone’s time at this school. Outside of school I am very passionate about sports (mainly football) and I am - with some regret - a Nottingham forest season ticket holder. In the words of the man I’m named after: “Failing/losing is a powerful management tool, so long as it doesn’t become a habit” (SIr Alex Ferguson).
Fiona Muncaster - Deputy Head Girl
I started attending Ousedale at the start of Year 12 and have since wanted to make my own mark on the school by becoming part of the Sixth Form Leadership Team. I want to make the school a more comfortable environment for students, particularly focusing on people moving into the Sixth Form and student wellbeing within the school. I currently take English Literature, English Language and Photography and am hoping to study film production at University.
Outside of school, I love being creative and spend my free time volunteering at MK gallery where I enjoy working in a team of equally artistic people. I hope to spend my time as part of the Leadership Team making a positive difference to the school and helping other students to achieve success.
Extended Leadership Team
At Sixth Form, I’m studying Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and I hope to go to university to study Medicine. Outside of school, I play two instruments, volunteer at an Infant School and enjoy languages. I hope to become a doctor and be able to travel as part of my career. Ousedale helped inspire me to want to explore other countries through the amazing trips they provide - my most memorable being a History trip to Vietnam. As part of the Sixth Form Leadership Team I will work to ensure other students have access to experiences like this. Additionally, I feel passionate about Student Wellbeing and want to work with the rest of the team to make sure every student feels supported and comfortable coming to Ousedale.
I started my journey at Ousedale in Year 10. Being at this school since Year 10, I have enjoyed all of the opportunities that have been provided as well as the learning environment also facing many challenges and achievements which has helped me grow as an individual.
I am currently studying Politics, Economics and English Language at A level. As I have always had a great interest in Politics, I will be looking forward to seeing where this takes me after Sixth Form.
As part of the Leadership Team I will help with charity along with other areas and so I will look forward to working with everyone whilst encouraging students to participate around the school.
