Sir Christopher Hatton Academy has announced that Aidan Youngman and Arpana Kumari will be their head boy and head girl for 2020-21.

The position of head boy and girl at the school in Wellingborough is highly valued within the school community and they are an important link between students and staff.

Arpana and Aidan will play an ambassadorial role within the school which includes speaking at public events such as open evenings.

They act as role models for the wider school community and present assemblies to all year groups throughout the academic year.

In addition to this, together with the house captains they also contribute at parents evenings and organise fundraising for charities.

Aidan has been at Sir Christopher Hatton since he joined in Year 7 and has been a consistently driven and inspiring individual.

Aidan plans to study English at university with aspirations to go into teaching.

Arpana has flourished at her time since joining Sir Christopher Hatton and intends to study philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) at university.

Co-principal Mr Mitchell said: "All students that applied for the prestigious positions put a lot of time and effort into the application process and the final deliberations were tough.

"We are really looking forward to working with Arpana and Aidan who will lead and help support all our students as they return in September.

"We wish them both well in their reign as head boy and girl."

Arpana and Aidan are looking forward to meeting the community, Year 6s and Year 11s at the school's future open evenings which will be held on:

- Year 6 open evening on Monday, October 5, and Tuesday, October 6

- Sixth form open evening on Wednesday, November 4
