Student Leadership Team

Meet our Sixth Form Leadership Team 2018-19


Max Allen – Head Boy

I have been at Ridgeway all the way through since Year 7 and being chosen to be Head Boy is an opportunity; I am very honoured to have been given. I will grasp the opportunity with both hands and aim to give back as much as I can to the school that has helped me so much along the way. I am delighted to have such an amazing Student Leadership Team to spend the next year working alongside helping with all things school and Sixth Form related. A-Levels are a very challenging time for everyone, and I will strive to make everyone’s time at the R6 as enjoyable and rewarding as possible. In terms of A-Levels I am studying Physics, History and Maths as well as a BTEC in Music Technology with the end goal being joining the RAF as a Pilot or Weapons Systems Officer.


Sky Shortridge– Head Girl

Hello, my name is Skye and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to become Head Girl. I have been at The Ridgeway School since Year 7, and am approaching my seventh and final year at the school and I am excited to see what this final year brings. During these teenage years I have changed and developed massively in my confidence and work ethic, with the assistance of the endless opportunities and positive atmosphere which the school has provided me. I am honoured to now have the opportunity to participate in creating this same atmosphere for other students, and hope my ideas can have a positive impact. I am currently studying History, Politics and Maths, and hope to attend university to study politics further.


Harry Lowe – Deputy Head Boy

Since joining Ridgeway in Year 7, I have always been extremely grateful for all of the opportunities to develop new skills and gain new experiences that it offers the students. I believe that these opportunities for positions of responsibility have prepared me well to fulfil this new role. I am honoured to represent the students as Deputy Head Boy and greatly appreciate the opportunity to give back to the school, s it has done so much for me. I look forward to working with the Leadership Team to help improve the School and the Sixth Form, ensuring every student’s voice is heard. I have many ideas in how we can do this, involving the development of R6 Committees and Events and the transition period of Year 11 into 12.

I am currently studying Maths, Chemistry and Biology with the hope of going on to study Medicine at university.


Emily Smith – Deputy Head Girl

Hi, I’m Emily and I am Deputy Head Girl of The Ridgeway School. I have attended the school for the last six years, and now heading into my final year, I am extremely honoured to be a part of the Student Leadership Team. I study English Literature, Geography and Psychology at A-level, and also I love to get involved with PE and intervention sessions for other year groups. From gallivanting around in rural Ecuador to playing rounders matches with my peers. I’m grateful for every experience Ridgeway has offered me and now strive to encourage younger years to do the same. Although Year 13 will prove to be challenging, I am determined to make it the best one yet!
