Meet the new head girl and head boy at Whitburn Church of England Academy
Two outstanding pupils have been chosen as the new head boy and girl of Whitburn Church of England Academy.
Pupils Abigail Milburn, 15, and Louie Scott, 15, have taken on the roles following an election process in school.
As part of the school’s Democracy Day programme candidates had to convince their fellow pupils that they were suitable role models by presenting their case to pupils in Year 9 and Year 10.

Pupils then had to select up to eight candidates from the 23 applicants who they felt would represent all pupils within the school.
The school then held its annual head boy and head girl elections on Friday, June 21, with the voting process replicating the General Election experience with Year 10 pupils issued with voting slips.
