Exciting year ahead for new senior prefects

September 19th, 2019
Joe, Tom and Cameron have an exciting year ahead.

A keen rower, who is hoping to study at Cambridge University, is the new Head Boy at Monmouth School for Boys.

Joe, who is also a talented musician, is taking A levels in History, French and Maths.

Eighteen-year-old Joe is interested in journalism and would like to read a degree in History and French at Cambridge. He achieved five A*s and five 9s at GCSE.

“We have lots of exciting ideas for the year ahead and would like to be role models for the other boys at Monmouth,” said Joe, whose role is officially titled Head of School.

“We would also like to organise some very positive charity events in collaboration with the senior prefects at Monmouth School for Girls.”

Joe is a saxophonist in MOJO, the school’s jazz orchestra, and represented Wales over the summer at the Home International Rowing Regatta in Strathclyde.

Tom and Cameron, both 17, will be supporting Joe in their roles of Deputy Head Boys.

Tom, who joined Monmouth from Tockington Manor School in Year 9, is studying Maths, Further Maths, French and History at A level.

He recorded four A*, four 9s, one 8 and an A at GCSE.

Tom would like to read a degree in History and Economics at the University of Oxford.

Tom was heavily involved in the school’s Young Enterprise project last term and is a member of Chapel Choir.

“Young Enterprise was a great experience and, hopefully, my degree will open up some further opportunities in the business world,” he said.

Tom headed up the school’s Eco Panda Young Enterprise company which sought to replace plastic straws with bamboo straws.

The company finished runners-up in Young Enterprise Wales’ Newport and Monmouthshire regional finals and scooped awards for Marketing, Financial Management and Sustainability.

Cameron is a keen rower and hopes to read a degree in Physics and Philosophy at the University of Oxford.

He achieved five A*s and five 9s at GCSE and is studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and English at A level.

The Captain of Boats at Monmouth School for Boys, Cameron sings in Chapel Choir and is a member of Symphonic Winds.

Earlier this year, Cameron took his passion for learning physics to a new dimension after securing a place on a masterclass in the Physics Department at the University of Oxford.

Cameron also had a work experience placement at the prestigious Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire.

Cameron spent five days under supervision in ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at the Science and Technology Facilities Council laboratory.

“Physics is a science that I have been interested in for most of my life so looking to study it at university, hopefully at Oxford, is the next step for me,” he said.
