"Hi I’m Dylan, the head boy for this year.  I am taking Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths for my A-Levels.

During my time in the role, I would like to help improve the overall experience and day to day life of all members of the sixth form as much as possible. I am greatly appreciative of the opportunity provided and hope to work with the rest of the senior student team to improve school life as much as possible. "

Favourite Minecraft block: mycelium

"I've only been at Rugby High for a very short time, but even so, I have already become involved with many of our extracurricular as there's always something for everyone. 

As a member of SSLT - I feel it is a great privilege to be able to represent the school community and the responsibility that goes along with it is vast, but that does not negate the joy that we get from our roles as a team. 

SSLT this year has already set out with many of our plane such as opening The Hatch, and wanting new furniture in the common rooms. However, we are still striving for more as we aim to make the school a more environmentally friendly place and make recycling and disposal of rubbish easier and less environmentally damaging."
