Ruby Minty is now Head Girl and Tom Harding is Head Boy at Priory Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.
They are now rolling out a new reward system for students across the school, and plan other initiatives throughout the year.
Ruby, who played the lead role in the school production of Wizard of Oz last year, said: “I wanted to become head girl to give something back – the school has given me excellent opportunities and help throughout my years here.
“Being Head Girl is also a brilliant way to become more involved in the different year groups in the school, and to make sure everyone gets a chance to say what they want to improve.”
Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “Ruby and Tom are really excellent students and we are very excited to see them in their new roles this year.”
