Harpreet Kabotra
(Head Student)


Subjects: A Level English, Psychology & Spanish

Aim: My name is Harpreet Kabotra, and I am extremely proud and humbled to be Head Student at Oaks Park and to represent the voice of the student body.  I currently study English, Psychology and Spanish and hope to read English at university. I wish to give back to the school the invaluable skills and lessons they instilled in me. I want to unite our community to inspire change and make school life better for current and future students as well as staff, creating a thriving environment where success is key. 

I’ve always held the belief that one can inspire change in the world through a ripple effect. One small act can have a massive effect. Through my position, I would like to be able to inspire my peers to help them believe that they can do whatever they can and want to do. If a student leaves Oaks Park, be it in Year 11 or just at the end of the day, confident in their maths skills, happy because they’ve joined a new club, or just content to be in school, then I consider that to be a big success in my role.

For that reason, being head student is important to me, it has given me the opportunity to help younger pupils and make a school united throughout all years.

I am studying Media Studies, Drama and English and I aspire to go into a field in the media industry. Oaks Park has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and be the best I can be, therefore I am humbled to be able to motivate students to strive for success and be the absolute best versions of themselves.

The role of a deputy head student is important to me, because it enables me to encourage an optimistic and motivated purpose within our school. I am an extremely positive individual and I aspire to create a stimulating and engaging learning environment, whilst inspiring others in the process. The best feeling in the world to me is the feeling of accomplishment and the knowledge that I helped make a positive difference. In my eyes, the word, ‘Deputy’, is not insignificant to me and I know I am not limited in having my voice heard, along with the rest of the senior leadership team. As a deputy head student, I have an obligation to unite Oaks Park High School, and to teach my peers and faculty that everyone can accomplish anything, as long as we all work as one.
