Oliver takes to helm as new head boy
A NEWTON Abbot student has been chosen as the new head boy at a boarding school.
Oliver Herrington, aged 15 and a pupil at Brymore School, Somerset, went through a rigorous selection process which included a presentation to the whole school and a nerve-wracking interview with the headteacher, deputy head and outgoing head boy.
The school said Oliver, along with all of the contenders, displayed courage and dignity throughout the process which was designed to challenge all the boys at the highest level.
Mark Thomas, head of Brymore School, said: "As a head boy, I have no doubt that Oliver will display the leadership skills necessary and take on the responsibility like a man."
