Brighton College

Brighton College Al Ain is thrilled to announce the appointment of Melis Cevik as Head Girl and Brody Bell as Head Boy.

The two Year 13 pupils were selected after a rigorous interview process and will represent the pupil body for the coming academic year. Melis and Brody will take on many new responsibilities including leading the prefect team and acting as ambassadors for the College at official events and occasions.

Brody is currently studying History, Economics and English Literature at A-Level. He says, “The final task of our application process was to prepare a short presentation in response to the question, ‘What is the greatest gift you believe you can give to the college as a Head Prefect?’ It was during this task that I truly realised what I aimed to achieve in applying for Head Boy: to be able to offer the college community a sense of confidence. Initially, I had applied after being a prefect in Year 12, House Captain in Year 11, House Representative in Year 8 and Head Boy in Year 6 at my primary school as I felt strongly that I succeeded and enjoyed leadership roles. The process of applying made me realise though that I wished to gain the position of Head Boy for much more than that. Upon receiving the news from Mr Jones, I was truly overjoyed and overwhelmingly proud of myself. Having been given the opportunity to give back to the College during my final year here makes me very excited, both for myself and the College community as a whole, and I look forward to working alongside every branch of the College to make Brighton College Al Ain even better for pupils and staff alike.”

Melis who is currently studying Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A-level says, “Having been a part of the tight-knit community of Brighton College Al Ain for almost 7 years, I myself have had numerous opportunities to express and share my passions with the school community, given to me by previous leaders of the school. As Head Girl, I hope to pay this warm welcome back to my community and create opportunities for people to express their interests and engage in their passions in school. I was genuinely delighted when I received the news of my appointment to this important leadership role and am looking forward to working alongside Brody, the Prefect Team and the teachers to create an energetic and enthusiastic community in Brighton College.”

Mr Jones, Head of Sixth Form, was particularly pleased with the quality of applications received for these prestigious positions. He said, “The field of applicants for these roles was hugely impressive this year. All applicants rose to the challenge of online recruitment with resilience, tenacity and talent, and choosing from such an impressive pool of leaders was extremely difficult. Brody and Melis are brilliant role models for our wider College community, embodying and championing our College values, and we are all really excited to see how their leadership will enrich the College over the coming year”.
