In their new roles, Tom and Shannon, who are in Year 13, will get involved with open evenings and other Academy events and will form part of the school council. They will also give a presentation at KSA's sixth form open evening and will have active roles in the Academic committee.
Tom said: "It's a challenge - I wanted to develop my leadership skills and I enjoy speaking to an audience. I think to be successful in this role, you need good organisation skills as well as confidence."
Shannon added: "I'm looking forward to having a go at things I wouldn't have had the chance to do otherwise, as well as having more say in things."
