    Applying for head girl... could you tell me what you think?

    Dear _____,

    Please accept this letter as my expression of interest for the position of Head Girl, commencing September 2013. In structuring my response, and pondering on exactly what to say, I found myself asking three questions; What is the role of Head Girl? What would being Head Girl mean to me? Why am I the right girl?

    What is the role of Head Girl?
    The role of a Head Girl is without question one of great importance, playing a critical role, internally and externally; internally, not someone of greater importance than the rest of the Sixth Form, but someone with the ability to work effectively within a team and yet still demonstrate leadership. The role of the
    Head Girl requires the ability to inspire those around you, whilst equally being motivated yourself to create a calm, comfortable and memorable environment for what can be an extremely stressful final year. Equally internally, the role goes beyond the sixth form, spanning the rest of the school; listening, supporting and most significantly giving equal importance to every student whether they be a new starter in year 7 or a year 9 trying to understand and decide what options they should choose.

    Externally, the role supports the reputation of the school, given the political picture with Academy schools this is key and I see this role supporting you and the other teachers in developing our reputation.

    What would being Head Girl mean to me?
    First and foremost I recognise the significant and demanding nature of this role. Having spoken to teachers and current members the Head Girl team, I am excited by the challenge the role presents and cannot think of a more rewarding way to conclude my final year at _____ I have never been one to cower from a challenge, for example taking on Music as a GCSE subject when it wasn’t naturally one of my strengths. I will embrace this role and provide a valued interface between the teachers and students. Secondly, I want to leave this school knowing I have given something back and made a difference. *what can i add here about making a difference? how can i suggest i can make a difference?*

    I have spent many hours within the school, and so many of the staff have gone the "extra mile" for me.

    Being Head Girl would mean I could go the "extra mile" for others; something I envisage in the role would be to set up a drop in advice ‘clinic’ for younger students who perhaps feel they could not approach a member of staff; I hope to offer guidance and support, as I strongly believe that a problem shared is a problem halved.

    Why am I the right girl?
    Over the last five years that I have spent at ____ I have come to understand many things including responsibility, hard work, commitment and confidence. When I reflect on my five years here, I can't say it has all been easy. From initially struggling in lessons to broken friendships, I have faced many challenges. However, being here has taught me resilience and shear determination to the extent that I achieved my goal of gaining 11A*'s at GCSE. Beyond academic achievements, I have also enjoyed myself. Enjoyment is a key element in the experience of school; I have found that if you are content and happy in your working environment then you will naturally work harder and put more effort into both school work and extra-curricular activities, which equally both contribute, to creating a well-rounded student. I would try my hardest to make sure that younger members of our school were able to enjoy themselves in an environment where they can flourish.

    I believe I have always set an example; I am passionate, approachable, determined, motivated and above all, genuine.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Yours Sincerely

    This is fab! I think you cover everything really well; and answer any questions the reader may have! It's really nicely worded as well.
    For the part you want to add more to, about making a difference, could you suggest a particular project you'd like to work on? A charity you'd like to work towards supporting? An event you'd like to run? Is the Head Girl in charge of prefects or anything like that? Prom? Or perhaps introducing a new peer mentor scheme or something similar? Even just impacting on the individual student who aspires to be like you or seeks advice from you?
