Sample 1: “Cover letter for a head boy”

“Dear Sir/Madam

I firmly believe I have the skills, experience and personal qualities necessary to represent the school as Head Boy. I am a conscientious and well respected student who consistently gives up their free time. During my time at Shevington, I have developed many qualities, the main ones being strong leadership skills and excellent communication skills.

I began my first year at Shevington, in the mainstream groups, however, through concentrating my efforts and improving myself, I managed to progress into the gifted and talented class in my second year of high school. Furthermore, I have consistently applied myself to the best of my ability in all subjects on the curriculum. This is reflected in all of my screenings and school reports; for example my most recent screening included 98% greens showing that I have overachieved or exceeded the targets set by my teachers.

Throughout my school career I have taken part in various activities; for example as I am considered to be a confident speaker, I was selected for the Youth Speaks Team where we managed to reach the semi-finals. Since then, I have spoken in front of wider audiences, including several assemblies and at Saint Anne’s church where I regularly read at services. Furthermore, I have also taken part in a range of fundraising events for charities, notably, the 3k race which I am proud to say I won. Moreover, the upside to this was raising £71.00 for the Joining Jack charity. Some of my other charity work includes sponsored car washes, baking cakes, and competitions; this clearly demonstrates my organisational skills, as well as my passion for helping and inspiring others. As I am very dedicated and committed to the life of school, I have attended numerous awards evenings where I have received various accolades for my behaviour, leadership skills and subject awards.

One of the advantages of being considered as a trustworthy and conscientious student is that I am frequently selected to show visitors around the school at Open Evenings, staff tours and I was even asked by my old primary school to give 15 Romanian visitors a VIP tour around the school, most of Wigan Town Centre, and the mayor’s office. I am also firmly dedicated to supporting groups inside and outside of school. Within school, I am firmly committed to assisting with toe by toe, chess club, the upcoming youth speaks team, and helping the younger pupils to train safely in the gym. Whilst outside of school I have enjoyed coaching a local football club, where I take part in helping the youngsters develop their skills; sometimes, I have been asked to assist the instructors at my Jiu Jitsu classes by teaching the younger martial artists various techniques and I have even taken on full classes. Furthermore, I have also taken part in coaching young people with skill wise during half term. This clearly demonstrates my initiative, eagerness and maturity, especially when working with younger people.

I have found it really encouraging when teachers have commented on my kind and caring nature. Pupils of all ages have been able to approach me and make requests for the next School Council meetings or ask questions. Furthermore I have received positive feedback from parents during the open evenings and I feel I have represented the school to a high standard. Furthermore, in public, people have often commented on my polite nature and have praised both the school and myself, therefore demonstrating my ability to represent Shevington High School in a positive manner!

I firmly believe that I have the characteristics to be an ambassador for Shevington High school. I aim to be an inspiration and an outstanding role-model to everyone; my fitness was improved through self-motivation and effort, so was my school work. My motto has always been, “do not waste any opportunity you get-through hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything”!

I remain

yours sincerely”

“Dear Mr King,

I would hereby like to formally apply for the vacant position of Head boy at Brookes Moscow, as advertised.

I believe that I would be able to make a considerable contribution to the school community if given this opportunity as I am principled, caring, knowledgeable and a good communicator. I feel that since I have had the opportunity to live in multiple countries and got to experience their different cultures, I will be able to be a good ambassador for Brookes, Moscow.

By being Principled, I understand the responsibility that comes with the position of being Head boy and that time management is a major part of getting things done, in a timely fashion. With this in mind, I have a good reputation as my homework is always done on time, I am always honest and always try my best in everything I do.

Through my Caring nature, I always take other’s feelings into consideration and will make sure that everyone is treated equally and fairly under my watch, and that all students at Brookes Moscow get an equal opportunity to become the best version of themselves that they can. I believe that everyone has a right to their opinions and that I would be able to give all students a voice that can be heard.

I consider myself to be a global citizen, and that living and attending IB schools in three different countries up to now have developed my understanding of a range of disciplines and world cultures. I like to share my knowledge with others and have a good work ethic, that allows me to find out what I don’t know, and don’t allow my ego to stand in the way to ask for help when needed.

I believe that the most important aspect of being a good communicator is listening. Listening for understanding, and not just listening to reply. Sometimes all a person wants is to be heard, and half the time they don’t even need an answer. We have two ears and only one mouth, so we should listen twice as much as what we speak.

I will use my life experiences and learn from those around me, to keep improving myself and better the skills needed to make a success of the position, should it be entrusted to me.

Because of my past experiences, I see things a lot different compared to others and that makes me open-minded and respectful to their feelings and opinions.

Thank you for taking your time to review my application.

Yours sincerely,


Sample 3: “Cover letter for a head boy”

“Dear [name],

Position of Head Boy

I am writing to express my feelings on becoming the school’s Head Boy. As expected I’m happy to have been given this position, and I will now hope to show why I’m happy to have become your Head Boy.

Since the first day I attended Unity High School I set my goals on becoming the school’s Head Boy one day. As you can imagine, I’m very happy that my dream came true. Perhaps you are wondering how this became my goal. In the first day of my first year in Unity High School my mother introduced me to the head boy of that year. I recall his name was Garou (for short). He inspired mainly by the way he greeted me. He said “hi,” as if I was his own friend, and that made me look up to him and want to be him, and not just because he was very popular. That, however, was only half the reason why I wanted to become Head Boy. The other half was that I always loved to serve this school as it has given me a lot and I thought to myself the only way I can accomplish this and give something back is by becoming Head Boy so that was my main inspiration .

Now that I’m Head Boy I have been given many responsibilities which I have expected and which I enjoy very much. These responsibilities make me feel happy and proud as they give me the feeling that I am a teue part of this school. Of course none of this would possible if we didn’t have the support of our Vice Principal Ms. Stephanie King. She is the reason for our happiness!”
