Students have a variety of opportunities to develop their leadership skills across the school and to be involved in making decisions that affect the whole of the school.
Ambassadors have received the Anti-bullying Ambassador badge from The Diana Award to recognise they have a committed team of students who have been trained by The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Team.
The Student Leadership Team is led by our Head Students in Key Stage 5 and gives the opportunities for students in Key Stages 3 and 4 to participate through the Student Development Team and the House Councils:
- Students in Years 10 and 11 can apply and are interviewed to sit on one of 5 committees to represent the views of the peers on specific areas of our Academy.
- Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 can stand to represent their peers on their House Council (2 representatives per tutor group).
Additional opportunities such as acting as Student Leaders, School Ambassadors and Peer Mentoring also arise throughout the academic year and students in Key Stages 4 and 5 are able to apply and are interviewed for these specific posts as and when they arise. These roles include aspects such as acting as our front of house at parent events and whole school events as well as leading events within school including duty, assemblies and supporting in year 7 and 8 tutor groups.
