About Student Leadership Team roles
We strongly encourage leadership and mentoring opportunities for students, which allows them to get to know and work with students from all years.
In a process beginning in Year 10, a Head Boy and Girl are appointed, together with deputies and a team of prefects. As the Student Leadership Team, these students are given the opportunity to influence decision making at the Academy, helping to shape the school for the benefit of their fellow students.
Other leadership roles give students recognition as:
• Student Ambassadors, representing the Academy as hosts at public events
• Sports Leaders who demonstrate commitment and passion to sporting excellence
• Peace Ambassadors who help to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all students
• Heads of Community, championing fundraising and inter-Community activities throughout the year
Students taking these roles are also invited to represent the student body on a Safeguarding and Wellbeing Committee.
Towards the end of Year 7, students are invited to apply for mentoring roles in Year 8, to support and guide the transition to secondary school for the new intake.
All of our student leadership roles empower students to work creatively in partnership with others to achieve shared goals, as well as provide ongoing training that will prove invaluable skills for their future development.
