Leadership skills and responsibility are promoted through the adoption of a number of roles across the school. All those in such roles can be identified by the badges that they proudly wear:
Head Boy, Head Girl and 6th Form President
Students nominate and vote for a President from the Sixth Form and a Head Boy and Head Girl from Year 11 who represent the school at events and are ambassadors to the younger students in school. The current post-holders are:
Nicole Baxter, Sixth Form President;
Baden Millard and Jo Johnston as Head Boy/Girl in Y11, with Reece Wilkin and Holly Roberts as deputies.
Year 11 students support the discipline of their peers and younger students in the dining hall during the lunch hour, helping the smooth running of systems. They act as role models to younger students.
Students from across the year groups have been trained to identify and support other students who might be being bullied. Their role is to ensure that incidents are reported and dealt with and any victims are supported appropriately.
Students in year 10 help students in year 8 who need support with their reading. The Accelerated Reader scheme enables students to test their understanding and the support offered by the older students can help build skills and confidence.
Year 9 students have the opportunity to develop and practise their leadership skills through sport, supporting primary school activities throughout the year.
Each tutor group from across the school provides at least one representative for the Student Council, supporting school policy, fund-raising and leadership.
Departments adopt Departmental Leaders as they are required. Responsibilities include lunchtime and break supervision of departmental areas and support for staff as required.
