Student Leadership

The academy encourages students to play an active part in their school and wider community through a wide range of volunteering, student voice and leadership opportunities including: our Sixth Form Student Leadership Group; a Student Council, with representatives from all year groups; Prefects; elected House Captains; and our end of term survey.

Our Student Council – representatives from the four Houses – meet once a month to discuss student-led issues and ideas for the academy’s improvement and development. The Council also conduct lesson observations and feedback their conclusions to the Senior Leadership Team as part of an ongoing cycle of evaluation and review.

The Student Council also leads on annual fundraising projects for a charity of the year chosen by our students.
