Student Leadership is key to developing self-confidence and a spirit of service. ‘Student Voice’ is embedded throughout the school and our students are forward-thinking with a strong social conscience. This begins with the first step; taking a position of responsibility in Year 7.
We have a variety of leadership roles: ‘Student Ambassadors’ represent the school to the public; ‘Buddies’ take Year 7 under their wing from the point that they come for their pre-entry visit in Year 6; School Councillors contribute their ideas about how the school could be improved at termly meetings; and Form Captains take a leadership role within their forms. These students will develop into the confident young women who seize senior positions of responsibility in the Sixth Form – whether as House Sports Captain, Prefect, or ultimately as part of the Head Student Team, who liaise with the Head, Deputy Heads, and Head of Sixth Form. Our Head Student is at the pinnacle of student leadership in the school, and they are a key link between staff and students.
