Student Leadership

We believe student leadership is one of the essential strands of personal development. We encourage as many students as possible to take on leadership roles in our community and believe this is vital to developing our ethos. The development of leadership provides opportunities for students to develop the characteristics of a successful person and improves academic success, opening doors in the future.

The student leadership team is appointed following a rigorous process that mirrors that of the UCAS process and apprenticeship and job interviews. Roles are advertised through the daily personal development time with their tutor and assemblies. Students then complete a letter of application followed by interviews with the Principal, Vice Principal and Head of Sixth Form.

The sixth form leadership team lead regular student voice activities and communicate outcomes with the Principal and Senior Leadership Team half termly. The team chairs 3 committees; Diversity and Wellbeing, Learning and Teaching and Events, Eco and Charity.
The Diversity and Wellbeing committee work with staff to raise awareness and monitor and improve wellbeing of all.

The Events, Eco and Charity committee aim is to strengthen the academy community across years 7-13, make sustainable links with our wider local community and support the competitive spirit evident within the House System.

The student council is elected from years 7-11 and is made up of 2 students from each of the 8 houses. The Student Council supports the student leadership team and works with the 3 committees and to ensure that all students are involved in decision making.

All Students are provided with opportunities to develop leadership through a variety of creative projects:

  • Peer mentoring
  • Sports Leadership Award
  • House Captains
  • Young Languages Leaders
  • Reading champions
  • Year 11 Prefect System

Jordan France, Student Principal

"In my role as Student Principal, I will mainly centre my focus on the health and wellbeing of students, but also how to engage students with their own education. This is a key aspect for me as I believe it is crucial for students to feel closer to the education system. It is exciting for me knowing that we all will develop with the changes of the academy and all grow as individuals.

A legacy I would love to pass down once I leave is the belief in every student that they have an opportunity to have a voice in this school and that they feel comfortable and safe in the environment they are in.
The Learning and Teaching committee will be trained to feedback on lessons with teachers, contribute to staff training sessions and support students to develop positive learning habits."

Destiny Oduh, Student Vice Principal

"I’ll be working to ensure every student is motivated and dedicated to their learning.

I believe everyone that works hard and is dedicated can achieve outstanding results.

I study 4 A-levels which include maths, biology, psychology and PE; I chose these subjects to aid one of my career choices; a biomechanics engineer. Biomechanics is a rapidly developing sector which will enable me to impact the lifestyle of millions of people around the world.

As a student leadership team, our role is to come up with new ideas which will support students through their educational journey.

I have personally produced two ideas which will benefit and contribute to sixth form and academy learning. I will implement tutor sessions led by sixth form students for lower years as I believe we have gained educational experience and insight which we can pass on. I would also like to suggest study groups. It’s human nature to want to belong to a group and if everyone is within the right group, I believe amazing progress can be achieved, especially when it is study-based."

Luca Sargeant, Student Vice Principal

"I have chosen to study Psychology, Philosophy and Law. Collectively, I had been awarded 3 A*’s and 2 A*’s. I find each subject intellectually stimulating and I’m looking forward to seeing what my next year of study brings.

I am a very disciplined, focused individual and I aim to promote an optimistic culture within the sixth form. I personally have had many ups and downs during my time at the academy, and for this reason I believe I will be a good student vice principal as I can understand individuals’ viewpoints and, in return, influence and guide students in a positive way. I see myself as a very strong role model.

Overall, I am sure we, as a student leadership team, can all agree on the fact that we aim to make the academy environment a better place to work and study, and we aim to allow students to feel more comfortable with the educational system. I think reading is a beneficial habit in which students should partake, and I also think that more positive attitudes should be developed. This will have a great impact on the academy and sixth form."
