Pupil Leadership Team

The Pupil Leadership Team empowers pupils within our school and wider community to become ambassadors for the school. The Pupil Leadership Team plays an extremely important role in the school by representing the student voice with their views on changes and improvements to school life. Members of the Pupil Leadership Team have to demonstrate qualities such as the use of initiative; being a good role model to their peers and being able to share their ideas with others. Pupils must also be trustworthy, honest, well-mannered and patient, all important skills to have when they move on to the next stages of their education and career. 

The Pupil Leadership Team is a collaborative and pupil-led group with representation across years 7 to 11. It operates a policy of equality, respect and integrity. Each committee within the Pupil Leadership Team meets weekly and is responsible for the direction of their area of responsibility including the meeting agenda and feedback to the full Pupil Leadership Team. 

The aim of the Pupil Leadership Team is to ensure that every pupil has a voice in the issues which impact on school life and the local community. This is achieved through open discussion with pupils and staff to help ensure the school’s strategic direction will be beneficial to the pupils.
