Student Leadership

Year 8 Leadership Programme

All our Year 8 students are leaders in our school. Each Year 8 student is a member of a leadership team and has the responsibility of leading the school at various times throughout the year. As well as their leadership responsibilities, each Year 8 student is a role model for the rest of the school.
