Head Students and School Prefects – students are invited to apply for these prestigious roles and undergo interviews after writing their own testimonial.
Successful applicants are expected to be positive and enthusiastic, encouraging, and motivating fellow students. In addition, we expect them to be cooperative, helpful, well-mannered, trustworthy, and responsible, respectful toward teachers, their peers, and the school environment. Whilst we recognise that these students are not yet the finished article, we look to see in them these leadership qualities: confidence, initiative, problem-solving skills, compassion, and empathy.
We find when students understand the expectations and appreciate the support they can receive in these roles, they rise wonderfully to each occasion.
Subject Ambassadors: students who show an aptitude in, and a keenness for, a particular academic subject can be selected to get involved in assisting at parent meetings for IGCSE and A Level Option choices. Parents and students alike have found this first-hand experience from students particularly helpful, through their thoughtful explanations of course content and examination board requirements.
Leadership Courses: no student can be expected to be a born leader, so we run leadership courses for our senior students to assit them in the taking and displaying or responsibility within a secure and supportive environment. The course leaders have high profile track records in Leadership from diverse fields.
At this current stage these leadership courses are available only to students in Years 12 and 13.
