A strong emphasis is placed on developing leadership skills, particularly in the senior school. Each Year 13 student is expected to sit on one of a number of committees that organise events and promote key ideas around the school.
Staff and students vote each year as part of the application process for the key offices of Head of School, Head of The Arts and Head of Sports. Each of these positions also has a deputy who works in a support role.
Junior students may also take leadership roles, such as class representative on the School Council, sport team captain or class librarian.
A student representative to the Board of Trustees is elected annually. This important position ensures that an advocate for the student body is part of key decision making processes. The popular and successful Peer Support Programme provides leadership training and opportunities for Year 13 students while also providing support for students in Year 9. A team of fully trained and very approachable senior students forms the Peer Support Committee. These students are available to offer advice to individuals needing help, support or just someone to talk to.
