Student Leaders take up their duties
This year, the Academy has introduced a new level of responsibility for groups of students who have been appointed as Student Leaders for each year group.
Students who were interested in taking up this role were asked to make an application which was looked at by Directors of Learning who then created a short list of students to interview. 25 students were then notified that they had been successful and were going to represent their year group in a range of different ways.
Wearing their special Leader's ties, their first task was to go round to all the classes to collect donations for the British Legion Poppy Appeal. Over the rest of the year, they will be contributing to the organisation of other charity and Academy events.
As well as this, they are expected to be role models for other students and to be a 'voice' for their individual year groups.
