Student Leadership

Our student leadership team mirrors the staffing structure of the academy so that every faculty, hub and student is represented. Student leaders are chosen through a whole-school election that involves applications, campaigning, assembly presentations and a final day of voting.

The Student Leadership Team is open to any member of the student body. Through our student leadership team, every student has a voice in the running of the Academy, and a chance to bring about positive change. The aim of the team is to bring about developments in teaching and learning, behaviour and students’ experiences so that students are happy and can thrive in our community.


Our 2019-20 Student Leaders

Congratulations to all boys who applied. We’re pleased to introduce our senior school leaders for 2019-20.

Head Boy - Diego

DiegoThe voting for Head Boy was extremely close, with only one vote in it!  In his campaign, Diego, Year 10, said:

“I believe that every student should have their voice heard. I believe that our school should be a place not only to learn but a place to build lasting memories. I believe that we should have engaging lessons and become active citizens within a community larger than our individual classrooms.

If you vote for me, I will strive to make developments in the school in specific areas such as music, drama, science and PE. If we gain more investment in those departments then we can improve practical works and future trip ideas. The PE department already have a lot of investment and a lot of facilities, such as Kings College Sports Ground, but we can still improve equipment.

I also believe that there should be more opportunities for our students for extra-curricular activities. Some of my propositions include a cooking club and an environmental club which can set up trips for all those interested in the climate emergency challenge.

Thank you for your time. If you vote for me, I will be confident and active in bringing about positive change to our academy and will listen to you, the people.”
