This year 22 students from across Years 7-11 were selected onto the Student Leadership Team. These students put themselves forward to go through an application process and join the team where maturity and pride is essential.

Students selected attend regular meetings both together as a team, and with the Senior Leadership Team, every term to discuss any issues and potential changes to academy life. The Student Leadership Team also play an active role in key events at the academy such as open evening and parent consultation evenings. Students are not only involved with these events but also play an integral part of recruitment of staff including student panel interviews and tours of the academy.
