Student Leadership Programme

Student Leadership Programme

Our Student Leadership Programme helps to provide all students with opportunities to develop and practice leadership skills that prepare them well for future success and life beyond school.

Through student voice and student action we can harness the full potential of our fabulously diverse student body and build the strongest sense of togetherness between students, staff, governors, parents/carers and our local community partners.

Student leaders across all year groups work together in action groups to drive positive change in a number of important areas.  These are:

Inclusion, Diversity and Community Cohesion
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Environment & Sustainability
Charity & Fundraising
Media, Marketing & Promotions Action Group
Wider Curriculum Development

Aims of our Student Leadership programme
To empower students to work in partnership with staff, parents/carers, governors and community partners towards shared goals and promote the school’s core values

  • To enable creativity to flourish as the school community benefits from the wealth of experiences, ideas, skills and sense of fun that students bring
  • To provide opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through a variety of inspiring, challenging and valued projects which impact positively on all members of our school community
  • To prepare students for their next steps into The Crossley Heath School 6th Form Leadership Team, apprenticeships, higher education and for achieving personal and professional excellence in life after formal education
