Enrichment - Student Leadership

Student Leadership

In SKIPS students are given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for secondary education, higher studies and life beyond school.

The Student Leadership opportunities we offer include Student Council, House Captains and Vice Captains, and Eco Council.

Our Student Leadership activities focus on improving the quality of learning and teaching in the classroom, supporting the school’s aim to be a place where everyone enjoys learning and is creative – trying new things, finding solutions and embracing their responsibilities.

The students learn to become "Tomorrow’s Leaders - Here and Now" in lessons too. We have class monitors and, throughout the school during lessons, group work is used to encourage all students to take turns as leaders.

AIMS OF STUDENT LEADERSHIP

  • To empower students to work in partnership with staff towards shared goals.
  • 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 learning, teaching and well-being for both students and staff at SKIPS.
  • To prepare students for higher education and to develop the foundation for achieving personal and professional excellence in life after formal education.
