Together Students Achieve

Student Voice 

"There are many opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, including through being members of the student council, raising funds for charity and acting as sports team leaders."

Ofsted - February 2017

Student voice can exist in schools in many different ways. It can be through student councils, students observing lessons or even students working on improving how environmentally friendly their school is.

At The Sutton Academy we have a Student Council who represents each year group, along with a Year 11 Student Leadership Team.

About the Role 

This role has a very high profile within the community and involves public speaking at events such as our Open Evening and Awards Evening. Based on the application forms a number of students will be invited to attend an interview to discuss why they want to be Head Boy / Head Girl before a final decision is made.

Becoming a Student Leader is an honour to which students should aspire. Student Leaders are role models and play a major part in shaping the positive image of The Sutton Academy within the local community. The role of a Student Leader is an important one and, if chosen, you will be accepting a position of considerable responsibility. You should be a highly motivated individual with a flexible, supportive and considerate approach to others and who likes working as part of a team. You will also be able to demonstrate good communication and organisational skills build excellent working relationships with staff and have good time management skills. If you are a student with an excellent record of behaviour, attendance and punctuality then you are a suitable candidate.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your leadership skills and play an active part in the life of the academy, helping us deliver our values and aims. You will have the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of activities which will enable you to provide valuable service for our academy community. This is a unique experience that you can use in your applications to higher or further education, or when applying for employment. Student Leaders will act as either Peer Mentors, Academic Mentors, Sports Leaders or Charity Leaders.

Our Student Leadership Team manage the academy Snapchat account.  This is a platform for them to share tips and advice to other students.  This is also used to promote events that occur throughout the academy year.

These 5 students have worked really hard in and out of lessons, and because of their efforts and responsibility as a prefect, they have been appointed the role of Senior Prefect.  They will now become part of the Student Leadership Team.
