Student Leadership

At Huntington School we feel that all our students benefit from the fact that we have a sixth form. Our sixth form students are positive role models and are a daily source of inspiration to younger students. Many of them engage in activities in school that involve supporting and leading others, these include in-form support, paired reading, and supporting with extra-curricular clubs.

Since September 2023  we have been delivering training to all of our sixth formers as we set up the ‘Student Leadership Accreditation’, which we are going to support them all to achieve. This is a way of recognising their leadership skills and the impact they have in the classroom, across the school, and in the wider community. Students will assess themselves against a framework and they will be supported to actively seek opportunities to advance themselves and gather evidence to showcase their new skills in a portfolio. A Teams page has been created with support resources and students can work towards the accreditation at three levels: bronze, silver and gold.

The award will provide the students with valuable evidence of their all-round achievements when applying for colleges, universities, or jobs. Additionally, many of the skills students use in the process will reinforce key learning competencies. 

We are so proud of how engaged the students have been so far with the training. We look forward to seeing how it progresses and watching our sixth formers inspire the younger students to see what is possible and help them to be aspirational and ambitious.
