Student Leadership Programme
The Student Leadership Programme aims to develop leadership skills, soft skills and raise the profile of student voice. Scholars will have the opportunities to volunteer and help at school events, receive leadership training, complete duties and hold student voice meetings.
The student leadership team at AGFS is comprised of the senior team made up of Year 10-11 scholars. This team includes:
The senior team goes through a rigorous selection process, which includes completing an application form and providing a reference. Shortlisted candidates attend an interview with former alumni as the interview panel. Those successful, move through to the next stage and participate in a debate that takes place during assembly. Fellow scholars and staff cast their votes and Mr Spiers selects the final team when he reviews the results. This senior team will be in place from the beginning of next term. Year 7’s will have a similar opportunity at the beginning of the year to put themselves forward as a form rep. Young student leaders and senior student leaders lead their own student voice meetings. Senior student leaders complete lunch duties, contribute and lead school events and receive leadership training. Our student leader team are proud to bridge the gap between teachers and scholars, have a say to improve the school whilst developing leadership qualities that prepare them for the real world.
