Student Leadership Application process and Interview
At Wellacre we firmly believe in providing our students with every opportunity for continued progression and a deeper engagement with their education.
Student Leadership is a central strand of continued student achievement, enabling confidence building to raise aspirations and recognise the talent of all our students. Each Leadership role embodies and promotes our core values of Honesty, Respect, Aspiration, Resilience and Pride.
Throughout each of our five year groups we offer various Student Leadership roles to provide enormous opportunity for personal, communication and advocacy skill growth. Our Leaders are supported to develop their ability to work within a team, helping to provide our student body with an organised voice to inspire our learning community.
All Student Leaders will receive -
- Bespoke training and skills based workshops.
- Opportunities to extend their leadership skills and be part of a wider school team.
- Gain recognition and qualification by undertaking the SSAT Student Leadership Accreditation Programme
- Reward and recognition for all that you do.
We believe that the skills and experience gained by our Student Leaders will help to enrich any future applications for further study and strengthen career prospects.
Interested students have been asked to apply in writing by describing their experiences and skills they feel will enable them to fulfill their chosen role and stating their intentions if selected. Particular note has been made to what each applying student hopes to gain from this role.
After an enthusiastic response, Wellacre is now undergoing the process of selection for two of our Student Leadership roles (Principal Ambassadors and Subject Leaders) with Miss Wicks, Principal conducting interviews before final selection.
Principal Ambassadors will have the responsibility to speak at key school events, such as Open Mornings, Evenings and at Governor presentations. They will be part of a Governing body and meet with our Head Boy to share and reflect upon their learning experiences at Wellacre and will have opportunities to do public speaking
Subject Leaders will serve on a panel of subject consultants and meet periodically with Programme Leaders. They will be encouraged to use their specific subject interest and expertise to help support their chosen faculties and curriculum during School events. They will also be expected to contribute agenda items to student executive meetings.
