Our students are our best ambassadors, and our student leaders are our school’s role models. There are a range of different Student Leadership opportunities available including membership of our Junior Leadership Team (JLT). This group is led by our Year 11 Senior Student Leaders and is made up of 4 students from each year group from Year 7 to Year 11. They meet monthly with the Headteacher and other senior leaders.

Together the Junior Leadership Team will:

· Be a positive role model and set a good example at all times to other students through compliance with school rules, regular attendance, punctuality, appropriate dress and good presentation, responsible behaviour at all times, achieving a positive work rate and meeting deadlines with homework / coursework.

· Exhibit positive personal qualities such as reliability, responsibility, leadership skills, communication skills, co-operation with both peers and adults, self-discipline, politeness, confidence to speak in public, helpfulness and be capable of earning the respect of peers and adults.

· Act as mentor or ‘buddy’ for younger students, offering help, support and advice.

· Act as the voice of the student body in JLT meetings

· Willingly assist with the smooth running of the school during the school day by regularly and reliably performing duties.

· Act as Ambassadors for the school at school events, within both the school and local community.

· Be involved with all aspects of school life, both within the school day and in their own time including extra-curricular activities, inter-house events, charity work, house assemblies and trips.

· Be willing to give up their own time when required to assist with events such as Open Evening, Induction & Parents’ Evenings and Presentation Evenings.

· Play a significant part in the settling in of the new Year 7 students, by supporting the Year 6 students throughout their induction visit / transition to GSHS and when they join the school in September.

· Show initiative and be able to work independently and as part of a team, in order to generate new ideas and develop them
