Student Leadership

Student Leadership

In order to fulfil your purpose in life and improve the world in your own unique way, you will want to take up positions of responsibility and leadership throughout your life. There are lots of opportunities to take on leadership responsibilities at Uckfield College.

Right from the start in Year 7, students can get involved:
  1. Form Representatives. These meet regularly with your Director of Year.
  2. Year Representatives on College Council. These meet weekly with Mr Hennebry and student leaders from all year groups. The role of College Council is to discuss important issues e.g. how is learning supported (learning organisers, MyACE, revision etc.), mental health support, catering, improving facilities, consultation on possible uniform changes, which charities will we support and how e.g. non-uniform days etc. There are notes (minutes with actions) made for each College Council meeting. College Council members are expected to discuss these issues with Form Representatives and consult students widely on the issues being discussed.
