There are a wide range of opportunities students have to take on leadership roles at the college including leadership in the following areas: academic, character, enrichment and student council. Additionally our sixth form students have a further opportunity to apply for a range of prestigious and high profile leadership roles and responsibilities. 
 

Sixth Form Leaders

'LEADERSHIP AND LEARNING ARE INDISPENSABLE TO EACH OTHER'  JOHN F. KENNEDY 

Our Student Leadership Team consists of our Head Girl and Head Boy, who are supported by a team of Deputy Heads and Assistant Heads. Their work is aimed at supporting other students and developing opportunities in the College.

These leadership positions are highly prestigious roles and securing them is a competitive process! The students first write a letter of application, which is followed by participation in a range of interview activities. If they are selected from this group they have an individual interview before the final decision is made. We believe these these students are inspiring role models for all students in the College.

The teams work on a variety of areas, from helping to run college events to providing academic support for younger students. They are fundamental in ensuring the smooth running of events and continuing our drive to provide the very best experiences we can for our students, and we are very lucky to have such a high calibre of student applying for these roles.
