Student Leadership is now an integral part of life at The High Arcal School. All students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through the Student Leadership Framework. Students Leadership is recognised as a strength of The High Arcal School both locally and nationally. Students also have international opportunities to develop their leadership skills.
There is a wide range of student leadership roles within school as well as an array of leadership opportunities embedded across the curriculum, from the more traditional Head Boy / Girl and School Council to newer roles such as Student Journalists and Peer Mentors plus a wealth of opportunities to develop leadership and take responsibility for learning across the curriculum and key stages.
Mr Tilley, Student Leadership Co-ordinator oversees leadership development and opportunities across the school. Mr Riccardo, the House Leadership Co-ordinator works closely with House Officials and departmental staff to create a full and ever increasing programme of activity. In addition to this, we also hold training events and work closely with local schools to assist them in their development of student leadership.
Student Leadership is recognised, rewarded and showcased through a variety of means. High Arcal School leavers have cited their leadership development as something that sets them apart from others when applying to further education establishments.
