Student Leadership at Holy Family

At Holy Family Catholic High School we believe that students should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school. Below is what is currently on offer to develop pupil’s leadership skills within school.  Many Student Leadership activities will focus on improving the quality of  learning and teaching in the classroom, supporting the school’s aim to be a place where everyone enjoys learning and is creative – trying new things, finding solutions and embracing their responsibilities.

Aims of our Student Leadership programme -

  • To empower students to work in partnership with staff towards shared goals.  

  • To enable creativity to flourish as the school community benefits from the wealth of experiences, ideas, skills and sense of fun that students bring.  

  • To provide opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through a variety of inspiring, challenging and valued projects which impact positively on learning, teaching and well-being for both students and staff at Holy Family Catholic High School.  

1. Student Leader/Form captains: Every student at HFCHS is entitled to have their voice heard.  Form Captains raise areas for discussion and for hearing, and abiding by, the outcomes. The Student Leadership provides a forum where representatives from all year groups raise, discuss and propose resolutions about issues which are important to the students they represent. Form captain meetings will provide opportunities for students to take on leadership roles.  Form captain representatives are responsible for gathering information from the students they represent and for feeding back after meetings. 

2. Student Ambassadors: After careful selection and training, Year 7-11 students represent the school to visitors. This includes meeting and greeting, organising tours and providing thoughtful information about the school.  Ambassadors work closely with teachers when delivering primary liaison and are excellent role models to prospective new pupils.  Ambassadors represent the school at open evening and are a direct link between school and parents. Students are trained in how to form an interview panel and will question applicants during externally advertised posts.

3. Subject Leaders: A selection of pupils from all ability levels have been trained in mentoring younger pupils on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning.  Subject Leaders can be called upon to model answers and work with all pupils when needed by their teachers.  Sixth form students are given the opportunity to mentor individual pupils in lower school, this will develop communication skills and give subject leaders to improve their planning and delivery skills.

4. Sports Leaders: Students work with the PE department in delivering sporting events on primary visit days and are responsible for setting up equipment and leading small groups within school to improve skills. Sports leaders are there to inspire pupils to enjoy sport and live a healthy active lifestyle.
