We recruit student leaders to represent the school at events and be guides at our open days, for example.
The 50-strong HAB student leadership team is made up of girls across years 7-10, who shows visitors around the school and offer tours to parents and prospective students on open days.
“It’s our students who really ‘sell’ the academy so having a group of leaders who are confident about doing this is important,” says Lyndsay Harris, Assistant Principal, who co-ordinates the programme.
All girls can apply and we invite them to complete a form and have a short interview with a member of senior staff. The leaders regularly meet as a group and receive training to develop their leadership skills.
