Meet our Year 7 Student Leaders

Student leadersWe’re extremely proud of the 12 girls from Year 7 have been selected as student leaders.

The 50-strong HAB student leadership team, made up of girls across years 7-10, shows visitors around the school, for example, 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.

“Really impressed”

To join the team, each girl in Year 7 had to complete an application form explaining why she wanted to be a student leader and what she will bring to the team.

“We had 60 applicants for 12 places in Year 7, which is really impressive,” says Ms Harris. “We were looking for girls who are ‘proud of be HAB’, can communicate well with adults and children, and have a good knowledge of what we offer. I was really impressed with the quality of the applications.”


We run special training sessions for student leaders at which older girls can give tips to the newer student leaders, for example. “We encourage girls not to underestimate the role that ‘small talk’ can play in making visitors feel at ease and starting a conversation,” says Ms Harris. “If you ask a visiting primary school child if they like reading, for example, it can be the opening to a conversation about books and the excellent library we have here.”

The student leadership body represents the whole of the student body, including children with special educational needs. “It’s about showing who we are as a complete community," she adds.

All out student leaders will be awarded with a massive pizza and film night in July, to thank them for their hard work.
