  • Develop an effective student leadership model that enables all students to develop key leadership competencies and skills
  • Develop opportunities for students’ views to be taken into account when strategic decision about the academy’s future development are being considered
  • Develop a culture of student involvement in the life of the academy
  • Develop a culture of student involvement in the life of the local community
  • Ensure that students’ views are a key driver to the integration process of the boys and the girls’ school
