Welcome to the student leadership area of our website. At Swanshurst, we believe that student leadership is one of the central strands of success. Through collaboration with staff, governors, parents and the local community, we can take an active role in shaping the student experience – both inside and outside of the classroom.
The student leaders at Swanshurst are led by the Head Student and Deputy Head Student from Year 12. Along with the Student Leadership Coordinator and SLT, they will run the 6 school council meetings that will take place throughout the course of the year. In attendance at these council meetings will also ambassadors representing all year groups throughout the school and sixth form following meetings of their year council.
During the School Council meetings, items relating to “Teaching and Learning”, “Community and Pastoral” and “Enrichment and Environment” along with other issues will be discussed and actioned. Finally, the school council decisions will be fed back to their year group in termly assemblies led by the ambassadors.
All of these student leaders are democratically elected by the Swanshurst community – both staff and students. We also have 70-80 prefects selected from Year 10 who will carry out duties around the school and support subjects and lower school forms. We will use this website to update you about the progress that we are making and the projects that each committee is working on.
