  • Have leadership opportunities at local, regional and national levels 
  • Create a personalised leadership/sporting/creative studies action plan in relation to individual performance targets

The Academy will:

  • Communicate with local sports, musical and arts clubs and work together to enable students to achieve set targets
  • Monitor academic progress to ensure expected targets are being met 
  • Organise work experience placements at community based organisations
  • Ensure there is engagement with parents/carers through parents evenings, termly reports and access to their child's mentor

The Leadership Academy will reflect and encourage a commitment to continuous improvement and create a positive and optimistic 'can do' attitude among students and staff as well as collectively across the school.
