Student Ambassadors

Each year students in Stages 2 and up may apply for the position of Student Ambassador for the following academic year. Students apply for the role by submitting a letter detailing why they would like the role and what they believe they can contribute to the school. All applications are reviewed and candidates are interviewed. They then present their candidacy to the rest of the Stage and learners are voted for by their peers. Successful candidates must be approved by the school director with the following factors being taken into account:

  • Attendance and punctuality
  • Presentability
  • Involvement in and contribution to school events
  • General attitude towards school and schoolwork
  • Behaviour
  • Ability to work in a team
  • Communication skills
  • Understanding of the school values
  • Interest in helping others, including new students

Our student ambassadors attend regular meetings, led by members of our Senior Management Team and/or school directors and are given a number of responsibilities including:

  • Welcoming new and prospective students
  • Acting as a class representative during Ambassador Meetings
  • Representing the school during whole school events
  • Speaking at assemblies and other events
  • Raising awareness of the school ethos and values
  • Acting as a role model

Ambassadors are given opportunities to develop a range of skills and will be able to list this role on their CVs and applications to university. They will practice public speaking skills during weekly line-ups and other events and will be expected to assist in the preparation and execution of whole school events. They will have the opportunity to make a difference and to inspire others. Towards the end of the academic year, student ambassadors will speak to younger students about their experience and encourage others to apply for the position in future years.
