Student Leadership – Key Skills in Leadership from Prep Upwards

The Student Leadership Teams at Thorpe Hall School give students from Year 6 to Year 11 distinct opportunities to develop leadership skills for life. They receive mentoring and guidance and are supported to deliver a variety of projects, which will all have a positive impact on Thorpe Hall School. They will focus on five key areas: Wellbeing, Pretty Tough, Teaching and Learning, Environment and Sustainability and Student Voice.

This year, there are now Student Leadership Teams from Prep, Pre G (Year 9), Lower G (Year 10), and Upper G (Year 11). These teams will be ensuring students have a voice, leading change, and making a positive impact at Thorpe Hall School. They will help embed Thorpe Hall’s shared mission:

 “To create collisions with opportunities for all learners so that they can dream with their eyes open, achieve their ambitions and positively impact the world.”

We want them to leave a legacy that they can be proud of and we are really looking forward to seeing their impact on the School.


Inspirational Input for our Student Leaders

We are delighted to have the input and insight of entrepreneurial business leader Mrs Elle Beadle supporting this initiative. Many of you may know her from her involvement with local children’s charity Packed With Smiles, and Elle is kindly now offering her time to help support the school with their student leadership strategy. She will be giving insight from her wealth of leadership, strategic, communication and management experience, and we’re delighted to be able to offer such a unique opportunity to our students.
