The Role of the Sixth Form
The role of sixth form students in the life of the school is vital if we are to continue to be a thriving and high performing school which speaks for all its students. Students will be encouraged to contribute formally and informally in a number of ways and through a variety of democratic structures. All roles on student leadership will be advertised and students will be allowed to apply for positions of responsibility at various stages in the academic year.
Roles within student leadership open to all year 12 Students
The head students lead the student body. They have a pivotal role in both the house system and in the broader student voice. The head students run the four main committees of the school council.
The house system at STAGS cannot function without the input of House Captains. Each house has two House Captains who lead all charity events and competitions.
Each form in years 7-10 are provided with two yea r12 House Prefects. Their job is to help the form teacher and lead the form in extra-curricular activities including charity and sports events.
The school has a great tradition of sporting excellence. Key in making sure this continues is the role of the Games Captain. The two Games Captains run the Sports Committee, help organise interhouse sports events and help at after school fixtures.
Library and Careers Prefects
Students fulfilling these roles help with the smooth running of two areas of the school heavily used at lunchtime by the school community.
As a result of the increase in fundraising activity at the school the head students have had to hand over some of their responsibilities to two student leaders who lead in whole school charity fund raising. They will ensure that all students are aware of National events like Children in Need, Red Nose day and plan events accordingly.
