Student leadership plays a very important role in the School. Sometimes students take on a pastoral role, for example within Taboo or as a Form Buddy. SAFE, the Student Council, offers very significant opportunities for both operational and strategic leadership. There are also leadership roles which support the academic work of the School. Departments appoint Subject Leaders who take on a variety of roles, including running clubs and activities which enhance the taught curriculum; mentoring other students and joining department meetings to assist with the running of the subject area.
