Student Leadership

New leadership roles available – Closing date for applications 12th November!

See booklet linked below for more details.

Student Leadership is the foundation to developing character and confidence; at Newland we provide wealth of opportunity for our students develop the necessary skills to be successful within a leadership role.

We are extremely proud of the 297 students that held a leadership role last year, establishing themselves as a role model within the school, and embracing the challenges that they faced along the way.   This year we are aiming to extend the opportunities further, so that even more girls can have the same access to developing such essential life skills. All of the Student leaders receive training within the role and are provided with a number of experiences during the year in which to apply their newly acquired skills.

Here are a number of the student leadership role that are available within the school. Should you wish to find out more, please contact Mrs Edwards by email or contact at school on 01482 343098.
