      Our Aim:

      • To provide a range of opportunities across school – to develop students’ leadership skills.
      • To enable younger students to become leaders in areas that they are confident in – not just Y11 students.

      Why aim to become a leader?

      • Develop your character.
      • Become more confident and resilient, develop communication skills, teamwork skills, organisation skills.
      • You may enjoy it.
      • Experience. Build your CV and help you to prepare for life outside of school.
      • Prepare for your future – leadership roles can lead to increased salaries. 

      Not everyone wants to be a leader.

      • If you do want to develop these skills however there are ample opportunities at our school, as well as outside of school (Scouts/Guides/Cadets/Sports Teams etc)
      • At Freddies there is capacity for over 400 students to become involved in leadership opportunities – this does not include curriculum based activities eg public speaking in English, BTec Sports Studies Leadership Unit in PE.
