“The academy has a very good level of awareness about the ‘Prevent’ programme.” Ofsted 2016
At Upper Shirley High School, the school council is very important, allowing the student body to be engaged and involved with important decisions that affect our future at the school. We are lucky to have students of every house and year groups in our council so we are representative of our whole school.
Hi! We are Tom Hayter and Molly Robinson, Head Boy and Head Girl and Isi Levene and Katherine Brocklesby, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl.
At the beginning of term we were asked to talk in assembly about what the Student Leadership Team is and why it's important to get involved. Whilst preparing it really got us thinking about how we would like the remainder of our time at USH to look like. The past 4 years have gone so fast, but we are now face to face with the year that really counts. We really wanted to instil our vision and put across that the students themselves have the power of making a change to their own learning. This being said, we also wanted to stress the importance of having fun, and enjoying their time at school as the time really does fly by!
We are honoured to be the ones who are able to voice the students’ opinions and suggestions on their learning and school, and make USH the ideal place for all the students. As we were elected by the students and staff, we really appreciate the trust and support that others have given us, and hope to use this level of responsibility to make some real changes this year.
Looking forward at our new leadership positions, we believe that this year we can really help inspire all the students of Upper Shirley High push themselves and achieve the best they can for the school and the best they can for themselves. This year working together is key, and we look forward to building links with all areas of the school.
Tom, Molly, Isi and KatherineContact
