Student Leaders Accreditation
The Year 9 student leaders have been working towards an accreditation which acknowledges all the experiences, opportunities and work leaders have done over the past year. The student leader accreditation is awarded by a company called SSAT, who specialise in helping students to set high expectations of themselves and strive towards their aspirations.
The students are required to complete a portfolio of evidence, demonstrating different skills and qualities they have acquired and developed whilst being a student leader. They rate their acquired skills according to whether they achieved a bronze, silver or gold standard.
Many of the student leaders are working towards a sliver award, which is a great achievement as this is usually aimed at KS4 students. A couple of students are working towards a gold award, which is usually aimed at KS5 students, and therefore really demonstrates the commitment, aspiration and enthusiasm of Year 9 students in achieving their potential and developing as mature, thoughtful and aspirational young people.
