Student Leadership Team

At Bottisham Village College, we believe that all students should have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, according to their strengths, their abilities and their interests.

The students appointed to be part of the Student leadership Team are important role models for other students throughout the College. We are very keen to make this role as inclusive as possible and we are able to offer support and mentoring if required. The role is varied and involves developing areas for school development often tailored to the interests and strengths of the students involved.

The team meet regularly with Mrs Rankine and work with other key members of staff, to help organise key events; for example Open Evening and end of term assemblies. These meetings also provide an opportunity for the team to discuss key issues of interest or suggest areas for development in the College.

In order to be successful in these roles, students need to offer:

• A commitment of time and energy
• A mature and responsible attitude
• The ability to work well with staff and peers
• Very good communications skills, including the ability to speak well in public &/a commitment to developing these skills further
