Like all Star schools, our Academy has a Leadership specialism. Our Leadership offer is designed to instil the three interdependent Star Leadership Virtues of Performance Leadership, Moral Leadership and Civic Leadership – virtues that together ensure our pupils not only ‘do their best’ but ‘do the right thing’ and play a full role in society.
We provide our pupils with a unique learning experience, which gives them the skills and confidence to lead and manage in a variety of settings and situations. Focusing on service, teamwork, ambition and respect, our Leadership initiatives promote maturity, commitment and teamwork and enable our pupils to experience what it is like to stand up and take the lead.
We promote leadership in the broadest sense – not limited to traditional public roles. We are committed to developing confident individuals who are leaders at home, amongst their peers and friendship groups, their community and, later on, in the workplace.
Duke of Edinburgh
A Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is so much more than a ‘pat on the back’ for completing a programme of activities. It is recognition of a young person’s successful journey of self-discovery and development, renowned by employers and universities alike for the qualities young people have who have achieved a DofE Award. Its balanced programme develops the whole person in an environment of social interaction and team working. A DofE programme is a real adventure from beginning to end.
