Viewed as school leaders by the younger generations, being a Sixth Form student is a responsibility and a privilege.
All our Sixth Formers will have the chance to take responsibility and to motivate, persuade and lead others. They are expected to lead by example and to work with energy, enthusiasm, empathy, initiative and with integrity and reliability.
There are many opportunities for leading and supporting younger members of the school and for making a contribution to the school and wider community. The elected Sixth Form Leadership Team will play a key role here, working with all staff and pupils across the school.
Volunteering in the community
Many of our Sixth Form students are keen to employ their talents to contribute towards the benefit of others in our local and school community. Many students grow in confidence as they see how they can make a positive contribution to the lives of others, they develop their interpersonal and communication skills helping people of all ages and backgrounds and possibly, most rewarding of all, they learn how enjoyable it can be to put others before themselves.
The School Council is a group elected by the students to support the interests and welfare of Sherrardswood‘s student body. The purpose of the School Council is to ensure that student issues and concerns are discussed and included as part of the ongoing improvements and overall management of the School. The Sixth Form Leadership Committee also oversees a number of student social and charity events across the whole school.
