Pupil leadership provides an opportunity for children to participate actively in the decision-making processes at our school. Children are encouraged to take on leadership roles in an endeavour to increase their own leadership skills, act as effective role models for the pupil body and offer responsible service to their school and peers. We also offer practical leadership and development opportunities to enhance teamwork, communication skills, problem solving and initiative thus preparing our children for all that lies ahead at senior school.
On the school grounds, we focus on practical leadership and development tasks. These tasks are tailored to the year group to ensure progressive and fun problem solving whether as an introduction to leadership or a year group bonding day. It can also be turned into a 2 day programme with an overnight camp to aid development and teach camp craft and survival under canvas.
The ultimate test of teamwork, leadership and communication skills is to reach the summit of Mount Snowdon. There is a preparation phase to get acclimatised and learn the necessary skills followed by the challenge to reach the summit of the highest mountain in Wales. The accommodation is a mix of camping in barns and under canvas; teams will be completely self sufficient. The team performance will be carefully facilitated to ensure that all the children have a fulfilling and exciting experience.
