Some of these students took part in the Girls Human Rights Festival and have set up a Girls Human Rights Mini Hub. The Charter Champions also took part in our Schools United Against Racism with visitors from Germany and completed a project on the impact of slavery in the local area.

Senior Student Leaders

In year 12 we have a range of Senior Student Leaders who engage in academic mentoring including peer reading and support for students in language lessons as well as our STEM masterclass students who have provided workshops for primary school children. Some of our Senior Student Leaders took part in the Envision project and set up a mentoring project for year 9 students around choosing their GCSE options. This year’s Envision group won a national competition for the implementation of their project.
