Student Leadership

At Thomas Keble, we recognise the importance of nurturing and developing leadership skills and qualities in our students. Our provision reflects the belief that student leaders can shine in a wide range of areas of school life, and with differing leadership styles.

Our leadership roles reflect the full breadth of our curriculum and extracurricular offer.

There are 3 defined paths for student leadership at Thomas Keble that have been derived from our previously highly successful programme of student leadership. Our student leadership opportunities focus on both Citizen action as well reinforcing our invigorated House system.

Path 1: House Leadership

This comprises of a hierarchical structure that allows student leadership to develop further for students as they arrive in year 7 and leave in year 11.

In years 7-9 we have 2 House Representatives per tutor group whose roll it is to support their tutor and Head of House in encouraging and supporting participation in both house matters and wider participation school life. In year 11 there are 2 Heads of house students per house that are from year 11 who support the Heads of House in our House competitions as well as representing the school in key internal external events. The House captains are supported by 6 Vice Captains also from year 11 who represent their house in the following areas: 1. Communications, 2. Performing Arts, 3. Sports, 4. STEM, 5. Humanities and literacy 6. Creative Arts.

Year 11 students hold their House Captain and Vice-Captain positions until the end of term 4 when our shadow House Captains and Vice Captains from year 10 take over so that year 11 can focus on their examination preparation.

Path 2: Action Project

Our second pathway of student leadership is based around action projects where students can provide a proposal to the school’s senior team to be actively involved in both supporting and changing aspects of the school. For example, currently we have an Eco group and a charitable group that focuses on supporting local charities.

Path 3: Subject and Pastoral Leadership

Our third pathway consists of a variety of different subject based student leadership ranging from Sports leaders, subject ambassadors, student librarians and peer mentors in year 10 who support younger year groups.
