Learners as Leaders

 

Headgirl and Headboy

for 2016-2017

At Connah’s Quay High School, learners are provided with every opportunity to develop their skills and qualities as leaders.  We have a school council, which has two representatives from each year group, who meet every half term.  Their discussions focus on all aspects of school life, from whole school policies to decisions about the kind of food provided in the school canteen! 

Our Year 11 learners are encouraged to become prefects in order to act as role models for the younger children and each year a Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl are selected to be the figureheads for the school population.  These young people are encouraged to take an active role around school,  in addition to being a positive visual presence.

Across the school, learners are given other opportunities to lead the school’s thinking on elements of learning and teaching.  Learners have also represented not only the school but also Flintshire and North Wales for consultations on areas linked to education and also on aspects of Welsh life affecting young people today. 

We have been nationally recognised for these contributions and have been approached by representatives of the Welsh Government to participate in consultation processes for young people on several occasions.
