All students are actively encouraged to take on leadership roles within the school community. Student Voice elections are held each September for representatives of all Year Groups. Student Voice meets weekly with a Senior Leader to discuss student matters and work on projects within the school. In the past these have included improving the facilities, extending the range of healthy food served in the canteen, student wellbeing and input into the school rewards policies and procedures. Student Voice members publicise the Jack Petchey Award and choose the award recipient from nominations each term. Members of Student Voice have represented the school at local Student Voice Conferences and have been elected onto the Essex Young Assembly.
Extracurricular activities also provide students with further opportunities to develop their skills in organisation and leadership. For example students can choose to become Literacy, Language or Sports Leaders, promoting these areas of the curriculum through assemblies and other activities. Senior students often run or support with clubs for younger students.
