Developing Leadership Skills

The skills of leadership are not skills you are necessarily born with, but rather skills you develop and hone through practice and time. At Barton Court Grammar School we seek to give you many and varied opportunities to develop your leadership skills throughout your time in the Sixth Form. As a young adult you will be expected to be a responsible role model in the school setting the right example for others to follow. There are many formal positions of leadership within the Sixth Form, these include: the Prefect Structure, the Tutor system; the Student Voice and the leadership of clubs and societies. In addition to these whole school leadership roles over half of Year 12 are involved in subject mentoring, providing support for younger students. Mentors report how fulfilling the role is and how, as well as helping the younger students, the mentors themselves also benefit from the opportunity to inspire interest in their subject. Therefore, whichever role you choose to play in the Sixth Form you can be confident that it will contribute to your development as a person and leave you better equipped to be successful in whatever you choose to do in the future.

“With such a warm and vibrant atmosphere, it is very easy to enjoy life in the Sixth Form at Barton Court Grammar School.” - Year 13 student
